25 Feb 20222 minutes to read

You can upload a file programmatically using upload method.
The selected files data, get from getFilesData public method in uploader.

The upload method behaves differently based on its arguments.

  • If this method receives any files as arguments, those files only start to upload.
  • If it has no argument then all the selected files are will start to upload.
