Hello, i was wondering if i would be able to use this control to upload to a database?

You can. Create a custom adapter and override the processfile method.

First this is a fantastic control.  Big kudos to the author.  

I just wrote an object that does the IO to the database and file system simultaneously.  


    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">

            <fjx:FileUploader ID="FileUploader1" runat="server" OnFileReceived="fileUploader_FileReceived">
                    <fjx:FileSaverAdapter FolderName="Folder1"></fjx:FileSaverAdapter>


Code Behind:  

        protected void fileUploader_FileReceived(object sender, com.flajaxian.FileReceivedEventArgs e)
            Model.PhyleLogic myPhyleLogic = new Model.PhyleLogic();
            int imgLength = e.File.ContentLength;
            string sExtension = System.IO.Path.GetExtension(e.File.FileName).ToLower();

            // Create a byte to hold the data and give it the length
            byte[] imgBinaryData = new byte[imgLength];
            e.File.InputStream.Read(imgBinaryData, 0, imgLength); // Read it into a stream (int)

            myPhyleLogic.FileName = e.File.FileName.ToLower();
            myPhyleLogic.FileContentType = "application/" + sExtension;
            myPhyleLogic.FileContent = imgBinaryData;

            int newFileId = myPhyleLogic.Insert();// new record ID number



PhyleLogic is the name of the class I created for the database interaction.  Sounded like fun on a Thursday :p

Data Table has only four columns; FileId, FileName, FileContentType, FileContent  Pretty simple.  

I hope this helps.
