The following code snippets illustrates how to specify the CustomFileSystemProvider property:

  • In markup:

    <dx:ASPxFileManager ID="ASPxFileManager1" runat="server" 
         CustomFileSystemProviderTypeName="LinqFileSystemProvider" >
  • In code (on the Page_Init event):

    public partial class FileManager_CustomFilterAPI : System.Web.UI.Page {
        protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e) {
            FileManager.CustomFileSystemProvider = new CustomFileSystemProvider(FileManager.Settings.RootFolder);
