Hi All,

I need to bind grid with a one more field like FileName and Size. Is it possible ?

I need to add a field with description name which is a provided by database table field and i want to add this field with Filename and Size.

I am using  DBContentProvider : FileBrowserContentProvider type provider.

Could you please help me ?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi Fiko,

Thanks for your quick response.
I have made a change in "GetChildFiles" method just add an attribute with my required field( In highlighted text). It is working fine.

Could you please guide me is it a right way to add an attribute to add a column?


 private FileItem[] GetChildFiles(string _path)
        {
            try
            {
                DataRow[] childRows = DataServer.GetChildFileRows(_path);
                List<FileItem> files = new List<FileItem>();

                for (int i = 0; i < childRows.Length; i++)
                {
                    DataRow childRow = childRows[i];
                    string name = childRow["Name"].ToString();
                    string WebDescription = Convert.ToString(childRow["WebDescription"]);
                    if (IsExtensionAllowed(System.IO.Path.GetExtension(name)))
                    {
                        string itemFullPath = CombinePath(_path, name);

                        FileItem newFileItem = new FileItem(name,
                                                            Path.GetExtension(name),
                                                            (int)childRow["Size"],
                                                            itemFullPath,
                                                            GetItemUrl(itemFullPath),
                                                            string.Empty,
                                                            GetPermissions(itemFullPath)
                                                            );

                        newFileItem.Attributes.Add("Webdescription", WebDescription);
                        files.Add(newFileItem);

                    }
                }
                return files.ToArray();
            }
            catch (Exception)
            {
                return new FileItem[] { };
            }
        }


Many thanks

with regards
Mahendra

Hi Mahendra,

The approach that you use is very similar to the one shown in the provided online demo and it should work without any problems. If you experience any difficulties implementing a custom column in the RadFileExplorer's Grid, however, I recommend you to recheck the provided Custom Grid Columns demo and modify your code to look like the one used in the demo.
