File Container

The File Container (File List) is the area within a file manager that contains files. The file list can work in one of two modes: detail and thumbnail. The mode can be specified via the FileManagerSettingsFileList.View (via the FileManagerSettings.SettingsFileList.View) property.

Expanded Thumbnail View

Expanded Detail View

The element's appearance style can be specified via the FileManagerStyles.FileContainer (via the FileManagerSettings.Styles.FileContainer) property.

The behavior and appearance of files within a container can be specified via the FileManagerSettings.SettingsFileList property.


If the FileManagerSettings.AllowedFileExtensions (via the FileManagerSettings.Settings.AllowedFileExtensions) property is specified, only files that have extensions allowed by this property are displayed within the file container.
