Uncaught ReferenceError: args is not definedI am trying to rename the uploaded image in order to avoid duplicate names. 

I tried to follow https://ej2.syncfusion.com/aspnetcore/documentation/rich-text-editor/how-to/rename-images-in-server/

But when I do, it doesn't work. 

The following are part of the cshtml:

@using Syncfusion.JavaScript;
@using Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models;

<form asp-controller="Classification" asp-action="Create" class="mt-3" method="post">

   <ejs-richtexteditor ejs-for="@Model.Classification.Description" id="defaultRTE"imageUploadSuccess="onImageUploadSuccess">
        <e-richtexteditor-insertimagesettings saveUrl="/Classification/SaveImage" path="Images/Content/"></e-richtexteditor-insertimagesettings>
        <e-richtexteditor-iframesettings enable="true"></e-richtexteditor-iframesettings>
        <e-richtexteditor-quicktoolbarsettings image="@ViewBag.image"></e-richtexteditor-quicktoolbarsettings>

        <e-richtexteditor-toolbarsettings items="@ViewBag.tools"></e-richtexteditor-toolbarsettings>


    function onImageUploadSuccess() {
        if (args.e.currentTarget.getResponseHeader('name') != null) {
            args.file.name = args.e.currentTarget.getResponseHeader('name');
            var filename = document.querySelectorAll(".e-file-name")[0];
            filename.innerHTML = args.file.name.replace(document.querySelectorAll(".e-file-type")[0].innerHTML, '');
            filename.title = args.file.name;

on the controller I have the following code:

        public ActionResult SaveImage(IList<IFormFile> UploadFiles)
                foreach (IFormFile file in UploadFiles)
                    if (UploadFiles != null)
                        string filename = ContentDispositionHeaderValue.Parse(file.ContentDisposition).FileName.Trim('"');
                        Guid g = Guid.NewGuid();
                        string GuidString = Convert.ToBase64String(g.ToByteArray());
                        GuidString = GuidString.Replace("=", "");
                        GuidString = GuidString.Replace("+", "");
                        string onlyfilename = GuidString + $@"{filename}";
                        filename = hostingEnv.ContentRootPath + "\\wwwroot\\Images\\Content\\" + GuidString + $@"{filename}";
                        if (!System.IO.File.Exists(filename))
                            Response.ContentType = "application/json; charset=utf-8";
                            Response.Headers.Add("name", onlyfilename);
                            Response.StatusCode = 204;
                            using (FileStream fs = System.IO.File.Create(filename))
                            //Response.HttpContext.Features.Get<IHttpResponseFeature>().ReasonPhrase = "File already exists.";
                            Response.ContentType = "application/json; charset=utf-8";
                            Response.Headers.Add("name", onlyfilename);
                            Response.StatusCode = 204;
                            Response.HttpContext.Features.Get<IHttpResponseFeature>().ReasonPhrase = "File already exists.";
            catch (Exception e)
                Response.ContentType = "application/json; charset=utf-8";
                Response.StatusCode = 204;
                Response.HttpContext.Features.Get<IHttpResponseFeature>().ReasonPhrase = "No Content";
                Response.HttpContext.Features.Get<IHttpResponseFeature>().ReasonPhrase = e.Message;
            return Content("");

I checked and the developer tools of chrome. There I have the response header as:

  1. content-type:
    application/json; charset=utf-8
  2. date:
    Fri, 10 Jan 2020 05:47:06 GMT
  3. name:
  4. server:
  5. status:
  6. x-powered-by:

But I also see in the console an error:
Uncaught ReferenceError: args is not defined

Any suggestions how to get this working. I am very new to a lot of the related technologies though.
