Media library Customization

Alonso Gonzalez asked on January 15, 2018 17:35

Hi there,

I'll like to extend the functionality of the default Media Library, right now Im able to upload image files and it render them properly ( I can see a thumbnail of the image when Im selecting it from the Media Selector ) but if I try uploading an SVG image file I will only get a white square.

Image Text

Currently Image files get a tag and display the thumbnail with no problema, but if an svg is uploaded media library will use an tag. How can I do a proper render of this svg to show in the Media Library and in the Media Selector (basically use instead of icon tag?

Thanks,

I had the same issue with svg. Media library must treat svg as an image, so the preview will work You can add this key to web,config: <add key="CMSImageExtensions" value="svg;bmp;gif;ico;png;wmf;jpg;jpeg;tiff;tif" />

Or you can modified the code where the rendereing happens in \CMSModules\MediaLibrary\Controls\MediaLibrary\MediaFileEdit.ascx.cs and there around line 430 in the private void SetupFile() you need to change
if (ImageHelper.IsImage(FileInfo.FileExtension) to if (ImageHelper.IsImage(FileInfo.FileExtension) || FileInfo.FileExtension == ".svg")

P.S. File The App_Data/mimetypes.txt file used to register custom media types was removed in Kentico 10. Read more here

Im not sure, BUT You can try edit MediaView.aspx.cs(/CMSModules/MediaLibrary/Controls/MediaLibrary/MediaView.ascx) file at line no : 799.

 // Check if file has a preview
 if (!ImageHelper.IsSupportedByImageEditor(extension))
 {
     // File isn't image and no preview exists - get the default file icon
     parameters.IconClass = UIHelper.GetFileIconClass(extension);
 }
 else
 {
     // Files are obtained from the FS
     if (!data.ContainsColumn("FileURL"))
     {
         parameters.Url = GetItemUrl(arg, true, height, width, maxSideSize);
     }
     else
     {
         parameters.IconClass = UIHelper.GetFileIconClass(extension);
     }
 }
