UploadCtl Control

Windows SharePoint Services 3

This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies. This page may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

Allows multiple documents to be uploaded from an external application to a document library on a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services.

When a user clicks Upload Multiple Files on Upload.aspx, the page for uploading documents, an <OBJECT> tag for the control is created on the page as follows:

<OBJECT id=idUploadCtl name=idUploadCtl


WIDTH='100%' HEIGHT='350px'></OBJECT>


The CLSID used in this tag is the GUID that uniquely identifies the ActiveX control that is installed with the Microsoft Office system. To implement a custom control for uploading documents, specify a different GUID.

When the 2007 Microsoft Office system is installed on the client computer, this control is defined in the STSUPLD.DLL file, a dynamic-link library (DLL) that is installed on the client during 2007 Office System setup in the Local_Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12 directory.
