jQuery Uploading Multiple Files using with Uploadify Plugin

Dec 19, 2012

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


In previous article I explained
jQuery lightbox image slideshow, Generate thumbnail from images, Generate thumbnails from YouTube videos using JQuery, jQuery password strength examples and many articles relating to JQuery,, SQL Server etc. Now I will explain how to upload multiple files in using uploadify plugin in JQuery.

We can implement this concept by using uploadify 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 runat="server">
<title>jQuery Upload multiple files in</title>
<script src=""></script>
<link href="uploadify.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script src="js/jquery.uploadify.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
'swf': 'uploadify.swf',
'uploader': 'Handler.ashx',
'cancelImg': 'cancel.png',
'buttonText': 'Select Files',
'fileDesc': 'Image Files',
'fileExt': '*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.gif;*.png',
'multi': true,
'auto': true
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:FileUpload ID="file_upload" runat="server" />
If you observe above code in header section I added some of css and script files those files you can get it from attached folder or you can get it from here uploadify plugin and if you observe in uploadify function I used Handler.ashx in this we will write the code to upload files in folder for that Right click on your application >> Select Add New Item >> Select Generic Handler file and Give name as Handler.ashx >> Click OK

Open Handler.ashx file and write the following code

C# Code

<%@ WebHandler Language="C#" Class="Handler" %>

using System.Web;

public class Handler : IHttpHandler {
public void ProcessRequest (HttpContext context) {
context.Response.ContentType = "text/plain";
HttpPostedFile uploadFiles = context.Request.Files["Filedata"];
string pathToSave = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/UploadFiles/") + uploadFiles.FileName;
public bool IsReusable {
get {
return false;

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

Hi sir, your site is very helpful.

How to send automatic emails based on schedule i.e once in a week/once in two weeks / once in a month??
i have a column in a table for defining schedule. if the schedule is "Once in week" then mails should be sent automatically once in a week, or if the schedule is "Once in two weeks" then mails should be sent once in two weeks,or if the schedule is "Once in a month" then mail should be sent once in a month.
please give me best idea or code for schedule emails.

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

how to keep files(progress bar status) that have completed uploading in the queue.........progress bar get disaapear after uploading a file.. i want to keep tht progress bar and show it to user..

any solution for that..plz help..

Anonymous said...

thanks for this - have you been able to get the onCancel event working when auto is true? This would seem important as we need to delete files if the user chooses to cancel them after auto uploading.
