  • Overview 

    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC FileManager is an Explorer-like component which enables you to manage files and folders. This control offers all operations you would expect from it—uploading, deleting or moving files, as well as creating, deleting or copying folders. This powerful component gives you features like Drag and Drop, Sorting, Filtering and built-in DataSource configuration. 
  • Built-in DataSource Configuration

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

  • Views

    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC FileManager provides two inbuilt views for content visualization which can be switched from the Toolbar button group:
  • Sorting & Filtering

    Sorting and filtering are also available as features in the FileManager component. Sorting can be accessed through a dropdown menu in the toolbar and by clicking the header of the columns in grid view.  


    Filtering can be accessed from a button in the toolbar which opens a pop-up window. The fields will depend on the metadata of files. For the date fields a set of predefined selectors will be provided and on "Custom" a DateRangePicker will be available. 

  • The impeccable navigation of the FileManager component is achieved by combining two Telerik UI components - TreeView and Breadcrumb.

  • Toolbar Commands

    The MVC FileManager comes with a built-in Toolbar with a predefined set of tools. You can decide to show or hide them depending on your application's needs. 

  • The MVC FileManager comes with a search functionality, allowing you to type in the name of the file you are looking for and locate it in no time. 
  • Drag and Drop

    The ASP.NET MVC FileManager component also allows you to manipulate the files with drag and drop. This provides you with an easy way to move files in folders in a seamless manner.
  • Preview Pane

    The MVC FileManager comes with a preview pane used to show additional information about the selected files or folders. You can toggle its visibility with the Switch Tool in the File Manager Toolbar. By default, the PreviewPane shows information about the thumbnail, file extension, file size, date created and date modified.
  • Context Menu

    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC FileManager's ContextMenu lets you execute commands on the selected file or folder. By default, the commands you can execute are Delete or Rename, but you can define your own custom commands.
