Achieve file upload programmatically

You can upload a file programmatically using the upload method. Get the selected files data from the 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, all the selected files start to upload.
