Lesson 19 - cWebFileUploadButton

In this lesson we will take a look at the WebFileUploadButton control. The WebFileUploadButton is a button that opens a file selection windowenabling the user to upload files to the server and utilize them at a later time. This is particularly useful for tasks such as adding pictures. 


  • We have made a new view in the WebOrderMobile Example 
  •  When you want to implement the WebFileUploadButtonyou can drag it from the class palette or code it yourself

  • As you can seethe "OnFileUploadfunction is automatically generated. 

  • Keep in mind that you need to register the upload folder. 
  • By default, the "Uploads" folder in the "Data" directory is registered, but if you want to use a different folder, you need to register it. 

  •  Nowlet's look at the button. As you can seethere is now a button in the view. 
  • If we click ityou'll notice that the file explorer opens

  • You can select any file you want, and it will be uploaded to the "Upload" directory.
