Controlling the number of files for which previews and metadata are pre-fetched in Content Station 9

Controlling the number of files for which previews and metadata are pre-fetched in Content Station 9

Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.5.0 or higher.

When a user selects a file in a Document pane, not only is the metadata and (when available) the preview of that file obtained from the Server, but the same is also done for 4 other files:

  • When in List view mode: the 2 files preceding the selected file and the 2 files directly following the selected file.
  • When in Thumb view mode: the files to the left, right, above and below the selected file.

This way, when the user selects one of these 4 files the data is readily available.

To change this default value, add the following option:

  • File: configserver.php
  • Name of option: ContentStationNumberOfItemsToPrefetch
  • Area: SERVERFEATURES
  • Possible values: 0 (zero) or greater (else the default value '4' is used)
  • Example:
define ('SERVERFEATURES', serialize(array( 
new Feature( 'CreatePagePreview' ), 
new Feature( 'CreatePagePDFOnProduce' , '[Press Quality]' ), 
new Feature( 'Messaging' ), 
new Feature( 'Broadcasting' ), 
new Feature( 'EventPort' , 8093 ), 
new Feature( 'CompanyLanguage' , 'enUS'), 
new Feature( 'KeepCheckedOut' ), 
new Feature( 'ContentStationNumberOfItemsToPrefetch', 8), 
)));
