The File Manager is a graphical user interface component for managing the file system that allows users to perform most common file operations like accessing, editing, and sorting files or folders. This component also provides easy navigation for browsing folders to select a file or folder from the file system.
The file manager UI consists of toolbar, navigation pane, and content pane sections through which the files or folders in the file system can be accessed and managed. The complete layout can be customized with features like like right-to-left alignment, enabling or disabling the toolbar and navigation pane, and switching between views.
The toolbar contains the list of tools for performing various operations like file upload or download and view switching. The toolbar can also be configured to add any custom functionality to be performed with the file system.
The navigation pane allows the quick and direct access to a file or folder in a file system where the entire folder hierarchy is listed using a tree view. This can be made visible or hidden as needed..
The content pane displays the files and folders in the file system. The files in the content pane can be displayed in either large icons view or details view.
The File Manager control includes all common file handling mechanisms like upload, download, edit, create, delete, and sort.
The File Manager control allows the easy uploading and downloading of files in a file system.
Files and folders in the file system can be sorted in either ascending or descending order simply by clicking the column header. Files and folders can be sorted based on name, date created, size, etc.
The File Manager control contains built-in searching functionality that allows you to search for and access a file or folder in the current path and its child folders.
The File Manager control has built-in support for the selection of multiple files or folders. Multiple-file selection will be effective when a single operation like download or delete is performed over multiple files in the file system.
The File Manager control has context-menu support to list the operations to be performed with the files and folders. It appears when a file or folder is right-clicked. The context menu items can be customized according to user preference.
The text of a context-menu list and tooltips being displayed in the user interface can be localized to any desired language. The File Manager control uses a localization library (l10) to localize the text values.
ASP.NET MVC File Manager layout supports several built-in themes: Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), and high contrast. Users can customize any one of these built-in themes or create new themes to achieve their own desired look by either simply overriding the SASS variables or using our Theme Studio application.
Developers have control over all the UI elements and behaviors of the components to provide the best experience to end users with a rich set of developer-friendly APIs.
