Spreadsheet Ribbon UI
Users can select commands on the File ribbon tab to manage documents.
If ASPxSpreadsheet works with documents in a file system, specify the WorkDirectory property to make the Open and Save As operations available. Users cannot access the file system outside the specified directory.
<dx:ASPxSpreadsheet ID="ASPxSpreadsheet1" runat="server" WorkDirectory="~/App_Data/WorkDirectory"> </dx:ASPxSpreadsheet>
If you use a custom document storage that is not based on a file system, the WorkDirectory and built-in document management ribbon commands have no effect. Hide the built-in ribbon’s File tab and implement a custom UI to open and save documents.
Restrict User Operations
The ASPxSpreadsheet control allows you to restrict document management operations available to users. Use Spreadsheet behavior settings to enable, disable, or hide each operation.
<dx:ASPxSpreadsheet ID="ASPxSpreadsheet1" runat="server" WorkDirectory="~/App_Data/WorkDirectory"> <Settings> <Behavior CreateNew="Disabled" Open="Disabled" Save="Hidden" SaveAs="Enabled" /> </Settings> </dx:ASPxSpreadsheet>
