Silent File upload


Is it possible to upload a file, using SAPUI5,

from a known file location without the user

having to pick it himself (no file menu),

and sending it thenĀ  to R3?

Thank you

    But why would you want that..?

    What you could do is use a file uploader control, and not "paint/render" it on the screen.

    Set the uploadURL, then upload the file.


    JsDoc Report - SAP UI development Toolkit for HTML5 - API Reference - sap.ui.unified.FileUploader

    Sample code:

    FileUpload - SAPUI5 Demo Kit

    Though I really question allot of things..

    Would you want to do this with SAPUI5?

    Why would you want to do a silent upload to your R3 system?

    • Hi Yuval,

      Why do you need to get XSTRING at the front-end? You just upload the file and you will get XSTRING at the gateway CREATE_STREAM method that you can use to upload to DMS.

      Even I have the same curosity, what is the scenario that requires silent upload?
