This demo illustrates how you can enable the File Manager to retrieve its content from a database.
With the File Manager you can visualize file system data that is available in a database. All you have to do is to bind the file manager to a model via the BindToFileSystemProvider method. This method parameter is a data model object.
In this demo, the File Manager is bound to an object of the ArtsFileSystemProvider class, which is derived from the FileSystemProviderBase class and overrides its methods that implement file management operations, e.g. GetFiles, GetFolders, CreateFolder. (See the Model code)
