Is it possible to run the SfFileManager in Maui Blazor hybrid app? All the example seem to be for Blazor ASP.NET implementations.

Hi Mike,

Greetings from Syncfusion support.

Yes, it is possible to use the SfFileManager component in the Maui Blazor application. To achieve your requirement, you just need to follow the steps mentioned in the documentation that we've provided below.

Documentation: https://blazor.syncfusion.com/documentation/getting-started/maui-blazor-app

We've also provided additional resources to assist you in implementing the SfFileManager component and a document that contains the available service providers in the FileManager for your reference.

I can add the component, but all of the examples and documentation for the for the controller and file service providers assume a Blazor server environment. How do you port these to a MAUI Hybrid serverless application?

More specifically, I want to use the control in a desktop application based on Maui Hybrid implementation of Blazor. Is that possible?   Windows and MacOS…

Mike, As explained earlier, we have support for integrating our Blazor FileManager component in a MAUI app with a Blazor server environment, but currently, we do not have the feasibility to fulfill your requirement.

Please let us know if you have any other concerns.
