Array

The Array file provider works with a virtual file system represented by an in-memory array of JSON objects.

Export: default
Type:

Object

Assign the array to the data option. Data object fields should have conventional names listed in the data description. Otherwise, specify [fieldName]Expr options: nameExpr, sizeExpr, dateModifiedExpr, and so on.

The following code shows how to bind the FileManager to the Array file provider:

jQuery
index.js
$(function() {
    $("#fileManagerContainer").dxFileManager({
        fileProvider: new DevExpress.FileProviders.Array({
            data: [ 
                // ...
                // Data objects that represent files and directories
                // ...
            ],
            thumbnailExpr: "icon",
            // ...
        })
        // A shortcut that can be used if object fields have conventional names
        fileProvider: [ 
            // ...
            // Data objects that represent files and directories
            // ...
        ]
    });
});
