dynamic picture on folder card

Our projects are organized in folders. The folder card shows client, description, part number, the usual information.


Quite a few projects are nearly the same description wise, so the user has to go into the folder to preview the model (the edrawings preview) to identify specific items.

It would be quite easy to place a 'preview.bmp' picture into each folder, but is there any way I can make that visible on the folder itself?

That way the user could select one folder after the other without the need to browse into them each and every time.


Looking at the folder card editor I can only refer to static file locations, like 'C:\my pictures\my picture.bmp'. Is there a way to change that to a dynamic path that would point into the selected folder to show mentioned preview picture? Along the lines of '..\selected folder\preview.bmp'.


I'm not an API guru, but if someone could point me into the right direction, i'd really appreciate it.
