Avoid calling OpenHandler when browsing folder using Explore

Mar 13, 2013 2:31 PM

In sample.basicftp project , whenever user browsing the mapped folder using Explore (or Finder on MAC) , OpenHandler will be called muliple times, therefore the whole asset files will be downloaded from DAM serveral times.

This makes the whole thing extreemly slow if user has a lot files or big files in the same folder on th DAM server.


Is there any way to avoid downloading file at all when user just browsing the folder?



I know if we just use Adobe Bridge this will not happen. But our InDesign user may open / place  asset using"Open File" dialog to select file located at  the mapped Adobe Drive which will trigger Adobe Drive plugin to download all assets in that folder.   In the end , "Open File"dialog is still an Explore window .
