Persist user ui settings

Thread ID:

Is there an option to persist settings per user? For example when a user clicks the grid view instead of the large icons that every instance of the file explorer will be showing the gridview...

Hi Wouter, 
Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.  
We have analyzed your reported requirement “Persist user intractable UI settings in FileExplorer” and you can achieve this,  by setting the “enablePersistence” as true. Please refer following code block to persist the user interactions of FileExplorer.  
Code block [JavaScript]: 
       isResponsive: true, 
       width: "100%", 
       minWidth: "150px", 
       fileTypes: "*.png, *.gif, *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.docx", 
       layout: "grid", 
       enablePersistence: true, 
       ajaxAction: "http://js.syncfusion.com/demos/ejServices/api/FileExplorer/FileOperations"                 
We have prepared a sample based on this and you can find the sample under the following location: 
Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Hi Wouter, 
Sorry for the inconvenience.  
Unfortunately, we didn’t provide this in help document. We will update the document in online on or before end of this month (December 2016).  We appreciate your patience until then.

I think its in the documentation now: https://help.syncfusion.com/api/js/ejfileexplorer#members:enablepersistence

Is it possible to customize the addToPersist array?

Hi Wouter, 
Yes, you can customize the “_addToPersist array as shown in below code block. Here you have to add this customization code after refereeing the “ej.web.all.min.js” file. 

<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ "></script> 
 //you can customize it as per your requirement 
 ej.FileExplorer.prototype._addToPersist= ["layout", "selectedFolder", "height", "width"]; 

We have prepared a sample based on that and you can get it from following location. 

Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Yep, that works, but it seems to me that this variable is meant to be private. Since this is outside the public api I guess this can be changed without notice in the changelogs?

Hi Wouter, 
For this customization, usually we suggest “_addToPersist” variable to all. Also we will add this API in our online documentation within five business days 2nd Feb, 2017. That help you to track the changelogs regarding the “_addToPersist” private API.
