Binding to Folder

To bind the FileManager extension to a physical file system, pass the path to the root folder to the FileManagerExtension.BindToFolder property as a parameter.

The code sample below demonstrates how to add a FileManager to a project, and then bind it to a folder.

using System.Web.Mvc;
using DevExpress.Web.Mvc;

namespace MyApplication.Controllers
{
    public class HomeController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }

        [ValidateInput(false)]
        public ActionResult FileManagerPartial()
        {
            return PartialView("_FileManagerPartial", @"~\Content\Files");
        }
    }
}
@using (Html.BeginForm())
{
    @Html.Action("FileManagerPartial")
}
@model string

@Html.DevExpress().FileManager(settings =>
{
    settings.Name = "FileManager";
    settings.CallbackRouteValues = new { Controller = "Home", Action = "FileManagerPartial" };
    //...
}).BindToFolder(Model).GetHtml()

The code result is demonstrated in the image below.
