Property Value

Type Description

A String value that that specifies the name of the required data source field.


ASPxFileManager allows you to visualize file system data that is available in a database (for more information, see the Physical File System Provider topic). In this case, the NameFieldName property is used to specify the name of the data source field that provides unique item identifier names.

The NameFieldName property synchronizes its value with the file manager’s FileManagerSettingsDataSource.NameFieldName property.

Note that specifying the following fieldname properties is essential: FileManagerSettingsDataSource.KeyFieldName, FileManagerSettingsDataSource.ParentKeyFieldName, FileManagerSettingsDataSource.NameFieldName, and FileManagerSettingsDataSource.IsFolderFieldName. The FileManagerSettingsDataSource.FileBinaryContentFieldName and FileManagerSettingsDataSource.LastWriteTimeFieldName property can be specified optionally.
