    Hi

      Is it possible to display images from a specified list view in an ImageManager? By default it displays it from "All Items" list view.

    My configurationfor ConfigXML file is as follows

    <configuration>
     <property name="ImagesPaths">
       <item>/PublishingImages/</item>  
     </property>
     <property name="ImagesFilters">
       <item>*.jp*</item>
       <item>*.gif</item> 
       <item>*.png</item> 
     </property>

     <property name="DocumentsPaths">
       <item>/PDF/</item>  
     </property>

     <property name="DocumentsFilters">
       <item>*.pdf</item>  
     </property>

     <property name="Skin">Default2006</property> 

    </configuration> 
    i can specify the ImagePaths, Is there an way to specify some custom SharePoint property for a list view?


    regards

    Sohail

    Hello Sohail,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to specify a custom view in the editor's file browser dialogs. What you can try is to try using the default MOSS image picker, which is not part of our editor, but has a few different options in relation to file browsing. Open the editor's tools file and change the ImageManager tool name to MOSSImageManager. This will tell the editor not to use the built-in image dialog and to open the MOSS asset picker instead. It will allow you to select a custom view when browsing the SharePoint libraries in your site.

    Hi Lini
           Sorry for the late reply, Fair enough the MOSSImageManager does provide some flexibility to display approved Images. We have

    a requirement to display the approved PDF documents in a document library (not images).  Is it possible to use something for

    displaying the approved PDF documents?  I assume if we can customize the display of documents based on some field condition in

    future that will be a great option.

    Right now we move the approved items to another list and let the documentmanager and imagemanager to pick the items from there.

    But we many problems in managing it this way. 


    Thanks for your support

    Hi,

    The MOSSLinkManager editor tool also uses the asset picker dialog. Clicking the browse button will open the same dialog you saw in the MOSSImageManager tool. However, I don't think that there is a way to configure this dialog to show only PDF files, unless you define that in your custom view.
