Add Windows Explorer Integration to Document
Management Software, Content Management Software and Virtual Drives Using
Registry Browser Namespace Extension Developed Using EZNamespaceExtensions
Companies developing document management software, information management
software, content management software, asset management software, virtual
drives, and database browsers and front-ends are always looking for ways
to improve the usability of their product. Adding Windows Explorer integration
is one of the ways of achieving this. Windows Explorer integration allows
users to interact with the software right from Windows Explorer or File
Open/Save dialogs. For example, consider document management software.
Every time a user needs to retrieve documents from the repository or add
new documents to it, he/she has to first open the software and then interact
with the software to achieve the desired goal. On the other hand, suppose
the same product was integrated within Windows Explorer, the user can
access documents and browse through the document repository right from
the comfort and convenience of Windows Explorer. Then, to retrieve a document,
he/she could simply drag-drop the document from the repository to his
hard-drive. Similarly, to add a new document, he/she would simply drag-drop
the document from his hard-disk to a folder within the repository. Of
course, all this occurs in Windows Explorer!
And now, EZNamespaceExtensions
offers to make the process of adding Windows Explorer integration (via
namespace extensions) fast and painless!
Adding Windows Explorer Integration is now a breeze!
EZNamespaceExtensions is a framework library for fast, painless and easy
development of Windows Explorer namespace extensions. Namespace extension
development is notorious for its difficulty, subtleties and for the sheer
amount of work and time that is required. With EZNamespaceExtensions,
developers can concentrate on writing the functionality of the namespace
extension and not worry about the hundred things that are necessary to
integrate the namespace extension seamlessly into Windows Explorer and
File Open/Save Dialogs. EZNamespaceExtensions can reduce the time required
to develop this functionality by as much as 80%.
Fast-track namespace extension development with project wizards
One of the best features of EZNamespaceExtensions is its Visual Studio
integrated project wizard. Create a new namespace extension project using
this wizard generates skeletal code for a read-to-build-and-view namespace
extension. With the scaffolding in place, it’s a matter of adding
functionality specific to your namespace extension. Each functionality
is exposed as one or more well-designed API and adding functionality is
as simple as overriding methods and writing product-specific code.
