"...is there a way to display these properties in additional grid columns..."
I believe that this online demo
will be of help.
I had a look at the demo and got it going when using the file explorer for files stored physical files (as in the demo). However, I would like to use this functionality while storing the files in a database.
I have a project where I use the DBContentProvider
and there are some additional database fields I would like to show in the grid of the file explorer. The example you referred to, extract information from the physical files, like date and owner. In the same way I would like to show data, but in this case, extracted from the database row where the rest of the file information is stored.
In my project I added a context menu for "Properties", so after uploading a file to the explorer, I can right click on the file and find the "Properties" item in the context menu. This takes me to a form where I can add additional information like a description, author etc. and when subitted, stored in the same database row as the file content itself.
I would like this information, e.g. the description, to display in the grid of the file explorer as well.
Any ideas as to how this can be achieved?
