I've noticed that the ImageUploader seems to hang Windows when the default folder which is displayed contains lots of large images. I've set rememberlastfolder to false to work around the problem...but has anyone else noticed this problem or have any other workarounds?

I'm using version 2.0x or something. Is that addressed in a later release?

By hanging i mean the typical behavior when an application stops responding on windows...

Thanks,

Jaisen

This happens because Image Uploader 3.0 has SignatureFilter="Images" by default.

Try to turn off it using following code:

Code:
<param name="SignatureFilter" value="All">


Our next release will have turn off signature filter by default.

Also it happens if you enable checks for maximum width/height.

For our implementation it's really nice to be able to filter only images.

Is there a way to only enable certain files to be selected for upload (aside from filtering what's displayed)? I wouldn't want to do it strictly on the serverside since the files would have to be uploaded before they're checked for type.

Maybe some javascript to check the extensions of files in the upload list and remove or notify the user for non-image files.

You can use FileMask property in order to filter files using their extensions.

Code:
<param name="FileMask" value="*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.jpe;*.gif;*.png;*.tiff;*.tif;*.psd">

Fedor,

Sorry if i've misunderstood...but isn't the masking what causes the "hanging" for directories with a large number of images?

Masking is very cheap as we check just file name. On other side when we check file singature, image width or height, we need to read it from file. Opening file is rather expensive operation, that's why it causes "hanging".
