A specialized version of RollingList that handles file information


The file picker extends the rolling list to add file-specific styling (folder/file icons), as well as the concept of file system hierarchy.


Creating a file picker is similar to creating a rolling list. In addition to the options for rolling list, you can specify the following:
  • pathSeparator The path separator to use - it will be guessed if not provided
  • topDir the top-level directory to provide access to - it will be guessed if not provided
  • pathAttr the attribute to read for getting the full path of the file
  • New in 1.3 selectDirectories whether or not you want to allow selecting of directories
  • New in 1.3 selectFiles whether or not you want to allow selecting of files

Additional attr value

You can call widget.get(“pathValue”) or widget.set(“pathValue”, ...) to get or set the value of the widget - using “string” format (ie. “/path/to/file.txt”) instead of using the item


A simple file picker pulling data from a

<div data-dojo-type="" data-dojo-id="fileStore" data-dojo-props="pathAsQueryParam:true,
<div data-dojo-type="dojox.widget.FilePicker" data-dojo-props="store:fileStore, query:{}" style="height:150px;width:50%"></div>
@import "{{baseUrl}}dojox/widget/FilePicker/FilePicker.css";
