Hi,
I'm new to MonoX and am trying to figure out if it is going to work well for my purposes. One feature I do not see is a simple Document Management tool for the front-end. I just want to be able to show users a list of files in a folder that they can download. The user does not need to be able to upload, that will be handled by admins. I took a look at the web parts, and I see one for SN files, but I don't like the thumbnail view that doesn't show any filenames. Am I missing any other tools for showing and downloading documents?

Thanks!
Liz

Hi Liz,
The file gallery could actually show the file names, but it appears that you need something more simple than that. We will put together a simple part that reads all files from a specified folder and shows them in a templated (customizable) list and post it here.

That would be wonderful. If it could show the name, date added, and file type that would be perfect.

Hi Liz,

We have implemented that sample Web part. You have two attached files, DocumentDownload-Release.zip and DocumentDownload-Solution.zip.

1. To start use it you need to unzip the Release file into your MonoX root(Portal folder). That will add DocumentDownload.dll to your bin, create default template and default css(you need to copy css from DocumentDownload.css to your own css file).

2. This sample is set to work with default theme so the page that will show that module needs to have theme set to default.(It can be changed, let us know if you need to use some other theme)

3. In Web.config file you need to add path for your module in order to use MonoX drag & drop feature.

<!-- path where all Web parts are stored (Comma separated values) -->
<add key="ModuleGalleryPath" value="/MonoX/ModuleGallery, /MonoX/Samples/WebPartSample, /YourFolderWhichContainSampleModule" />

4. Open the page that holds Document download module, log in as an admin, go to DocumentModule properties and there you can set the file extension and folder from which the module will read the files.

Second approach would be to use DocumentDownload-Solution.zip file and add it to your project, so let us know if you want to use that approach.

Regards

One thing that I forgot to mention is that you also need to add DocumentDownload.dll to your references in Visual Studio and please note that Web.config path should have a tilda sign "~" before folder name, below is an example:

<add key="ModuleGalleryPath" value="/MonoX/ModuleGallery, /MonoX/Samples/WebPartSample, /YourFolderWhichContainSampleModule" />
