Validate Image on Drop in JavaScript (ES5) Uploader control

27 Oct 2021 / 2 minutes to read

The uploader component allows you to upload all type of images by setting *image/ ** to allowedExtensions property.

By default, the behavior is working with select a file using browse button. But, this behavior doesn’t support on drag and drop the files. You can handle this behavior manually using selected event by filtering the file types from application.

In the following example, validated image files using images/*. You are able to drag and drop the image files with extension of PNG, JPG, BPG, GIF and TIFF to upload it.
