jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful and optimized framework, platform-independent, and widely supported. The jqxFileUpload is a widget that can be used to select files and upload them to a server. It also supports automatic upload and multiple files upload.

$('#jqxFileUpload').jqxFileUpload('uploadFile', 0);
