    I need the FileExplorer control to handle encrypted files. Since all access to the files needs a encryption/decryption key is there an easy way to accomplish this?

    If the only way is to override all the controls functionality is there a same project of overriding everything out there?

    Hi Justin,

    RadFileExplorer does not provide a built-in functionality to handle encrypted files, so there is no an easier way I can suggest you than implementing it on your own. Unfortunately there is no an already prepared sample with a similar implementation I can navigate you to.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I couldn't find anything so I assumed there was nothing out there but thought it couldn't hurt to ask.

    I did find this page: http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/connect-radfileexplorer-or-radeditor-to-a-sql-databse

    I think that should get me a good base to start from. Just posting here to close this thread.

    Hi Justin,

    Implementing a custom content provider is a good option to populate the control with data from a custom storage location, but I still cannot guarantee that it will cope well with encrypted files. Nevertheless, if you decide to go with this approach, you may find also useful the information from the following help article: Use Custom FileBrowserContentProvider

    The content provider at hand can be also tested in our live demos here:
