actionComplete won't trigger when a single file got removed from List


I'm using the Fileuploader in my Page and recently detected, that when I add a bunch of files to the Uploader and remove one or more by the X - Icon, the actionComplete function would not be triggering anymore.
This is my Uploader:

When i don't remove a File from the list, then everything is fine and works as it should.

I'm using the Syncfusion Version 17.3.21

Thanks and regards

Hi Dominic, 
Greetings from Syncfusion support. 
We have checked the reported requirement. We would like to let us know that actionComplete event in uploader component will triggered after all the successful uploading of all the files. So, it will not be triggered when click the remove before the uploading. However, after the successful uploading, if you click the remove icon then, removing event will trigger. Please refer the below sample and API link,

I'm sorry for my late response.

So i Updated my Version to and tried it again.

The answer you told me is that it is not possible to remove a file from an existing list and then upload the remaining files, right?
So why you support this: ?

How do I have to handle this if I accidentally selected an incorrect file and added it to the uploader, then i want to remove it but after the removal the actionComplete will not trigger anymore?

Maybe i will explain it step by step:
- I add 5 files to the uploader
- i remove 1 from the uploader clicking: X 
- there are 4 files left
- i click upload
- the 4 files are in my upload directory, but then the actionComplete will not be triggered

In you example project the same happens:

This example is with 0 files removed:

This example is with one removed, and there is no loging entry in the console:

TY very much for your time.
Best regards Dominic

Hi Felipe de Abajo,

Yes, we have already addressed the issue regarding 'ActionComplete' not triggering when a single file is removed from the list in version 18.2.56. This fix has been incorporated in the latest version, and we have verified that it is working as intended. For your convenience, please find a sample attached for reference
