Property Value

Type: Number

The maximum size (in bytes) of all files selected for upload. If the value is 0, then there is no limit.


When you set the value that is more than 2 Gb, it is recommended to pass such value as a string.

Default value is 0.



Only original file sizes are taken into account. Size of converted files and other auxiliary data is disregarded. So this property is useful when you upload original files without applying any client-side file transformations.
