|Problem with FileVista inside existing application |

Weaknesses: Error after deleting folder
Details: When you include the file manager in your application, then it goes wrong once you delete a folder. The reason is that IIS will restart the application each time you delete a folder. Hence, all session state is lost. You could use the state server, but not everybody has access to do so (to start the state server).
Another weakness I've found is that the folder tree is quite often completely refreshed without re-expanding.
Conslusion: there are better tools available on the internet.

|Rebuttal From Listing Owner: Actually you shouldn't use a subfolder under the application folder and use folders outside the application folder for security reasons anyway. Regarding the session restart issue, it's a feature of ASP.NET and not a bug of our product. ASP.NET will restart the AppDomain when you do a change under the application folder such as changing a .config file or deleting a subfolder. Our product allows you to point to physical (d:\files) or even network (\\server\share) paths along with relative and application-relative paths. So you should choose a folder such that ASP.NET session restart does not occur.
Only the subfolders are refreshed if a subfolder is effected by a file action, not the whole folder tree. If you examine "Windows Explorer" , you see that folder tree is not refreshed properly when you move folders around. It's still like this in Windows 7.
By the way, I highly recommend you to examine v1.9 which we released last week which includes many UI improvements. |
This control is simply amazing

||Strengths: Very good design, Flexible, Fast
Weaknesses: no comment
Details: I used this control in one of my projects for document management. It does not only allow you to view folder contents but it also allows you to upload and download files. You can instanly start to accept files from your site visitors by simply adding this control to a page, no additional code is required for handling upload. Other great thing about the control is that, it is very flexible, for instance you can define permissions for folders dynamically and it can be integrated with your existing membership and authentication system easily. Highly recommended.
