jQuery Upload Multiple Files using with Multiple File Upload Plugin Example

Dec 20, 2012

Here I will explain how to upload multiple files in using JQuery with multiple file upload plugin.

We can implement this concept by using multiple file upload plugin with few simple steps for that first create new web application >> Right click on your application >> Select Add New Folder and Give name as UploadFiles.

After completion of folder creation write the following code in your aspx page

<html xmlns="">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
<title>jQuery Upload multiple files in</title>
<script src=""></script>
<script src="jquery.MultiFile.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:FileUpload ID="file_upload" class="multi" runat="server" />
<asp:Button ID="btnUpload" runat="server" Text="Upload"
onclick="btnUpload_Click" /><br />
<asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server" />
If you observe above code in header section I added one script file that file you can get it from attached folder or you can get it from here multiple file upload plugin

Now in code behind add following namespaces

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Web;
After that write the following code in code behind

C# Code

protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
HttpFileCollection fileCollection = Request.Files;
for (int i = 0; i < fileCollection.Count; i++)
HttpPostedFile uploadfile = fileCollection[i];
string fileName = Path.GetFileName(uploadfile.FileName);
if (uploadfile.ContentLength > 0)
uploadfile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/UploadFiles/") + fileName);
lblMessage.Text += fileName + "Saved Successfully<br>";

Imports System.Web

Public Class Handler2 : Implements IHttpHandler

Public Sub ProcessRequest(ByVal context As HttpContext) Implements IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest
context.Response.ContentType = "text/plain"
Dim uploadFiles As HttpPostedFile = context.Request.Files("Filedata")
Dim pathToSave As String = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/UploadFiles/") & uploadFiles.FileName
End Sub

Public ReadOnly Property IsReusable() As Boolean Implements IHttpHandler.IsReusable
Return False
End Get
End Property

End Class
