Possible to customize thumbnail container creation?

we are currently migrating our expansive customizations of the old WebViewer UI to the new UI within WebViewer 4.0.
While doing so we noticed that the previous method of overriding the creation of thumbnail containers in the sidepanel seems to be no longer available.

Previously we had overwritten the readerControl.createThumbnailContainer method with an altered version of the code to expand the thumbnail container with extra action buttons next to the page number.

Is there a way to do this in the new UI without changing the React code directly?

Hi Sascha,

Unfortunately, you would have to change the source code and build. I'm guessing you would need to update Thumbnail.js.
You can refer to our advanced customizations guide for forking and syncing to better keep track of your custom version: https://www.pdftron.com/documentation/web/guides/ui/advanced-customization

Hi Justin,

I created an issue on the ui repo for discussion of this as we think it would be best to design this as an API that other users can use as well: https://github.com/PDFTron/webviewer-ui/issues/49
Would be awesome if you could take a look at it.
