FileExplorer for Windows Phone – Test Feedback Needed
Jul 25, 2013
One minute read

I’ve added several changes to the FileExplorer control, that will be included in the Coding4Fun Toolkit.

Before actually becoming an active part of the control set, I want to make sure that it works as it should and where it should, and for that I am distributing it now as a part of an experimental package.

Storage Control

Since the last update, there is a big change that was introduced – the ability to switch the selection type. Now it is possible to:

  • Select a single file
  • Select multiple files
  • Select a single folder
  • Select multiple folders

This option is given through the SelectionMode property.

Control diagram

When the control is dismissed, the OnDismiss event handler is called, the application will get two items in return – a StorageTarget reference, that will identify the location of the selected entity(ies), as well as an object than can either be a single StorageFile, StorageFolder, ExternalStorageFile or ExternalStorageFolder, or it could be a List<T> where T is one of the aforementioned storage objects. Explicit conversion will be required, depending on the scenario.

Download the sample project here or directly from the CodePlex source control (latest checkin) and send me your feedback!
