The DMS support on a Multi-Clip control is fairly limited and certainly feels like a basic extension vs a redesigned component.

 

One of the issues we have is that there is a document library folder for a domain entity which spans process instances (Metastorm folders). The issue is that because Metastorm manages its list of documents based on entries within a table it will not accurately display the full collection within the repository. Granted you could re-add the entries manually but this is obviously not ideal.

 

Has anybody approached this problem before? My initial approach is to refresh that table through a custom piece of code that will navigate the DMS and drop and re-add entries within Metastorm's table. There are a number of concerns I have with my own proposed solution so I am curious to see if somebody has solved this in some way or even if the same approach what I should expect. Raw database changes or is there a library call?

You are correct, it is limited.

I am not aware of any approaches using this method. Personally, I would advocate a custom solution building a grid with a URL included. In an ideal world, this grid would be constructed from a scripted Business Object, in fact.

Yeah, that has come up as a possible solution.  Especially to extract more Sharepoint functionality.

Unfortunately, this is a rapid design with just basic DMS needs so we are attempting to "stay in the box" as much as possible.
