Custom File System Provider

ASPxFileManager allows you to implement your own custom file system provider.

To create your own custom provider, follow the steps below.

  1. Create your own provider class inheriting it from the base FileSystemProviderBase class or from one of its ancestors.

  2. Provide implementation for the required virtual methods in your class. If you inherit from FileSystemProviderBase, the implementation of the following methods is essential.

    Note that you don't need to override all the methods if you descend from another predefined provider.

  3. Assign your provider class to ASPxFileManager by using either the ASPxFileManager.CustomFileSystemProvider or ASPxFileManager.CustomFileSystemProviderTypeName property.


    Programmatically (on the Page_Init event):

  4. Set the ASPxFileManager.ProviderType property to Custom to ASPxFileManager uses the custom provider.
