Change File/Folder images in Flexible UI


I want to change the file and folder images in e.g ConsumerColumns Layout set. I've changed the "File Image Path" in the corresponding ResourceRenderer for ConsumerColumns layut set. In the Online help, it says : "Only specify the file name and subdirectory (if needed) in the input field.

" . So, I've copied my image to etc/public/mimes/images and have written "mypic.jpg" to the "File Image Path". But it did not work. I've tried writing the full path for the image but it did not work either.

I'm usin EP6 SP2 P5.

    Hi Ahmet,

    I'm not sure whether the "File Image" path property is the one to use in your case. The files (.gif) associated to folders and files are called icons and can be changed in the content management configuration section (Utilities). There you will be able to assign a different .gif to, for example, application_vnd_.wcm-folder which is the standard_folder gif (stored in etc/public/mines/images). However, this will affect all icons regardsless of the used lay-out set. I'm not sure whether there is a way to make these changes lay-out specific. Hope this helps!

    You are quite close to what you want to achieve. You just have to go to the collection renderer and replace the rnd:icon property by the rnd:image property. Only that one can grab the icon/image from elsewhere, while rnd:icon always takes it from the RFs mimetype-service.

    In case you have an unstructured output (not under the collection renderer control like for list collection renderers), you have to replace the property in the resource renderer itself, because then it is responsible for the complete output on its own...

    Hope this helps.
