    Is it possible to have search in Image Manager?
    It can be difficult to find an image if the folder has thousands of images.

    Hi Hslaw,

    Yes, it is possible. Here are the steps to enable the Filter textbox in the File Browser dialogs

    1) Register the external dialog files of RadEditor:
    - Copy the EditorDialogs installation folder to the root of the web project
    - Set the ExternalDialogsPath= "~/EditorDialogs"; property,
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ExternalDialogsPath="~/EditorDialogs" ID="RadEditor1">
        <ImageManager ViewPaths="~/" UploadPaths="~/"/>

    2) Open the EditorDialogs\FileBrowser.ascx file, locate the <telerik:RadFileExplorer declaration and set EnableFilterTextBox="True", e.g.

    <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" Height="450px"Width="400px" TreePaneWidth="150px"
    runat="Server" EnableOpenFile="false" EnableFilterTextBox="True" AllowPaging="true" PageSize="100"/>

    3) Save the files and refresh the page to test the Image manager dialog.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Following these 3 steps, when I'm adding ExternalDialogsPath="~/EditorDialogs" the image can't be inserted into the editor.
    When pressing the "Insert" button, nothing happens in the editor, and you can't see the added image.
    Any idea what is the problem?

    Hi Guy,

    I tried to reproduce the problematic behavior but the Editor with the provided by Rumen configuration behaves properly on my side. Can you please provide more details on the exact scenario?
    • Which version of the controls is used in your application?
    • In which browser and its version does the issue occur?
    • Could you verify that there is no any JavaScript error thrown on the page?

    It would be really helpful if you prepare a sample fully runnable project reproducing the problem, so we could debug it locally.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
