    Hi..

    My folder structure is based on nodes and not physical folders.
    I have noticed that when I setup FileExplorer using Folder node, the CreateNewFolder  functionality is not visible, but if I try using FileExplorer for Physical folders, CreateNewFolder   is visible.

    Any idea how I can enable CreateNewFolder   for my scenario, that is with node folders?

    I think someone(Shaun Peet) here: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/file-explorer/i-had-to-build-my-own-because.aspx#793543 asked for this functionality back in 2008, has this been made possible yet now in 2013? (I guess no since I'm having this issue)

    Thanks!

    Ok, I'm bypassing this.
    I'm solving my issue with this approach:
    1) Add a custom RadToolButton in the fileExplorer's toolbar
    2) Add a client-side onClick event to popup a dialog aka RadWindow
    3) retrieve folderName from RadWindow popup and store in parent (hidden field)
    4) The when OnClientClose is invoked, at the end of execution trigger an AJAX EVENT
    5) In event do server-side logic for creating the new folder.

    In case there's a better approach or anyone can resolve the visibility of the inbuilt CreateNewFolder button for a "node folder" (physical folder works fine), please let me know.
    Thanks!
