Hi All,

see above - is this possible? How are these "LinkClick ID's" generated?

Explanation: need to provide download links in a datagrid using bound data.

Thx in advance for help and/or pointers!

If you upload a file to the dnn using its internal file upload tools and whenever you run a synchronize on the dnn file manager -  dnn creates an internal file store reference to each individual file.

The linkclick id's are simply records pointing to the internal file store references.

To locate a folder in the file store - all relative to the user portal for example based on an absolution path for portal 0 - c:\website\Portals\0\

to find the fileid of a file in c:\website\Portals\0\somefolder\somefile.txt

String thisFileStr = "somefile.txt";
String thisFolderStr "\somefolder\";

IFolderInfo thisfolder = FolderManager.Instance.GetFolder(PortalId,thisFolderStr);

FileInfo thisFile = FileManager.Instance.GetFile(thisfolder ,thisFileStr);

Int32 thisFileId = thisFILE001.FileId;

Hi Wes,
thx for the reply/help.
The code you posted works (with a slight correction: thisFile object needs to be IFileInfo), but FileID is an int and the id's (-> fileticket) used with LinkClick.aspx seem to be some kind of hash (example: LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=MpWdqgIP9Fw%3d&portalid=0).

How do I get that value - or - how do I use the FileID to create a link to retrieve the file?

Once again, thx for your help!

Accepted Answer 
ok - you can create a fileticket by encoding the fileId.
 
Int32 targetFileId = 100;
String thisTargetURL = “LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=” + UrlUtils.EncryptParameter(targetFileId .Tostring()) ;
