    Hi Ronen,

    Here is a code example which demonstrates how to display the name of the selected RadFileExplorer item in a span element:

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientItemSelected(sender, args) {
            var fileNameLabel = $get("FileNameLabel");
            var imageSrc = args.get_item().get_name();
            fileNameLabel.innerHTML = imageSrc;
    <telerik:RadFileExplorer runat="server" ID="FileExplorer1" Width="520px" Height="520px"
        <Configuration ViewPaths="~/Images" UploadPaths="~/Images" DeletePaths="~/Images" />
    <br />
    The selected file name is: 
    <span runat="server" id="FileNameLabel"></span>

    For your convenience I have attached my test files.

    thanks, i already manged to do that using:


    function fillFileName(sender, args) {



    var label = document.getElementById('<%=TextBoxFileName.ClientID%>');



    if (label != null)


    label.innerText = args.get_item().get_path();

    OnClientItemSelected(sender, args);
