Try this jQuery Add-in : http://www.phpletter.com/Our-Projects/AjaxFileUpload/

We recently worked on a similar solution. In our case we already had a REST WCF service so it was easier to add a new API with 1 single 'Stream' parameter and then use the above add-in, which basically creates an iframe with multipart form and then posts the data to a WCF Service. The service receives the data in stream and it needs to be decoded as stated here : http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wcf/thread/7a387bc1-fb7a-4c7b-a17f-19fc167f9621.

Hope this helps, Jomit


Have you tried this instead? http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/websvcimaging.imaging.upload.aspx

I haven't really seen ECMAScript examples uploading files in SharePoint. Either use a Silverlight Control or one of the Web Services to handle content. Client Object Model comes in many shapes (Managed, ECMA and Silverlight - each with its own constraints and limitations).

Hope it helps, C:\Marius

  • Thanks for your answer i will check it but i think it's helpful, but can i add item from picture library to list by javascript or JQuery ? Commented May 14, 2012 at 20:22
  • If you would manage to wrap it around the call for the Web Service, yes you can. See here for an example blueimp.github.com/jQuery-File-Upload Commented May 14, 2012 at 23:50
