Custom Webpart to be created

  Asked By: Palash    Date: Aug 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 878

I want to develop a custom Webpart. The functionality is as follows:

1. I want to show the filesystem folder structure (drive->directroy-
>files) in my webpart. It will be like initially the drives will be
shown c: D: etc, when i click on any of these their inner contents
should be revealed, and i can proceed inside as i do using my windows

2. I need to develop an understanding of how to make the folders appear
as links etc..

Any pointers, material/links will be appreciated

Are you looking to do anything other than what you describe, and what filesystem
(server or client)? Have you considered using the OOTB Page Viewer web part and
pointing to the UNC path of the folder?

Yeah i have seen the OOTB Page Viewer web part (pointed to UNC Folder
Path). It however doesnt allow you to go to the parent directory.

I wanted to start with this approach and later extend it to reading
and displaying/managing folder  structure of other Content Stores /
Management Systems. Thats the reason i dont want to go for the Page
Viewer WebPart
