All DevExpress ASP.NET Controls and MVC Extensions are built upon a shared web development framework. To learn more about optimizations such as web accessibility (Sec 508), AJAX, SharePoint, touch/gesture and CSS support, visit the ASP.NET Standards and Compliance webpage.

Multi-File Upload (WebForms and MVC): DevExpress Navigation and Layout Controls
Multi-File Upload (WebForms and MVC)

The DevExpress WebForms Upload Control and MVC Extension allow you to introduce file upload capabilities in your web application with ease. Once you place this control onto a web page, end-users can select the files they wish to upload to the server by entering the file’s path into a text box or by invoking the standard Open file dialog. Since multi-file upload is fully supported, the control can display multiple text boxes, with corresponding file Browse buttons.

File upload operations can be initiated by clicking the built-in Upload button, by calling a specially designed client-side method or in response to a postback. During file upload, users are automatically notified of progress via the built-in Progress Panel. A cancel button can optionally terminate all upload operations.

You have full control over the UI experience and as such, you are free to substitute the built-in UI with custom controls.
