Validation

Fine Uploader's validation abilities allow integrators to strictly define what sorts of files can and can not be uploaded.

For each file, the validate event callback is invoked, allowing you to enforce your own custom rules. Then, Fine Uploader's built-in validators (defined in the options) execute. If you need access to more information (such as the actual file), you can declare a submit event callback handler instead. When submit is called, an ID is available for the file, and you can address it using any of the other API methods that require a file ID.

If the validation.stopOnFirstInvalidFile option is enabled, Fine Uploader will stop processing files once an invalid file has been encountered.

Fine Uploader's built-in validators allow you to limit based on file extension, number of files, file size, and image dimensions. See the validation option for more details about these built-in validators.

Validation on File Size

Size validation is available in File API browsers only. Size can be restricted via the sizeLimit or minSizeLimit options in the validation settings.

Image Validation

As of 4.1, the ability to restrict submitted images based on width and height is possible. See the validation.image option for specifics. Keep in mind that this feature was created with processed images in mind, and not images sent directly from a camera. Some browsers may natively report width and height swapped for JPEGs (from cameras) based on the orientation of the camera. Those uploading pictures directly from cameras have no control over the dimensions of the image, so it doesn't seem to make much sense to impose these restrictions if you expect your users to upload images directly via a camera. In that case, it likely makes more sense to allow the user to scale the image first (before submitting the file) or simply impose a file size restriction.

Also, this feature is dependant on the preview generation feature, and therefore is only supported in modern browsers. Check the browser support matrix or the qq.supportedFeatures.imageValidation flag for more specific information. If image dimension validation is important to your application, you will also need a server-side fallback to account for older browsers and TIFFs (if allowed, since TIFFs are only previewable in Safari).

Custom Validation Rules

You can further limit files using your own custom rules by including validation logic in a validate or validateBatch callback event handler. Your handlers can return false to reject the file or files outright. If you need to perform an async operation to determine if the file is valid, you can return a promise, and either resolve or reject the promise once the validity of the file is known. See the validate and validateBatch documentation for more details.
