File Upload validation

Hi,

I am using the File upload widget to upload the files into system repository.

 

How to validate the chosen file name is already available into repository before click on upload button?.

Could you please give the steps how to validate?.

Currently what is happening is its overriding existing file if file name is same.

 

Thank you in advance....

Unfortunately your picture is not visible in the last post.

The idea is, that the file upload button is disabled and not visible, but instead you can use the upload action.

 

You can trigger the upload action by a button click or any other thingworx event on the UI.

You can return a list of file names from the Repository you're using through GetFileListing service in FileRepository Template.  You can compare the file name with new file through some script or you can just post the list and let the user compare by themselves.

A while ago, I had a similar problem of doing some validation. The post from zyuan1 is good.
As I wanted to automate it, I changed the standard widget, by deactivating the "upload" button and enable the widget to trigger upload by a service.
