FileManager no proper error handling

Creating a new folder

  1. Run sample at   (cloned from , but there's no back-end error there )
  2. Add new folder
  3. Backend returns error (because the relative URLs throw a 404 error there)
  4. Result:
    1. Actual: a new folder is seen in the right pane (regardless if list or grid) but not in the TreeView in the left pane
    2. Expected: state should be consistent between both panes.

Deleting a folder

Fails silently. The folder disappears from both views.

Renaming a folder

The renamed folder is shown as renamed in the TreeView, but the ListView or GridView hangs.

If I'm doing something wrong, an example of proper back-end error handling would be helpful.

Hi Anna,

There cannot be a general error handling as the error handling would depend on the server-side implementation. The FileManager exposes the error event for the developers to handle and show specific errors to the client. You can see in that dojo: Also, if you have a particular messages from the server endpoint, you can get it via the event arguments so that the errors are more descriptive.
