File Manager

  • 2 minutes to read

ASPxFileManager is an Explorer-like control that allows users to manage files and folders. Users can upload and select files, and even change the folder structure (for example, rename, copy, move, and delete files or folders). File and folder management capabilities are 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 a 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 users edit items, handle errors that occur when they edit items, and respond when they change or open a selected file.
  • You can use our client-side API to obtain the selected file, get the current folder path, get the full file name, and refresh all pages.
