I have a page that is using the AsyncFileUpload AJAX control to upload a file. This all works fine but whenever another control forces a full page post back, the AsyncFileUpload control loses its value. (The file name that was selected) Viewstate is enabled
and I am not using an update panel.
Any idea what could cause this?

Are you using telerik AsyncFileUpload control?

First of all thanks for responding.
I tried to add history but that didn't seem to work either, I am probably doing something wrong. I stripped the code out again and tried it with a very basic page,
I am using the Toolkitscriptmanager on my MasterPage. Can you show me which code I need to add on server side to have the AsyncFileUpload control maintain its state?
<%@ Page Title="" Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default2.aspx.vb" Inherits="Default2" %>
<%@ Register assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" tagprefix="asp" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolderMain" Runat="Server">
<asp:AsyncFileUpload ID="AsyncFileUpload1" runat="server" />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />

Hi, Please refer this

That is just basic documentation about the control which does not mention anything about maintaining the state of the control of managing the history of it.

Please read about the page life cycle this is very helpfull to understand on how your page works. And for you to know where to put your code to avoid the post back problem. Please read more on this link
Hope can help you.

Although that is a great article, it does not solve my problem.
I am up to speed on control state and viewstate, my problem is that AsyncFileUpload does not maintain state at all.

Yes, that is one you need to understand the right place of your code. The solution on your problem is put your AsyncFileUpload outside of your updatepanel. Sorry for a delayed reply on your comment. I just busy for a couple of months.
Hope this idea can help you.

Hi, even when I don't use an updatepanel at all, the AsyncFileUpload still not maintains state. Try the simple piece of code on my second post and you will see what I mean. As soon as you click the submit button (with postback without AJAX) the state of
the AsyncFileUpload control is lost.

The problem is that the file has been uploaded to the server on postback. Even if the file name/path has been stored somewhere, it still can't be uploaded automatically for security. The file can't be uploaded without a user's interacion.

Please see the link below it will explain why and how to solve your problem.
Hope the link that I shared can help you.

Hi, I looked at that article but that one is using the standard upload control whereas I am using the AsyncFileUpload control form the AJAX toolkit. Storing the state to the session does not work either. The article uses a label to show the filename, I can
do that, that is not the problem but what I want is the filename inside of the AsyncFileUpload control to be maintained but this property is read only so I cannot repopulate it from a session.

Hi, I enabled history for the page and history itself works but the only control that does not maintain state, even with history turned on and working is the AsyncFileUpload control. In other words, it still does not maintain the filename. In one of my previous
posts I shows a simple piece of code that you can use to recreate the problem.

Appearantly I am not the only one who noticed this behavior. Check out http://ajaxcontroltoolkit.codeplex.com/workitem/26729

Although I appreciate your time and effort, none of your posts actually addresses my issue. I have a very good understanding of how the aSyncFileUpload control works but it seems like I have simply hit a bug: http://ajaxcontroltoolkit.codeplex.com/workitem/26729 Unless
someone has a workaround, I will just have to wait until it gets addressed.
