    Good day

    I create an image library saving in file system
    Select 300 image to be uploaded
    only 100 images are uploaded

    a) is this a SF limitation
    b) is this a limitation of selecting multiple images (file dialog)
    c) is this some thing I can fix.
    d) if this is something that can not be changed at the moment any idea how best to handle this for clients

    Hello,

    Unfortunately the item limit is hard-coded to 100 items.

    You can however upload the files from the API. You can find more information about how to do this here.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    Kind regards,

    Any explanation why this is hardcoded?
    Any explanation why you don't even think about changing this
    Any explanation why there is no warning about this

    Very unsatisfying answer. Think about how the client will handle this.

    PS: am I the only one running  into this kind of problems?

    Hi,

    this limit is well know at Telerik. A user has report this problem months ago.
    But the answer is the same. They are not willing to solve it.

    If you are not able/willing to change the limit at least correct the message you are sending

    See screenshot

    a) Bilder not bilder in German
    b) Multiple bilder can be uploaded at a time 
       - Not translated to german
       - Please at least change this to 'A maximum of 100 images can be uploaded at a given time' or anything you feel would be better ->

    German: Maximal 100 Bilder können gleichzeitig ausgewählt und hochgeladen weren.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the helpful feedback

    Regarding the missing German language translation, I have logged a PITS issue which you can monitor here.

    I have also logged a feature request for a 100 item limitation warning which you can see here

    @Markus

    Uploading 300 images in one hit... sheesh! I don't envy you.

    Perhaps a nice feature could be a auto-zip upload, where the client zips the selected files into a temporary container, uploads the single file, and then the server unpacks it ??

    What should be problematic in uploding 300 Images or more in one step.

    The control do it Image by Image. Maybee HTMl has prolem with that. But in Silverlight you can Design uploading with much more Options. Take a look into an FTP Client . This Functions are the reference for massive Uploads. We have build for our Software thus functions with Silverlight.

    And we also build in Dynamic chunksize . To give best User Experience. But most WebDevleopers think they are the Standard. And offer us limited User Experience.
