Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to AllowMove
ASP.NET MVC Extensions FileManagerSettings
.SettingsEditing .AllowMove
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls ASPxFileManager
.SettingsEditing .AllowMove


Use the AllowMove property to control whether an item can be moved.

An end-user can move a file manager item using the toolbar move button or context menu Move item, whose availability depends on the AllowMove property value.

Toolbar Move Button

The move button is displayed in the toolbox if the FileManagerSettingsToolbar.Items collection contains an object of the FileManagerToolbarMoveButton type. In this case, the AllowMove property specifies the button’s availability.

When the FileManagerSettingsToolbar.Items collection is empty, the AllowMove property specifies the create button visibility.

Context Menu Move Item

The move item is displayed in the context menu if the FileManagerSettingsContextMenu.Items collection contains an object of the FileManagerToolbarMoveButton type, or if the FileManagerSettingsContextMenu.Items collection is empty. The AllowMove property specifies the item availability.

    <SettingsEditing AllowCreate="true" AllowDelete="true" AllowMove="true" AllowRename="true"
