In our SharePoint 2013 application we have developed a feature to limit max upload file to 250 MB.

Now this feature works in some Internet Explorer versions and doesn't work in others, as a result we have decided to scrap this feature and instead put a small text on upload.aspx informing the users about the file size limit.

Request your suggestions on this.

Got following solution from MSDN :

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript"> 
$(document).ready(function() {
if (window.location.href.toLowerCase().indexOf('/_layouts/15/upload.aspx') > 0) 
  $('input:checkbox').closest("td").append("The files uploaded no more than 250MB");

The above code should be integrated in the "upload.aspx" MasterPage.

  • Great! :) But you should leave the link in your post as well as a source Commented Aug 6, 2014 at 7:02

There is a workaround to add text to the Upload.aspx. Add following javascript code to your masterpage:

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    if (window.location.href.toLowerCase().indexOf('/_layouts/15/upload.aspx') > 0) {
Message for size limit"); } });

Above code will display message on all the upload pages. To show this message on particular document library upload page:

if (window.location.href.toLowerCase().indexOf('DOCUMENT_LIBRARY_URL/_layouts/15/upload.aspx') > 0)
  • Thanks Hemant . I added following Java Script in Seattle and Oslo Master pages but I don't see any change in the upload.aspx page after - <SharePoint:CustomJSUrl runat="server" /> Code - <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/custom.js"> jQuery(document).ready(function() { if (window.location.href.toLowerCase().indexOf('/_layouts/15/upload.aspx') > 0) { jQuery('input:checkbox').closest("td").append("Message for size limit"); } }); </script>

  • Make sure you have jquery reference added to your masterpage before the script block. Also add above code in regular script block under head tag. Commented Jul 25, 2014 at 5:07
  • Thanks Hemant. I got a solution on MSDN. Its similar to your suggestion.
