What’s new (2.0.0)

New features

The new AutoUploadBlock allows users to browse or drop files for upload and have the system load them without clicking another button.  The block has a FilesUploadedEvent event which provides the uploaded files for processing.


Added configuration items DisableSubmit and SubmitButtonId.  When DisableSubmit=True and the SubmitButtonId is specified, the UploadBlock will disable the specified submit button while files are uploading.

Added Log configuration item. When Log=True, javascript logs will be displayed in the browser console providing some insight into the workings of the file upload component.

Changed configuration item MaxFileSize to MaxFileSizeMb to highlight the size should be specified in megabytes.

Bug fixes

The Label Idle configuration setting now correctly changes the displayed upload label.
