Is it possible to show Vault File Id in Vault Explorer

I found a post from 2006 where someone wanted to do the same thing (with no success).  I am wondering if this is possible now?

 

Basically when I'd developing I want to use vault explroer to perform various user functions and then test code.  Being able to have a column in Vault Explorer showing the file's internal id would be very beneficial.  Is this possible?  If not, could it be added?  I suspect it would be very simple to add this feature...

Hello Farren Young,

 

There isn't a directly supported way of displaying the file's ID in vault explorer, but one option that might be easy and helpful would be to use the HelloWorld sample that comes packaged with the Vault SDK. If you build and deploy this sample extension, there will be a custom tab when you select a file that will display the file's master id. You could also extend the sample if you would like to include any other information.

Thanks a lot.  That will have to work.
