    I'm using the DBContentProvider example to provide an fileexplorer interface for our database-hosted file repository.  However, one thing I'd like to implement is an additional level of hierarchy on the file level, to indicate the different versions of a file.   In our file repository, all files are versioned and so we would like to provide a way for the user to see all the versions of a file within the file explorer interface.  Perhaps there would be a way to customize the interface to provide a way to view and download the versions of each file.  Failing that, perhaps it could be implemented using some kind of mouseover pop-up?

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Tim,

    In your case you can create a folder that contains the earlier versions of the files. For example you can name the folder "Archives" and create copies of the desired files in that folder. Also you can create folders inside the "Archives" folder and name them by using the current date. For example: "1.6.2010".
    Please note that the implementation of this scenario is a common programming task and you need to implement it yourself.

    I hope the information helps.

    Best wishes,
