drag & drop not working: Cannot read property 'dropAreaText' of undefined


Can you please have a look at attached code and tell me why the drag & drop area of the uploadbox control is not visible/working?
(page: WebForm1.aspx)

I see below error in chrome:

ej.web.all.min.js:10 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'dropAreaText' of undefined
    at Object._dragAndDrop (ej.web.all.min.js:10)
    at Object._initialize (ej.web.all.min.js:10)
    at Object._init (ej.web.all.min.js:10)
    at new <anonymous> (ej.web.all.min.js:10)
    at init.n.fn.(anonymous function) [as ejUploadbox] (http://localhost:56919/js/syncfusion/Scripts/ej/ej.web.all.min.js:10:23743)
    at WebForm1.aspx:58

Thank you

Hi Frederik,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.  
We have analyzed the reported issue with Uploadbox and suspect that the issue must be possibly because the localized text for the culture you were trying to set “nl-BE” is not defined in your application. So, you need to add the localized text for this culture to get rid of this issue as depicted in the below code.  

<script src="js/syncfusion/ej.culture.nl-BE.js"></script> 
ej.Uploadbox.Locale = ej.Uploadbox.Locale || {}; 
ej.Uploadbox.Locale["nl-BE"] = { 
    buttonText: { 
        upload: "Uploaden", 
        browse: "Blader", 
        cancel: "Annuleer", 
        close: "Dichtbij" 
    dialogText: { 
        title: "Upload Box", 
        name: "Naam", 
        size: "Grootte", 
        status: "toestand" 
    dropAreaText: "Drop bestanden of klik om te uploaden", 
    filedetail: "Het geselecteerde bestand is te groot. Selecteer een bestand binnen het geldige grootte.", 
    denyError: "Bestanden met #Extension extensies zijn niet toegestaan.", 
    allowError: "Alleen bestanden met #Extension extensies zijn toegestaan.", 
    cancelToolTip: "Annuleer", 
    removeToolTip: "Verwijderen", 
    retryToolTip: "opnieuw proberen", 
    completedToolTip: "Voltooid", 
    failedToolTip: "Mislukt", 
    closeToolTip: "Dichtbij", 
Please find the corrected sample in the below link.
