    Dear all,

    I am writing an application to maintain Hierarchies within a database.
    I have used a treeview control with pretty good success but my users find the drag and drop facility a bit difficult to use because the Hierarchies can get quite big.
    Our latest Idea is to try and emulate the look and feel of Windows Explorer.
    This would require that I restrict the size of the TreeView and make some scroll bar(s) appear if it grows too much when expanded.

    Could someone give me an idea how I could do this?
    I could use something like an IFrame but I'd rather keep it all in the same frame...

    Many Thanks

    PS: my expertise is SQL Server so I am not entirely "fluent" in ASP.Net. Please forgive me if I missed something obvious!

    Hello Eric,

    There's the newly released FileExplorer component... doesn't it suit your needs?

    I saw the announcement but I (stupidly?) assumed it was to explore... file systems only!

    Yep, sounds like the perfect answer to me



    Thanks

    Where can I find help about creating my own FileBrowserContentProvider?

    Is there some "How To...?" somewhere?

    Of course, I can try to guess everything by looking at the example and the base class but some guidelines would be very welcome!

    For instance, I am not quite clear whether I must implement my own HTTP Handler as in the DBContentProvider?

    Please ignore my last post as I realise I am in the wrong forum...

    Will ask again in the FileExplorer forum
