The ASPxFileManager toolbar can display the following elements.

Expanded Default Toolbar Items

Expanded Custom Toolbar Items

In addition to default toolbar items, ASPxFileManager provides the capability to display custom items of the following types.

When a custom item is clicked, the ASPxClientFileManager.CustomCommand event is raised allowing you to perform custom actions. You can use the event argument's ASPxClientFileManagerCustomCommandEventArgs.commandName parameter to identify a clicked button by its command name (FileManagerToolbarCustomButton.CommandName).


The code sample below demonstrates how to implement two custom toolbar buttons. The complete sample is available in the DevExpress online demo File Manager - Custom Toolbar.

When a toolbar is about to be updated, e.g., when an active area is changed, the ASPxClientFileManager.ToolbarUpdating event is raised. The event allows you to change toolbar item availability. You can determine the currently active area using the event argument's ASPxClientFileManagerToolbarUpdatingEventArgs.activeAreaName property. To access a particular toolbar item, use the ASPxClientFileManager.GetToolbarItemByCommandName method.


The complete sample is available in the DevExpress online demo File Manager - Custom Toolbar
