File Container

The File Container (File List) is the area within a file manager that contains files. The File Container can display folders and the parent folder element based on the FileManagerSettingsFileList.ShowFolders and FileManagerSettingsFileList.ShowParentFolder property values.

The file list can work in one of two modes: detail and thumbnail. The mode can be specified by the FileManagerSettingsFileList.View property.

Thumbnail View

ASPxFileManager - File Container

Detail View

ASPxFileManager - File2

The element's appearance style can be specified by the FileManagerStyles.FileContainer property.

Behavior and appearance of files within a container can be specified by the ASPxFileManager.SettingsFileList property.


If the FileManagerSettings.AllowedFileExtensions property is specified, only files that have extensions allowed by this property are displayed within the file container.
