How to Begin Using BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended

To start using BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended, you need to import the namespace by adding the following line to your _Imports.razor file:

@using BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended

Using InputFileComponent

To use the InputFileComponent, add the following code to your component:

@code {    private void LoadFiles(FilesUploadEventArgs e)    {        ...    }}

This will create an InputFileComponent that is initialized with a function LoadFiles which is called whenever a file is uploaded.

Using Drag and D R O P

You can enable drag and d r o p functionality in the InputFileComponent by adding the Parameters attribute. Here's an example:

@using BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended@code{    BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.InputFileParameters Parameters = new BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.InputFileParameters()    {        DragAndD R O POptions = new BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.DragAndD R O POptions        {            CanD R O PFiles = true        }    };    private void LoadFiles(FilesUploadEventArgs e)    {        // ...    }}


This will enable drag and d r o p functionality for the InputFileComponent.

Using Copy and Paste

You can also enable copy and paste functionality in the InputFileComponent by adding the Parameters attribute. Here's an example:

@using BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended@code{    BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.InputFileParameters Parameters = new BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.InputFileParameters()    {        AllowPasteFiles = true    };    private void LoadFiles(FilesUploadEventArgs e)    {        // ...    }}

This will enable copy and paste functionality for the InputFileComponent.

Using Upload Button

You can use an upload button with the InputFileComponent by adding the Parameters attribute. Here's an example:

@using BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended@code {    BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.InputFileParameters Parameters;    Task UploadFles(IReadOnlyList files)    {        // process your upload        // ...        await Task.Delay(1);        return true;    }    protected override void OnInitialized()    {        Parameters = new BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.InputFileParameters()        {            ButtonOptions = new BlazorBasics.InputFileExtended.ValueObjects.ButtonOptions            {                ButtonShow = true,                CleanOnSuccessUpload = true                        }        };        Parameters.ButtonOptions.OnSubmit = UploadFles;    }}

This will add an upload button to the InputFileComponent.
