Hi,

I am trying to use your file explorer and add some metadata to each file. Kind of simple archive.

I have attached a screenshot.

When the user select a file the meta data should be displayed on the right side.

I have problems with posting back and find the selected file to display the metadata for.

Hi Ole,

You can also take  a look at the following demo demonstrating how to add custom attributes to the FileItems of RadFileExplorer and use this data in the Grid:

Hi,

The problem with that is that demo is that it only supports what you can fit into the grid. I need more, like description(multiple languages) and so. That's the reason I need a form, instead of columns in a grid.

Hi Ole,

Indeed in the demo context we are using the added custom attributes in order to create a new column with this data (fileItem.Attributes.Add("Owner", ownerName)), but you can freely access the same info through the fileitem's client object and use its value after that:
$find("RadFileExplorer1").get_grid().get_masterTableView().get_selectedItems()[0].get_dataItem().Attributes.Date

Of course, this was only a suggestion and you can use the already found solution in case it fits your scenario better.

Kind regards,
Vessy
