Creating a File Management System with File Genie - part 2
Enhance the options of the simple File Management System
In this article Patrick will show you how to enhance the options of the simple File Management System that was created in the article Creating a File Management System with File Genie – part 1. First he will show you how to give the File Management System the Explorer-style, that could be seen in the first article. Next he will hide the Quick-Add form, when no folder has been selected. After that the header will be edited, in such a way that the name of the selected folder will appear in the header of the File List.
To end this article Patrick will walk you through a couple of steps to enable sorting of all columns.
Why enhance the File Management System?
In the article Creating a File Management System with File Genie – part 1 a very basic File Management System was built with the options to show folders, files in folders, deleting files and quickly adding files. There are all kinds of enhancements to improve the File Management System and build it into a fully functional one page system for File Management.
An example of the File Management System with more advanced features added is shown below. Follow this tutorial and all future tutorials to create this File Management System.
Note: This tutorial uses the ASP versions of File Genie and Pure Upload. You should be able to get the same result with File Genie PHP and PHP Pure Upload. Only the hand coding has to be figured out!
Patrick started developing websites at the age of 25, only using HTML and building simple websites. Through the years his passion for designing and developing grew, and his career moved in that direction in the year 2004, when he decided to try and get a job in ICT and Web Development.
He got this chance at WE ICT, based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. For the first couple of years he combined network management for customers with creating database-driven websites in ASP. Since 2008 his main work is on the developing part.
While ASP is still his favorite language, he's slowly trying to dive into ASP.NET and discover all of the possibilities.
