This example illustrates the usage of RadAsyncUpload and BinaryImage and how to display and edit images. The upload process requires that the files are uploaded to a custom handler and not to the hosting page. Files are stored in a temporary location until a Postback occurs. The temporary location is cleaned-up automatically.

In order to save the uploaded files into the database you could use the InputStream property to access the content of the uploaded files:

.CS
....
 UploadedFile file = radAsyncUpload.UploadedFiles[0];
 byte[] fileData = new byte[file.InputStream.Length];
 file.InputStream.Read(fileData, 0, (int)file.InputStream.Length);
 cmd.Parameters.Add("@Data", SqlDbType.Image);
 cmd.Parameters["@Data"].Value = fileData;
...

.VB
...
 Dim file As UploadedFile = radAsyncUpload.UploadedFiles(0)
 Dim fileData As Byte() = New Byte(file.InputStream.Length - 1) {}
 file.InputStream.Read(fileData, 0, CInt(file.InputStream.Length))
 cmd.Parameters.Add("@Data", SqlDbType.Image)
 cmd.Parameters("@Data").Value = fileData
...

There are a few important things to consider when using RadAsyncUpload:

  • RadAsyncUpload requires the Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource handler to be registered in the web.config
  • You need to ensure that any submit buttons on the page are disabled while upload is in progress. Otherwise, there is no guarantee that the files will be uploaded successfully
