Pure ASP Upload - Upload with Progress Bar
Upload with Progress Bar
In this tutorial we will explain how to make a file upload with a progress bar.
How to do it
To make the file upload with progress bar, you need to:
- Start with basic upload page
Start with an upload page where you have Pure ASP Upload on it. If you haven't done it yet, go through the Simple file upload tutorial.
- Open the Pure ASP Upload dialog
Select the Pure ASP Upload dialog by double clicking it on the Sever behaviors list.
Make sure you've entered a long timeout. For more info see the Uploading large files tutorial.
- Select the desired progress bar
- Save and done
When you need to restrict the size of the uploaded images, you need to fill in the minimum and/or maximum width and height on the Advanced tab. If you leave one of those values empty it means it is unlimited. The sizes are in pixels.
Currenly Pure ASP Upload is distributed with the following progress bars:
Blue Flash Progress Bar
Red Flash Progress Bar
Green Flash Progress Bar
Yellow Flash Progress Bar
Cool Green Flash Progress Bar
DHTML Progress Bar
File Copy Progress Bar
You can also write your own progress bars and plug them in Pure ASP Upload.
After you select a progress bar you will see that extra files are copied to your site. You have to upload those to your remote site as well.
Save your page then, upload it to your server, and you are done! Go to your website and test it - you should be able to upload files and a nice progress bar will appear.
