    Hello. Is there a way to disable/hide the Thumbnails View on the File Explorer (for Document Manager, Flash Manager, Image Manager, et. al.)? If so, can someone give an example of how to set this property in code, either client-side or server-side?

    To be a bit more specific, I have a RadEditor implementation that uses the various file managers, such as Document Manager, Image Manager, Flash Manager, etc. I need to be able to access the FileExplorer objects that are bound to that RadEditor in order to change the VisibleControls on each of those FileExplorer objects.

    After digging further, it seems that unless I use External Dialog files, I'm limited as to what I can customize. So I suppose that's my answer.

    Hi Michael,

    Your observation is totally correct - the only way to customize the Visible Controls of FileExplorer in a RadEditor scenario is to enable the ExternalDialogs for the later. The FileExplorer's declaration used for all dialogs can be found in the FileBrowser.ascx file, so it is enough to define the desired visible controls in it:
    <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" Height="400px" Width="400px" TreePaneWidth="150px"
    runat="Server" EnableOpenFile="false" AllowPaging="true" PageSize="100"
    VisibleControls="AddressBox,ContextMenus,Grid,Toolbar,TreeView"/>
