Upload file on click of a Kendo Button

We want to upload file on click of any kendo button or Kendo icon button.

We don't want the drag and drop feature in that. On click of a button, it will ask us to select a file and on click of OK, that file will be auto-update or thumbnail of that file shown besides to that button.

Hello Rutvik,

After a team discussion, we've decided to decline this feature as the requested enhancements are specific to this use case only and the implementation of such functionality should be in the hands of the developer.

However, we understand that sometimes the Upload/FileSelect component needs to be used as a single button (without the drag & drop area) and this looks like a nice enhancement to have. That is why I logged a feature request asking for 'compact' option, which will remove the drag and drop area, and added your vote to it.
