Topic: File Upload max file quantity

Michaël De Schutter priority asked 3 months ago

Expected behavior

I am using the File Upload component, and I have set a maximum file quantity of 5. It is supposed to prevent users from uploading more than 5 files.

Actual behavior

Initially, it seems like the files are not being selected when I try to upload more than 5. However, when I hover over the file upload area, it indicates that my files are indeed uploaded. Furthermore, upon submitting, the additional files are also added.

Can you explain how you did this. Because I tried to do this and was unable to replicate this behavior.

I use these attributes: type="file" id="input-file-now" class="file-upload-input" data-mdb-multiple="true" data-mdb-file-upload-init data-mdb-max-file-quantity="5"
There is nothing more that I use, these are the same from the snippet.

I do understand that part. But what I cannot replicate is adding 5 files. How you do it? Dragging? Browser upload form? One by one, all at the same time?

We do have example of file upload with limit in out docs:

Are you able to add there more than 3 files?
