Topic: File upload plugin does not accept .xlsx, .docx formats

vtaevere free asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior

File upload plugin allows file extensions of type ".xlsx", ".docx" when specifying [acceptedExtensions]

Actual behavior

"Your file has incorrect file format" error message is displayed although browser "Open" dialog filters files correctly by format.

No such error occurs, when [acceptedExtensions]="'.pdf'"

Our team is running into a similar issue but on version 2.0.2 of the file upload plugin. We have the following allowed: [acceptedExtensions]="'.pdf, .docx, .txt, .xlsx'".

With the file extension list as such, we get no error when selecting a .pdf, but if we do either .txt, .docx, or .xlsx, we get errors: enter image description here
