    getting error when uploading the same document I have open in Word

    When I open up a document in word to check its contents and then try to upload that same document without first clsing Word I get the following error:
     
    Silverlight Error-open-[IO.IO_SharingViolation_File]
    Arguments:DocumentName.doc
    Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=106663&Version=3.0.40818.0&File=mscorlib.dll&Key=IO.IO_SharingViolation_File
     
     
     
    Is there any way around this?
    how can I allow the upload of files that are locked for edit?
    files that are locked for edit should still be viewable and therefore uploadable right?

    Hi,
     
    Users can't upload locked files.
     
    But you can modify the error message by this way :
     
    function CuteWebUI_AjaxUploader_OnError(msg)
    {
        if(msg.indexOf("IO_SharingViolation_File")!=-1)
        {
            alert("the file is locked");
            return false;
        }
    }

    my understanding though is that the file is locked for editing not for viewing.
    uploading the file need only view rights so why can't I upload a file that is only locked for edit?
     
    will this functionality ever be part of your control?

    Hi,
     
    That's the limitation of Silverlight addon , it do not allow our code to open a opened file.

    does this mean that I can upload opened files if i force the control to function in flash mode?

    Re: getting error when uploading the same document I have open in Word

    Hi,
     
    I have similar question for files that are currently openned when trying to upload.  I am trying to use the OnError handler you described in the previous response, but that event does not seem to be firing, nor is it in the documentation for the uploader global events.
     
    So basically, I'd like to generate a friendly error if the file is in use and also remove it from the upload queue.

    Re: getting error when uploading the same document I have open in Word

    I was getting the same error and it was indeed gone after I forced the control to use Flash:
     
    uploader.UploadType = UploadType.Flash;
     
    My question now is this:
    What happens if the user doesn't have Flash installed? Does it fall back to Silverlight? Or does it simply fail?
