I have a problem where NeatUpload's MultiFile control sometimes opens the standard single file selection dialog instead of SWFUpload's dialog that allows multiple files to be added at once.
This happens to me in IE 8.0.7600.16385 and in Firefox 3.6.10. I have updated my Flash player today and have version 10.1.85.3. It also happened in several different browsers on other computers.
The problem occurs on your demo site at http://www.brettle.com/Demo.aspx as well as on the demo when installed on my own server and when I insert the controls on my own page (of course with UseFlashIfAvailable="true"). I have tested it both using
inline and popup progress bar to be sure, and the behavior is the same in both cases.
To specify what I mean when I say "sometimes": When loading/reloading the page, it will either be in a state where I get the correct multifile dialog every time I press "Add file", or it will be in a state where I get the single file
dialog every time. Reloading/reopening the page gives a chance that the behavior changes. However, I seem to often get the same behavior many times in succession, making testing difficult. It can work 30 times in a row and then fail 30 times in a row.
Note that I am not talking about the fact that the flash video is not loaded until after a few seconds. When it fails, it gives the single file dialog no matter how long you wait or how many times you try.
On one occasion where I clicked the "Add file" button several times quickly after loading the page, I was able to first get the single file dialog before flash was loaded, then the multi file dialog, and finally the single file dialog again, as
if the flash movie got unloaded or removed.
Also, the flash video is listed under Media Info in Firefox when it works, and not when it fails. So that seems to point to the cause of the problem.
of course just my guess, as I dont know the code.
