Okay, I'll try with show_metadata="onUpload" (to unroll all docs would 
be just a poor man's solution if nothing else worked), although it seems 
to me that server-side code handling this parameter will simply insert 
html code to signal to the client that whichever document has just been 
downloaded. Any further logic is preferably client-side as well, right?

In my eyes automatically unrolling metadata of the uploaded document 
seems worth making the default (then also positioning the file/url 
upload box below existing docs to avoid the need of scrolling up again 
and again if there are many uploads), that's why I asked/suggested :-).

Kind regards,
