    Hi I am using a custom Content Provider using a SQL database and have had great success but..

    Is there a way to intercept and change the Directory Names before end user presentation?
    A typical path in my system looks like: Root\Objects\ObjectType (14)\Object (14.52)\

    I want to show Root\Objects\Practitioners\John Doe\

    I have no problem doing the translation but I need to do it at Runtime and not store it that way otherwise if John Doe changed his name my directory association would be lost.

    Hello Marc,

    Your requirement is a custom solution that depends on the logic of the application and it is not related to  RadFileExplorer. Please note that (if you decide to implement it) you will need to make modifications in the logic of DBContentProvider in order to achieve the desired result.

    In your case I suggest you check the implemented provider in this KB article where the real paths (like C:\Folder1\Flder2) are hidden and replaced by custom defined paths. You can use a similar approach in your case.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
