Is it possible to implement Custom File Manager / File Picker?

Hi guys,


Is it possible to make a custom File Manager / File Picker instead of a native one (for both Android and iOS)?


I have some specific needs for the custom File Manager. But I don't know if we have full control of the native file systems on iOS?


If it's possible, is there any documentation on how to implement it?


Thanks,

Hi,

You can create a custom file manager but it will take some work and understanding of Cordova file systems

  1. Have this plugin as dependency in app https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/1633/file-plugin
  2. You might have to write some javascript using functions from https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/latest/reference/cordova-plugin-file/

As long as things are possible using cordova, those are all possible in Outsystems. There are several stack overflow question on reading the file or folder using cordova, search for them.

Regards.
