I've currently written code to have the client use alert() when the server responds with an error in the middle of uploading one of the files. This effectively pauses the uploads until the user clicks ok. Is this desired behaviour? I feel it might be preferable to have the icon next to the file indicate that there was a problem but let the upload continue (example attached). The problem with this method is that the error message is lost though I might be able to add some more code to have it appear in tooltip of the warning icon or something.

I would prefer the icon solution. However the error message should be made available through a click on the icon. Having it as the tooltip would be useful as well, but I would rather add both than just one of these methods.
^ Me too. I don't like relying on alert() or one of the other 3 internal js popups to stop some js code. The alert() is meant to alert the user, so it does make sense to alert if an upload goes wrong and then, if the user wants more info, just click the exclamation mark.
