13 Feb 20232 minutes to read

By using uploading event, you can get the file size before upload it to server.
File object contains the file size in bytes only.
You can convert the size to standard formats (KB or MB) using bytesToSize method.

import { Component, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { EmitType } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';
import { UploaderComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs';
    selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: 'default.html',
    styleUrls: ['index.css']

export class AppComponent {
    public uploadObj: UploaderComponent;
    public autoUpload: boolean = false;
    public path: Object = {
        saveUrl: '',
        removeUrl: ''
    public onBeforeUpload: EmitType<Object> = (args: any) => {
        // get the file size in bytes
        let sizeInBytes: number = args.fileData.size;
        // get the file size in standard format
        alert("File size is: " + this.uploadObj.bytesToSize(sizeInBytes));
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { UploaderModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs';

 * Module
    imports: [
        BrowserModule, UploaderModule
    declarations: [AppComponent],
