ISO: Examples of adding custom columns (and data) to the Detail View (MVC or Core, preferrably)
Question asked by Jerome Atchison - 11/14/2019 at 6:09 AM
I am In Search Of (ISO) some example code or documentation that demonstrates how to add/remove/configure the columns in the detail view either server side or client side.  

I would like to take the filename.ext and query against a database (REST api ajax call) to get additional metadata I have about the file and then display that data in additional columns in the Detail View or in tooltips for the icon views.  I have most of the pieces working except I can't seem to find where I can hook into the fileultimate.js API to modify its "columns" property.  I found a getViewColumnsConfig function, but not sure how to use it or even if this is the correct way to do what I want...

I am able to translate from most other languages to my preferred coding tools, but examples in C# for ASP.Net MVC or MVC Core would be awesome.

Snippet from other thread:
  <script type="text/javascript">

              //Adding a column for "Details" view layout
        Ext.override(fileManager, {
            getViewColumnsConfig: function () {
                var columns = this.callParent(arguments);

                    text: "Test column",
                    dataIndex: "name",
                    tdCls: "x-item-value",
                    renderer: function (value, meta, record) {
                        //you can use the name value as an id to 
                        //get your own corresponding value here
                        //e.g if you have an object customValues 
                        //with file names as key, you can retrieve
                        //and return customValues[record.data.name]
                        return record.data.name;

                return columns;
