FileUpload control will not work inside an UpdatePanel control because of file uploading and file manipulations are restricted by default in the client side for security reasons. Check this link for alternative solution. You can create your own custom form control for file upload and then use that instead.

Hi Arun Kumar,

I have created custom control for file upload, code behind clone from ~\CMSFormControls\Media\UploadControl.ascx

I found it contain a code to register postback trigger in uploader

protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
//some stuff code...
// Register post back button for update panel
    if (Form.ShowImageButton && Form.SubmitImageButton.Visible)
    else if (Form.SubmitButton.Visible)

But if i remove that code, it won't upload anything.

I wonder if is there a way to make it work withou postback ?
