Hello,

I am trying to figure out why the upload and delete buttons appear disabled(greyed out) on my FileExplorer. I am using a custom file content provider.I have set up the upload and delete paths in the code behind. I have also enabled the viewstate. Can someone please advise as to what else needs to be set for the buttons to be enabled.

Thanks.

Hi Burbank!

I just had the same problem. Now it works like a charm!

I'm also use the content provider to filter some filetypes out like .skin-files.
My problem with upload/delete was that my delete- and uploadpaths was wrong. Can you share some code?

Here's some of mine:

string[] applicationName = new string[] { this.ResolveUrl("~/App_Themes/Standard/") }; 
string[] allowedUploadPaths = new string[] { "~/App_Themes/Standard/css/", "~/App_Themes/Standard/images/" }; 
string[] allowedDeletePaths = GetAllowedDeletePaths(); 
 
rfeFileExplorer.Configuration.ViewPaths = applicationName
rfeFileExplorer.Configuration.DeletePaths = allowedDeletePaths
rfeFileExplorer.Configuration.UploadPaths = allowedUploadPaths

This way I see all content of App_Themes/Standard (applicationName) in my FileExplorer.
Create folder and upload are enabled in App_Themes/css and /images (allowedUploadPaths).
Finally the GetAllowedDeletePaths method returns an array of all contents (just folders) in /css and /images (i.e "~App_Themes/Standard/css/layout", "~App_Themes/Standard/images/buttons"). This is because I dont want the delete-button to be enabled so that I can delete whole css or images folder, just it's content folders.

I hope this was to some help!

Regards

Christian Persson

Hello Burbank,


You can set different permission to a folder by passing the desired permission to the constructor of the DirectoryItem. For instance, you can give a folder Delete permission by using this constructor:
Copy Code
Copy Code
DirectoryItem directoryWithReadAndDeletePermissions =
new DirectoryItem(foldername, foldername, fullpath, string.Empty, PathPermissions.Read | PathPermissions.Delete, new FileItem[0], new DirectoryItem[0]);

In addition, I recommend you to override the CheckWritePermissions and CheckDeletePermissions (if exist) methods as well.

Kind regards,
