Hi martin,

this component does not support destroy method by default. You can accomplish that by restarting form that contains this element with code similar to this:

window.reset = function(e) {

  <input id="file" type="file">
  <input id="text" type="text" value="Original">

<button onclick="reset($('#file'))">Reset file</button>
<button onclick="reset($('#text'))">Reset text</button>

If you need additional help I am here for you.

Best Regards, Piotr

I am using a modal with the upload element in the modal. The modal shows up when you hit edit on an item, I need to be able to reset the upload element. I want to know if there is a way destroy the upload box. Like the select $('.mdb-select').materialSelect({ destroy: true }); So Something like this. $('.file-upload').file_upload({ destroy: true });

Hi @martinmedina,

could you share with us your code? Do you use fileupload plugin or file upload jQuery component?
