fileexplorer
Add the AJAX FileExplorer to the MVC Controls Toolset with additonal built-in features I would like to see:
1. Support for UNC paths so that the root folder may be located in a network share as opposed to a folder under the application folder.
2. Support for sub-pathing so that it can be dynamically programmed to support direct display of target folder without having to navigate to the target folder
3. Built-in Delete function to complement the built-in Upload function
4. Optionally select display of a checkbox column to allow for multiple selection for items to be Deleted or Downloaded
5. Built-in Progress Bar for Upload and Download functions
6. Optionally select automatic filtering of hidden files and directories from the display

Hi Jerome,

I see your point. This really sounds like a reasonable feature. Although, this might be possible (with some custom code and template mechanism), wouldn't it be more suitable this meta to be fetched along with the file's meta?

For example, if you have the FileManager bound to a backend service that serves the files, the same service to merge the meta you need with the file's meta on the server and then have the FileManager render all the meta data you need in a details view. That, in my opinion, will prevent some additional requests to the server.

Thanks  @Ianko!

A good feature separation would be if your file manager control would allow customizable detail columns (beyond the normal filename, create/modified dates, file size, etc.) and allow a "Read" event that calls back to a user developed api to augment the metadata for the file. 

For Example, we have QA double check our drawing files (AutoCAD DWG) and we keep a record of this in a sql database.  If I could call back to that via an ajaxy rest api and add a column to show who verified a drawing and when - displaying the name and date in 2 additional columns for every file in a folder..... perfect.

Currently the Gleamtech control cant do that.

Hi Jerome,

We have a FileManager component on its way that is in our to-do list for the upcoming release. It will be also released for the MVC and Core suites as well.

I would like to see this in Kendo (and by extension in the MVC and Core control sets)... I'm currently looking to use another product from Gleamtech (https://demos.gleamtech.com/fileultimate/AspNetMvcCS/ or https://demos.gleamtech.com/fileultimate/AspNetCoreCS/) that seems to work very nicely, but would like to have the same API's and CSS configuration options as the majority of the other controls I use in my applications...rather than this one outlier...

A standalone file-browser / file-manager / file-explorer (or whatever it's called) should be prioritized now regardless of number of votes; it really is a basic tool that should be part of any UI controls library

Moving to MVC from WebForms and I'm stuck as to how to have a standalone image / file browser as I could in WebForms using Telerik's library for that.  Please give us this same ability in MVC land!

This is important to us as well, functionality is seriously lacking - we've also noticed folders can't be renamed. Items like this really need to be standalone to be effective, rather than workarounds within the confines of the Editor.

This widget seems to have been "under consideration" for a very long time.
