    I have a problem where I need to change the folder names to a useful name instead of a number.
    Our folder tree consists of just a folder within the project named "/files".

    But the folder names inside are just numbers related to userID, emailID, and so forth. (ex. /files/530-001)
    Is there a way to change/mask the name of a folder to something useful like a real name?
    Just need a little help in the right direction.
    If I can change just one 530-001 - I can figure out rest.

    Thank you

    Hi Ronald,

    In order to change the name of the files and / or folders displayed in the file explorer, you need to subclass the RadFileExplorer's content provider and override the ResolveDirectory() / ResolveRootDirectoryAsTree() and change the Name property of the FileItem / DirectoryItem that is returned by the method.

    Please review the following help article for more detailed information regarding the RadFileExplorer's content provider:
