Upload image from Silverlight to ASP .net MVC 2.0 Action

Upload image from Silverlight to ASP .net MVC 2.0 Action

I have been trying really hard to Upload a photo from a Silverlight app to ASP .net MVC app.

I simply use WebClient like this in Silverlight :

private bool UploadFile(string fileName, Stream data)     {         try         {             UriBuilder ub = new UriBuilder("http://localhost:59933/Admin/Upload");             ub.Query = string.Format("filename={0}", fileName);              WebClient wc = new WebClient();              wc.OpenReadCompleted += (sender, e) =>             {                 PushData(data, e.Result);                 e.Result.Close();                 data.Close();             };              wc.OpenWriteAsync(ub.Uri);         }         catch (Exception)         {             throw;         }          return true;     }       private void PushData(Stream input, Stream output)     {         byte[] buffer = new byte[4096];         int byteRead;          while ((byteRead = input.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)) != 0)         {             output.Write(buffer, 0, byteRead);         }      } 

On the other hand I have created a simple action called Upload like this:

    [AcceptVerbs(HttpVerbs.Post)]     public ActionResult Upload()     {          //Some code here     } 

The problem is that it doesn't hit the break point in Upload method.

Is this even possible ? The reason why I am using Silverlight is that I want to preview the image before uploading it to server and it is very simple in Silverlight.

I failed to do that in JavaScript and that is why Silverlight might be more useful here.
