  • Theming

    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core FileManager component has multiple built-in themes and swatches you can chose from. Explore the Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines), Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better) and Fluent (based on Microsoft Fluent UI) themes and choose the swatch that meets your design requirements. 

    If neither of the available themes and swatches satisfies your needs, you can easily customize them with a few lines of CSS or create new themes by using the Progress SASS ThemeBuilder application. 

  • Overview

    A personal favorite of the team due to the number of times it has been requested, the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core FileManager lets users browse through directories and files, akin to file managers like Windows Explorer, and manage file storage within their web applications. Use together with other controls like the Editor to select images or use as a standalone component to help users organize files or folders.

  • Sorting and filtering

    The FileManager features sorting and filtering to enhance the user experience. Access the sorting through a dropdown menu in the toolbar or click the header of the columns in grid view.  


    Filtering can similarly be accessed from the toolbar which would cause a popup window to open. The fields will differ depending on the metadata of files. For example, if the data metadata includes dates, a DateRangePicker will be available. 

  • Drag and Drop

    No file manager would be complete without drag and drop support and the ASP.NET Core FileManager is no exception. This provides you with an easy way to move files in folders in a seamless manner.
  • The navigation of the ASP.NET Core File Manager component is achieved with two inbuilt Telerik UI components - TreeView and Breacrumb.

  • Built-in DataSource Configuration

    The FileManager component allows integration with various back-end services. This way, you dictate the back-end operations and file handling.
