As soon as I'm trying to upload a file which exceeds the php max upload file size and max post data the uploadprogress_get_info function doesn't return any data. Uploadprogress also doesn't create the file in /tmp. I couldn't find any code in uploadprogress which could cause this behaviour. So I'm not absolutely sure if it's a bug in uploadprogress but it would be great if somebody could take a look at it.

Does it return no data, if it's still below the max file size?  
and stop return when it's over the limit? Or just right from 
the start?

Right from the start.

Here's my analysis

If the total file size exceeds post_max_size, PHP aborts the 
upload before the extension even comes into play and the 
extension is therefore never informed. Nothing I can change 
about that.

If the total file size is smaller than post_max_size but 
larger than upload_max_filesize you could inform the user 
during the upload, that his file is too large and he should 
abort, but we shouldn't abort the upload per se, since there 
may be another file coming, which isn't too large (and as 
far as I know, we can't abort the upload totally, we just 
can abort the internal process, the enduser still has to 
wait until it's uploaded)

I try to update the example, but there's currently not more 
I can fix in the extension
