Customizing Cameyo's file dialog

Customizing Cameyo's replacement file dialog with custom names, paths, and icons.

Custom names

You can change the default names of My files, Drag & Drop, and Download that normally appear.  This example will change the names to Documents, Import, and Export, respectively.  Connect to the Cameyo server as AdminUser and create a system variable named CAMEYO_STORAGEFILEDIALOGPATHS.  Give it a value similar to this (Documents>0>X:\Documents;Import>7>\\tsclient\Storage;Export>9>X:\Outbound):

CAMEYO_STORAGEFILEDIALOGPATHS w Documents

Users will see these as the new file dialog:

Documents

Export

Note: if you wish to eliminate My files altogether instead of renaming it, simply leave it out of the value.  For example: Import>7>\\tsclient\Storage;Export>9>X:\Outbound.

Custom paths

If you've enabled Cameyo's replacement file dialog, you can add extra paths to it by adding a system variable named CAMEYO_FILEDIALOG_EXTRA and setting it using the syntax:[display_name]>0>[path], where display_name is a short name by which the path will be displayed to users, 0 is reserved, and path indicates the directory it should point to (use %Profile% to indicate the user's profile). The directory must exist or the path will not be shown.

Example:

CAMEYO_FILEDIALOG_EXTRA = Docs>0>%Profile%\Documents

You can specify several display items by using semi-columns. For example:

CAMEYO_FILEDIALOG_EXTRA = Docs>0>%Profile%\Documents;Music>0>%Profile%\Music;Pics>0>%Profile%\Pictures

In the above example, the CAMEYO_FILEDIALOG_EXTRA system variable is set to "Docs>0>%Profile%\Documents;Music>0>%Profile%\Music;Pics>0>%Profile%\Pictures".

This Resulting in the following display:

Remarks:

  • If the indicated path does not exist it will not be shown.
  • For better display and usability, it is recommended to use short display names, and not more than 3 extra paths.

Custom icons

To customize icons, place a 30x30 BMP or PNG file named Dlg.[storage name].bmp within C:\RemoteAppPilot. For example, to replace the icon for the "Docs" item in the above example screenshot, create your picture file as C:\RemoteAppPilot\Dlg.Docs.bmp.

Note: despite the extension .BMP, PNG pictures are supported as well.
