This demo illustrates how easily you can enable the ASPxFileManager to retrieve its content from a database.
With the ASPxFileManager you can visualize file system data that is available in a database. All you have to do is assign a data source connected to a database and map its fields to the ASPxFileManager via the SettingsDataSource options.
In this demo, the ASPxFileManager uses the XpoDataSource shipped with our eXpress Persistent Objects (XPO) to access file system data stored in an Access database table. To improve performance, file contents (painting images) are read using the "delayed loading" feature provided by XPO (see the Delayed attribute applied to the ArtsEntity.Data property).
