    We are using the FileExplorer as part of a document managment system and a client requirement is that documents should show a 'friendly name'. E.g. document1.doc should be shown to the end user as 'Policy 1'. I have written my own file system provider and have been able to add 'friendly name' as an extra column (friendly name is stored in an SQL server database with other document properties).

    Is is possible to override the 'Filename' column text with the friendly name from the database (so I can keep the icon and sub folder links) in the first column of the grid?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello Glen,

    In your case I recommend you to add a new column to the grid, next to the Filename column and set the Filename column to be invisible. I recommend you to hide the column by setting its Display property to false:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        RadFileExplorer1.Grid.Columns[0].Display = false;

    I hope this helps.
