Implement a mechanism that allows the content of a folder to be refreshed every time it is opened. Currently, on opening a folder a request to the "read" end point is sent and the content of the folder is loaded. But on subsequent opening of the same folder the FileManager does not send further requests. If there have been changes to the folder's structure, they won't be reflected in the FileManager, because it doesn't refresh the data. An auto-refresh functionality could resolve that.
A configuration option could allow enabling/disabling this functionality, e.g.,
The built-in upload components event cannot be handled through the TagHelper:
<kendo-filemanager name="filemanager"> <upload on-upload="onUpload"></upload> ... </kendo-filemanager>
The FileManager component makes the assumption that all files and directories can be uniquely adressed by name and path.
Unfortunately, this isn't true in many cases: identifying a specific file could require additional information (like database record ID or namespace) that cannot be provided globally for the page and therefore needs to be stored individually with each file entry inside the client's datamodel.
(In my case, different entities in the database have their own "virtual storage" where files are references as items stored in a cloud block storage service. This means that I can several files with the same name and path (but diffreent content) referenced in the database or even several files with the same name and folder linked to the same entity).
After trying to use a richer object in the JSON returned to the FileManager Read action, I have come to the conclusiong (confirmed by support), that doing so will break the compnent (rename will not trigger any action on the server, update will cause a JS error inside the kendo libraries).
I would like to see a thumbnail of the image in the FileManager for images. Currently it shows an icon for images. In place of the image icon I would like to see a small thumbnail of the image.
