25 Feb 20221 minute 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.

@using Syncfusion.EJ2

<div class="col-lg-8 control-section">
    <div class="control_wrapper">
        @Html.EJS().Uploader("UploadFiles").Uploading("onBeforeUpload").AutoUpload(false).AsyncSettings(new Syncfusion.EJ2.Inputs.UploaderAsyncSettings { SaveUrl = "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/services/api/uploadbox/Save", RemoveUrl = "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/services/api/uploadbox/Remove" }).Render()
    </div>
</div>

<script>

    function onBeforeUpload(args) {
        var uploadObj = document.getElementById("UploadFiles").ej2_instances[0];
        // get the file size in bytes
        var sizeInBytes = args.fileData.size;
        // get the file size in standard format
        alert("File size is: " + uploadObj.bytesToSize(sizeInBytes))
    }

</script>
.control_wrapper {
        max-width: 500px;
        margin: auto;
    }

    .control_wrapper .e-upload .e-upload-drag-hover {
        margin: 0;
    }
