    I realize this is an old thread but I haven't been able to find any further information regarding the original posters initial suggestion: an ability to relabel or alias a folder name in the RadFileExplorer.

    Was this ever implemented or does anyone know of a possible work around?  I've gotten so far as to create the viewPaths using a "name|path" structure, and then in my custom FileSystemProvider was able to split that value when creating DirectoryItems.  However, because I couldn't perform the split and repopulate the viewPaths with valid file paths prior to the constructor being called, it doesn't seem any of the file navigation works.  Has anyone been able to come up with a solution for this?

    Hello Matt,

    Please, find attached a sample working project that demonstrates a similar scenario to yours. RadFileExplorer creates folders and files dynamically in the code from the existing physical directory.
    Pysical Directory contains all the files. File name contains three parts seperated by '__', three parts should be read and created as folders.

    Note that this is a getting started example which you can use as a base to implement your scenario.

    I want to add a custom checkbox on the Upload window, checking/unchecking of which will decide something related to documents.
    Is that possible somehow?

    Hi Rohan,

    the desired scenario could be achieved by using the FileExplorer's createNewDirectory() method. It expects two parameters:
    • the path where the folder to be created
    • the name of the new folder

    For your convenience I am attaching a sample project demonstrating the approach. I have added an additional Textbox where I take the name of the new folder from, and a button which is firing the creation of the new folder (in the current one).

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
