Images, Videos, PDFs, any file uploaded to NetCanvas system is recorded as an Asset.
Asset Data items allow for any kind of to be uploaded and tracked on the server.
Association With Data Items
Asset s uploaded, it can be "Attached" to a data item.
For example, when using an
Image control bound to a DataSource=>
WebPage.cMainImage the Image uploader will record the relationship between the uploaded image and the
WebPage via the
Assets data collection.
This allows for filtering of image, or other types, when exposing selectable image, such as when selecting an image via the
Image control. The initial listing only includes images that have been uploaded for that
WebPage, in the previous example.
Assets are, optionally, included in backups. Because you might have a large site with lots of assets, you always want to keep multiple copies of the same assets.
