Viewing Properties with DAV Explorer
WebDAV allows name/value pairs called properties to
be stored on Web resources, providing a place to find information
about the Web resource, such as its length, content type, supported
locks, etc. This "information about information" is often
To display the properties defined on a resource, select it, then
from the View menu select "View Properties":
Or click on the view properties icon
A window will appear,
like the example below, displaying the properties defined on the resource.
As the example shows, properties can be arranged in a hierarchical fashion.
To add properties, click on the "Add" button in the Properties window. A dialog like
the one shown below, will appear, allowing the addition of a new property. This property
can be added to the root of the property hierarchy, or it can be added as a child to the
currently selected property. If there is no property selected in the Properties window,
the latter option will be disabled.
A Property can be modified by double-clicking in the Value field of a property. This is
demonstrated in the example below.
The changed properties can then be saved with a click on the "Save" button.
To delete a property, select it, and then click on the "Delete" button.
Note that certain properties, as defined in the WebDAV specification (RFC 2518) can
not be changed or deleted.
