    Hi,

    I currently have the radEditor throughout my SharePoint application. The Document / Image Manager defaults to Gridview and thumbnails view respectively. Is there anyway to change these default views through the config.xml files? I have some picky users that keep complaining they have to switch views everytime. When uploading hundreds of images, I guess this can get tedious.

    Hello Neo,

    Yes, you can control the ImageManager's ViewMode through a config.xml file, as the property name you have to configure is ImageManagerViewMode . It can receive either "Thumbnails" as a value, either "Grid".
    Unfortunatelly, the DocumentManager does not support a similar property for the moment.

    For example:
    <configuration>
        <property name="ImageManagerViewMode">Grid</property>
    </configuration>

    I hope this solution will suit your needs.

    Is there a property exposed where we can choose the column to sort by default?

    Right now, it automatically sorts by Size - see attached

    Thanks

    Hi Michael,

    I am afraid that such a sorting property is not exposed in RadEditor and could not be used out of the box.

    Hope this information will be helpful.

    Out of curiosity: is there a sorting property exposed as of yet, per this request?  This post is over two years old, and I'm wondering if this feature has been added yet.

     Thanks.

    Hi John,

    There are still no properties exposed with which to control that. Also, there has never been an officially logged request for that. At least, searching through the corresponding feedback portal (http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/108/), I am unable to find such a feature request. 

    I suggest you to log one with some details about where these properties would be exposed and how they would look like. Such details are important as they define accurately the demand for such a functionality. Thus, they can raise the attention of the dev team, so that the task to be properly estimated for implementation.
