WebFileManager4D – A new remote file management code library, Tom DeMeo, Waltham Software
A lot of 4D applications build in the functionality to interact with and manage external documents and files which are kept on the server. Providing a quality interface to do this can be surprisingly difficult and time consuming. WebFileManager4D is a code library that can be installed and configured in minutes, and can provide a clean, familiar file explorer type interface for managing documents.
The library gives the programmer full control over what directories the user can access. It can be deployed using any 4D based web server, or it can be used in a web area in a client server application without a web server.
The interface is based on a complex widget set developed by Webix, a popular HTML UIX framework vendor.
An alpha version demo of the library is available here:
