I would like to upload multiple files in Sharepoint "Shared Documents" with user control this is my ascx :

 <asp:FileUpload ID="fileBrowse" runat="server" />
 <asp:Button ID="fileUpload" runat="server" Text="Upload Files" OnClick="fileUpload_Click" />

and my code behind :

  protected void fileUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (fileBrowse.HasFile)
            string filename = fileBrowse.PostedFile.FileName;
          //  string allpath = Path.GetFileName(fileBrowse.PostedFile.FileName);
         //   string all = Path.GetFullPath(fileBrowse.PostedFile.FileName);
            String fileToUpload = @filename;
            String sharePointSite = "http://.../sites/GM/";
            String documentLibraryName = "Shared Documents";

            using (SPSite oSite = new SPSite(sharePointSite))
                using (SPWeb oWeb = oSite.OpenWeb())
                    if (!System.IO.File.Exists(fileToUpload))
                        throw new FileNotFoundException("File not found.", fileToUpload);

                    SPFolder myLibrary = oWeb.Folders[documentLibraryName];

                    // Prepare to upload
                    Boolean replaceExistingFiles = true;
                    String fileName = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(fileToUpload);
                    FileStream fileStream = File.OpenRead(fileToUpload);

                    // Upload document
                    SPFile spfile = myLibrary.Files.Add(fileName, fileStream, replaceExistingFiles);

  • you have to allow multiple files on fileupload control and loop through the files users selected..... this is supported in .net 4.0...else you need to have multiple file upload control with your button control click reading each file upload controls and uploading to sharepoint...

Please add AllowMultiple="true" in your file uploader control

And in code use

if (fileBrowse.HasFiles)
foreach (HttpPostedFile uploadedFile in fileBrowse.PostedFiles)
 /// your code for file upload.
  • Sunil sahu, I will try it now

  • error message :foreach statement cannot operate on variables of type 'System.Web.HttpPostedFile' because 'System.Web.HttpPostedFile' does not contain a public definition for 'GetEnumerator'
