At some point like when the browser closes, I need to set the initial chunk index to resume the uploading of chunks.

Hi Vinzie,

Greetings from Syncfusion Support,

  • Exact scenario of the facing issue at your end
  • Error messages if any

Thank you for assisting me on this.

Currently, I am facing a kind of issue of I cannot find a way to resume uploading a chunk of file at particular index when the browser is accidentally closes when the upload is ongoing.

What I am trying to do right now is since I am saving the file chunk information (e.g., chunk index, etc.) in the database every time the chunk is uploaded, then I know for sure at which particular chunk index the uploading stops. Now, when the browser reopens again, I can just get the file instance and invoke the upload function from UploaderComponent. However, I could not find a way to set the initial chunk index of the file I am trying to upload. It always start at chunk index 0. 

Can you help me on this?

Thank you.

Hi Vinzie, 
We would like to inform you that if the chrome browser is getting closed while uploading is in progress, the component will be destroyed with all the instances. So, we could not persist the data about the uploading files in any place and component will be re-rendered again. This is the default behavior of the uploading process when the browser is getting closed.
