The Document and Photo Browser widget has two main sections:

File List Section – This section (on the left side of widget) is used to navigate to different folders and files. The folder to the far left will be the root folder (usually "All Items" in the Explorer Widget). The widget will show all the files in this folder.

Details Section – This section (on the right side of widget) displays the meta data associated with the selected file and an image preview based on file type. These meta data include: Title, Author, Confidential, Facility (in the format <facility code>: <facility name>), Location, Date, Remark and File (this file name is also a download link). Any other meta data fields defined in RT_FILE_PARAM_TYPE will also be displayed between the Date and Remark fields. To the right of the meta-data, a preview image of the file will be displayed. Depending on the type of file, something different may be displayed. If it is an image file, a preview version of that image will be displayed. If it is a known type of document, including pdf files, a preview image of the first page of that document will be displayed. If it is a zip file, the first level of files in that zip file will be listed in the preview image. If it is an unknown type of file, the file name will be listed in the preview image.

 

Widget Properties

 

To change properties of the Document and Photo Browser widget, open the Widget Editor by selecting the More Options dashboard_chooser icon in the upper right corner of the widget to display the drop-down menu and then select the Edit menu option.

Widget Title – By default, the widget title is Document and Photo Browser. The title can be modified.

Widget Color – The color of the widget can be changed using the Change Widget Themecolor_iconicon to the left of the widget title.

Root Folder Name – This property is only available to administrators. Use the drop-down tree structure to select the root folder that the Document and Photo Browser Widget should open to when first adding or refreshing and has a default root folder whose name defaults to All Items. If any folder has any sub-folders, it will be followed by an arrow icon. Clicking on this icon will display a drop-down list of the sub-folders. Clicking on any of these sub-folders in the drop-down list will add that folder to the breadcrumbs path. In this way, a user can navigate to any folder. Clicking on any previous folders in the breadcrumbs path will navigate back to that folder and set the root folder accordingly.

Cancel – Select the Close without Saving Close_icon button to exit the Widget Editor without saving changes.

Save – Changes will be applied to the widget by clicking on the Save Widget_Save_icon button. The Widget Editor screen will close after the save operation is complete.
