Can you post complete code you are using to upload the file? I mean maybe you are using Button Click event. Can you show that?

ya sure this is my complete code

protected void btnsend_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string uname=txtto.Text;
string subject = txtsub.Text;
string msg = Editor1.Content;
int id= obj_msg.fun_inv_selectuserid(uname,ref dt);
Label1.Text = "";
values[0] = Convert.ToString(userid);
values[1] = Convert.ToString(id);
values[2] = subject;
values[3] = msg;
//if (FileUpload1.PostedFile == null && FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName == "")
// obj_msg.fun_Insertmessage(values);
string filename = uploadimg.FileName;
string imagepath = "Uploads/" + filename;
uploadimg.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("Uploads/" + filename));
values[4] = filename;
values[5] = imagepath;

txtto.Text = " ";
txtsub.Text = " ";

Is your FileUpload inside the UpdatePanel?

Any time it will be happen when working with file upload control and the best solution is to use update panel to reduce this kind of error. I hope its will be working properly...:-)

<table width="100%" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="2">
                                           <td class="style2">
                                               Enter Access Path :
                                               &nbsp; &nbsp;
                                               <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
                                               <asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" />
                                               <asp:Button ID="cmd_getpath" runat="server" OnClick="cmd_getpath_Click" Text="Get Path" />
                                               <asp:TextBox ID="txtPath" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                                   <Triggers >
                                                   <asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="cmd_getpath" />

Refer - FileUpload Class[^].
The FileUpload control is designed to be used only in postback scenarios and not in asynchronous postback scenarios during partial-page rendering. When you use a FileUpload control inside an UpdatePanel[^] control, the file must be uploaded by using a control that is a PostBackTrigger[^] object for the panel.

  • Add PostBackTrigger for FileUpload1.
        <asp:Postbacktrigger controlid="FileUpload1" />
  • Use FileName property to check whether the File is present or not.
    if (FileUpload1.FileName != string.Empty)
          //do something
