In an ItemAdded event receiver, is there a way to ascertain whether the file was uploaded via the "new item" button in the document library or whether it was dragged and dropped into the browser window?

1 Answer 1


In 2013 there are only 3 way to upload document in library. 1) Using New Item link. 2) Via drag and drop. 3) Open library using Window explorer.

Note:- Link to upload multiple item in library was removed in SharePoint 2013.
