Pointing to a folder in the virtual file system


We are creating a simple template which will list all documents contained in a folder in the virtual file system. What is the best way to  allow editors to point to a folder in EPiServers virtual file system? We haven’t found any controls that allows pointing to folders…only to files. 

All recommendations will be appreciated

There is no folder property shipping with EPiServer so you need to create your own custom property. In this case it is pretty simple since the file browser dialog in EPiServer actually has a folder picking mode built in already!

If you like I can send you the code for a Folder property, just send me an email at henrik dot nystrom at intergen dot co dot nz.

If it is of interest for more people I could write a blog post with the code, describing how to create it. The code is just a little bit to big to post in here.

Hi there,

Thats what I figured. Kind of strange though that there is no folder property Undecided A blog post sounds like a good idea. Will drop you an email anyway. Cheers!

You can find such a property on EPiCode:
