Uploading file with Progress Bar


In this article I am going to show how we can upload file with progress bar. I posted articles about uploading file, but in this article I am showing uploading of file with progress bar. Here in this article I am upload two type files namely video and image. First user have to select  what type of file he/she want to upload and after uploading he can see uploaded file below in a datalist.

The aspx code for this is
