Hi Madan,

Greetings from syncfusion support.

From the shared details, we understand that you want to get the file path while selecting files in the FileManager component. We have prepared a simple sample of the ASP.NET MVC FileManager component and got the path of the selected files using the FileManager FileSelect event. To achieve your requirement, we suggest you use the below code snippet in the FileManager FileSelect event. We have attached the prepared sample for your reference.

Refer to the below code snippet.



        <!-- Declare filemanager element -->

        @Html.EJS().FileManager("filemanager").AjaxSettings(new Syncfusion.EJ2.FileManager.FileManagerAjaxSettings




        <!-- end of filemanager element -->




    function onFileSelection(args) {

      //Here you can get the path of selected file

Also, we have attached the documentation of the user interface which explains the FileManager operation for your reference.
