    Just installed the 5.2.0 version and I wonder if there are any known issues with the Image Manager in this version?

    When displaying the Image Manager window the layout is no good. The columns for 'Ext', 'Filename' and 'Size' are not correct justified. (I'm currently using the 'Telerik' skin if that might have someting to do with it).

    Also I wonder how I do to browse to publishingImages in another site, or the root site? Now I can only reach files withing the current site.

    BR, Domack

    Hi Markus,

    We have fixed all know issues with RadEditor's dialogs under MOSS and in the next update of the control (which will be early next month) these problems won't be observed. 

    As to the ImagesPaths, let me elaborate a little bit on how the ImagesPaths collection works. When you set path starting without slash (e.g. "ImagesLibrary"), you will refer a local library - library from the current Web. If you set path staring with slash (e.g. /ImagesLibrary), you will refer a library from the SiteCollection (root).

    For example:
    SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary
    SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary

    Lets  open the SubSite1 ConfigFile.xml and set the following images path:
    <property name="ImagesPaths">
      <item>ImagesLibrary</item>
    </property>
    The ImageManager will load the SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary. 

    If you set the path with slash the ImageManager will open the SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary e.g. 
    <property name="ImagesPaths">
      <item>/ImagesLibrary</item>
    </property>

    If you do not set the editor's ImagesPaths property the dialog will show all the libraries from the current Web.

    Note that. you can refer libraries only from the current site collection.

    Thanks George for your quick answer.
    Regarding the imagePaths starting point I know how to set this. But from this starting point is it not possible to browse to another site and other libraries to select images? Also, I don't really follow what you're saying in your last sentence.

    Regards, Domack

    Hi Domack,

    Excuse me for the omission with the last sentence - I fixed it.

    Note that, it is possible to have different configuration files for the different Webs. So, you can set the desired paths depending on the Web. For more information on this topic please review the following help article: 
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/different-configuration-files-for-different-webs.html

    I hope this helps.

    Hi,
    Thanks, but I still haven't got the answer to my question:Should it be possible in the Image Manager to browse the whole site hierarchy within the site collection, so I can browse to any other web or to the root site etc to select images? Or can I only se the libraries that I specify with the imagePaths?
    I can't see any browse button or equal that lets me doing this. Is this how it should be?

    Regards, Domack

    I still have no answer to this simple question: Should it be possible to browse to another web from within the Image Manager?
    Anyone?

    Also, is it possible to change display name of the folders I specify with the ImagesPaths property?

    Hello Domack,

    Excuse us for the delayed reply. I will try to explain in more detail how the editor's Image Manager works.

    By default, the image manager will list all available libraries in the current site. If you want to show libraries from other sites in the same site collection, you can follow George's advice and modify the editor configuration file. For example, if you want to browse the publishing images and site collection images libraries in the root site of the site collection, you need to add the following lines in the configuration file:

    <property name="ImagesPaths">
      <item>/SiteCollectionImages</item>
      <item>/PublishingImages</item>
    </property>

    Note, that currently you can only add libraries in the ImagesPaths list in the configuration file. It is not possible to browse whole sites. For example, if you have a site called wiki in the root of the site collection, the following will NOT work:

    <property name="ImagesPaths">
      <item>/wiki</item>
    </property>

    However, you can access libraries in the wiki site if you want to:

    <property name="ImagesPaths">
      <item>/wiki/ImagesLibrary</item>
    </property>

    If you want to browse the whole sites and not only a list of libraries and your site is using MOSS 2007, then you can switch to the original MOSS asset picker dialog. Simply open the editor tools file (ToolsFile.xml or ListToolsFile.xml, located in the same folder as the configuration file) and rename the "ImageManager" tool to "MOSSImageManager". Note that the original MOSS asset picker dialog is not fully cross-browser compatible, so you might experience some issues in non-IE browsers.

    We probably need to use the MOSSImageManager then, so I'll evaluate that to see if it's working good enough.
    Thank you for your answer.

    I get what domack is asking I think and it is a feature request at this point.

    You have a site and you specify which folder that by default images are uploaded to. That is what we can currently do. But - the occasion might arise that you have a reason to upload an image to a more logical place than the default. The ability to browse all of the available folders in that case would be a good thing to be able to do.

    Even more interesting would be the ability to specify not by just web, but by list. The ability to configure all of the toolbar by list would be very very nice. So where do I submit feature requests to?

    I have to bump this thread.

    Our company really really wants a browsebutton for DocumentManager (that can select any document in any web), LinkManager,  Imagagemanager etc. etc. They work great except for the browse functionality and that forces us to stay with the "Mossversions".

    Hi Nil,

    In the latest version of RadEditor for MOSS 5.4.0 the Hyperlink Manager  dialog has a functionality of calling the Document Manager dialog, from where the user can chose an URL for the link. I attached a couple of screen shots where you can see the functionality.

    What I suggest to you is upgrading to the latest version of the control. Information on upgrading to a newer version of the control you can find in the following help article http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/upgrade_to_a_newer_version_of_radeditor_for_moss.html.

    What you should know is that we are going to release the SP2 of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX 2009.Q1 next week. Some bugs that we had with RadEditor for MOSS will be fixed in this release.

    All the best,

    Yesyes, I know that one.(And we do have 5.4)

    Works just great EXCEPT for one thing. You cannot browse the whole sitestructure.
    We have a LOT of sites.
    And if our "editors" are here http://moss/news/bla/site and want's to link to a document residing here  http://moss/info/bla/sitewithdoc thet can't browse like with the AssetPortalBrowser where they can browse all the  webs in a sitecollection.
    Same with the imagemanager. Yours are far better, but our editors "have some problems" when they can't browse the whole structure.

    So, instead of having  this in the configfile: 
    <property name="DocumentsPaths">
      <item>/SiteCollectionDocuments</item>
      <item>Documents</item>
     </property>

    We want this (hehe)
     <property name="DocumentsPaths">
      <item>/</item>
      <item>/Documents</item>
     </property>

    Are you with me? :)

    Hello Nil,

    Yes I understand the functionality that you are trying to achieve. Unfortunately when you set a Path property starting with "/" it will refer the sites collection root. In general, you can not browse in other sites collections. This is how the RadEdtitor for MOSS content provider works.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.
