Media Manager

Functionality:

Using the Media Manager dialog the users of RadEditor can:

  • insert media in the editor's content area

  • upload new media, which will be available for inserting.

  • delete media

Properties to set:

The behavior of the Media Manager dialog is controlled by the following properties:

  • MediaPaths - by using this property you can set which MOSS's libraries to be included into the MediaPaths collection and shown in the Media Manager dialog. By default, all the libraries from the current site are included in the MediaPaths collection. If you set the Media Path starting with "/" it will refer the sites collection root.

  • MediaFilters - a string array which contains the file extension filters that controls which files are shown in the Media Manager dialog. The * character can be used as a wildcard in the extension, for example *.mp* will match *.mpeg* and any other extension which starts with mp.

  • MaxMediaSize - The maximum media file size in bytes, allowed for uploading. The default value is 2048000 bytes.

For example:

The files which properties need to be modified are ConfigFile.xml / ListConfigFile.xml, located in the following folder:

/Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/6.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/

<configuration>
    ................
    <property name="MediaPaths">
     <item>/RootSharedMedia</item>
     <item>CurrentSiteLibraries/MediaLibrary</item>
    </property>
    <property name="MediaFilters">
     <item>*.*</item>
    </property>
    <property name="MaxMediaSize">4096000</property>
</configuration>
note

Note that in SharePoint 2010 the Upload and Delete options depend on the current user's permissions for the desired library.
