Release Notes

Silverlight File Uploader Release 1.0


This .zip file contains a working Visual Studio 2010 solution with the full source code and related example files. (The source code will work with the .NET Framework version 3.5 or higher; the Silverlight app will work with Silverlight 2 or higher.)
  1. Unzip the files and open the solution file in visual studio. note: If you get a 'The project location is not trusted' warning in Visual Studio, it is safe to ignore it. You can avoid these warning if desired by unblocking the .zip file -- browse to it in windows explorer, right-click Properties -> General tab -> click Unblock at the bottom.
  2. Make sure that SilverlightFileUploader.Web is set as the StartUp project (right-click on SilverlightFileUploader.Web in the solution explorer, choose Set as StartUp Project).
  3. Run the project (F5 or control-F5) and navigate to TestPage.aspx (you can also set this as the start page by right-clicking on it in the solution explorer and choosing Set as Start Page).

That's it! Follow the instructions on TestPage.aspx to specify where the example will upload files on your system -- see Example Usage for further details.

Reviews for this release

Great contribution to the community. Each of the silverlight upload projects have pro's and con's. For future upgrades on yours, I would personally like to see added functionality as properties of the control and may contribute these changes later to at least have the option to pass in the upload path or allow "relative" paths (Server.MapPath("~/")) in the web.config.

I have set the write permissions on the sandbox folder but the file isnt getting uploaded. No errors are thrown. Will give it another 30min or so investigating...

Good base project to work from.

Excellent start for a much needed control. Easy to use, just a few minor interface revisions I would make. Using it in a production ASP.NET 2.0 app, with no problems.
