The DevExpress ASP.NET MVC File Manager (FileManager) supports template technology, allowing you to customize file and folder appearance and layout.
The look of the File Manager items (files and folders) displayed in the file area can be completely modified by creating a specific template, which defines how an element will be rendered by a client browser. The File Manager allows you to create templates for thumbnail view mode using the SetThumbnailViewItemTemplateContent method. Each template can consist of a group of HTML controls. Each HTML control used in a template can be bound to the property values of the rendered node.
In this demo, the SetThumbnailViewItemTemplateContent method is used to present additional information about files in a card view. The HighlightItemTemplate event is handled to highlight the search text, which is specified using the filter box, in templates.
