FileManager - Dialog manipulation

Is there any way to manipulate the pop-up dialogs on the file manager?

Specifically, I'm looking to move the validation text from the Rename dialog to appear as hover text on the header of the dialog instead of below the input (see attached renameDialog.png).

I've looked through the fileManager documentation and it doesn't seem like there's a way to get these dialogs as objects.

Hi Peter, 
Good day to you. 
Currently, we are not providing the option to get the Rename Dialog contents and modify it in FileManager component. So, we have planned to provide event for get the Rename Dialog contents and modify. You can use this event to get the Rename dialog content and based on your requirement to customize it in application level. We will consider this feature request on our Vol 3,2019 release which is expected to roll out on Sep 2019. Please be patience until then.

Thank you for the quick response! Will there be any plans to add other dialogs (New Folder dialog, error dialogs) to an event?

Hi Peter, 
Currently, we have planned to provide a generic event for below mentioned actions dialog customization. 
a.     New Folder

Once the support will be included, you can utilize that event to customize the dialog content in your application level based on provided event arguments. You can use the below feedback portal link to track the status of this feature.
