ASPxFileManager is an Explorer-like control that provides your end-users with the ability to manage files and folders. This control also allows end-users to easily upload and select files, and even change folder structure (by renaming, copying, moving and deleting files or folders). File and folder management capabilities are fully customizable and can be switched off if necessary.


This topic lists the main features of the ASPxFileManager control.

Control Features

AJAX Support

AJAX support is enabled when the ASPxFileManager.EnableCallBacks property is set to true. In this case, when an end-user clicks any folder, only the content is loaded onto the client using callbacks.

Client-Side Features

  • Client-side events allow you to perform custom actions before and after items are edited, handle errors that occur during editing, and respond to changing or opening a selected file.
  • You can use our client-side API to obtain a selected file, to get the current folder path, to get the full file name and to refresh all pages.
