Bug in resize of ecm.widget.FolderTree

I just noticed a bug in the FolderTree widget. It is setting its size based on the first ancestor widget, not parent dom node. That means if your FolderTree is in a div or anything not widget, it will take the size of the first ancestor widget, which can be a lot bigger than the dom element it is in and give you some weird behavior.

To fix this, wrap it in a BorderContainer, ContentPane or any sort of widget, or override the resize method to behave nicely with your configuration.

File Tracker download directory regression

Using Workplace XT, we were able to keep the folder hierarchy of a Document within the Object Store when downloading it with the File Tracker applet. That means, if your document’s path was /Folder/SubFolder/Document.xml, and your FileTracker folder on the client was C:\FileNet\Work, then you would get your document downloaded as C:\FileNet\Work\ObjectStoreName\Folder\SubFolder\Document.xml.

That’s no longer true with ICN. Everything goes into your download folder, C:\FileNet\Work in the previous example, without creating any sub-directories. This is especially an issue if you download a lot of document and want to edit them, this folder becomes a mess, and if a lot of documents are called the same in your Object Store, then you will have conflicts.

Officially, this is because this functionality is now covered by the Sync and Share feature, which uses a client agent on Windows platform, and is embedded in mobile applications. However this does not cover Unix platforms, and does not allow using Entry Templates, which can be a requirement for your platform. That’s why we will see how to make it work in ICN anyway.

How to fix that

Workplace XT File Type issue in ICN

This is the second post about the issue occurring when using Workplact XT entry template with ICN. We’ve seen that there is an inheritance problem in this post, we will now see that there is a problem of File Types filters. This issue needs to be addressed if you want to use the second work around of the former issue.


You’ve created Entry Templates in Workplace XT, and also created a few File Type Categories gathering several MIME Types. You’ve used these Entry Templates by associating them on a folder to use them when adding document. You restricted them by File Type Category. For example ET 1 is only for Images (File Type Images gathering image/png, image/jpeg, …), ET 2 is only for office documents, and ET3 is for every king of document. That looks a little bit like that in Workplace XT:


Problem is that in ICN, this does not work. You always get the generic entry template (in my case misc doc, or no Entry Template if they all have restrictions on the File Type Categories.
