Form Support in JavaScript (ES5) Uploader control

04 Aug 2021 / 2 minutes to read

The Uploader component works with HTML form like default file input. The following configuration is must to make the Uploader work inside the form.

*   `saveUrl` and `removeUrl` must be null.
*   `autoUpload` must be disabled.
*   `name` attribute must be added in input element.

The selected or dropped files are received as a collection in form action when the form is submitted. The form action handles the server-side operations that manage the file upload process. When you reset the form, the file list and data will be cleared.
