Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Remarks

Use the AllowRename property to control whether items can be renamed.

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

Toolbar Rename Button

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

When the FileManagerSettingsToolbar.Items collection is empty, the AllowRename property specifies the rename button visibility.

Context Menu Rename Item

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

<dx:ASPxFileManager ID="fileManager" runat="server" >
    <SettingsEditing AllowCreate="true" AllowDelete="true" AllowMove="true" AllowRename="true" 
    AllowCopy="true" AllowDownload="true" />    
    ...
</dx:ASPxFileManager>

fm.SettingsEditing.AllowCreate = true;
fm.SettingsEditing.AllowDelete = true;
fm.SettingsEditing.AllowMove = true;
fm.SettingsEditing.AllowRename = true;
fm.SettingsEditing.AllowCopy = true;
