I'm a newbie to development especially in MVC and I need to implement this control in my project. So I downloaded the sample MVC project and trying to add it into my own project, but I'm unable to figure out, what the .tt files are about. Is it necessary to include them because I'm able to build my project successfully without them. But after uploading, the control doesn't go back to the post method. Can anybody help.

I'm referring to the files T4MVC.tt, T4MVC.tt.settings.t4 etc.. which I found in the MVC version of this project, which is available for download on the downloads page by the name SilverlightUploadingMVC.zip

The MVC project is from a user contribution. You can ignore the .tt files, it's probably the controller that handles the upload which you're interested in.

Ignoring didn't work so I had to include them and its finally uploading well but I'm not able to figure out what the files are for?? So if anybody can help I'll be really grateful.
