    Hi John S,
    Most of the features of RadFileExplorer work with the new release, but there are still some features that do not. These are the features that require drag and drop - e.g. you will not be able to drag and drop the RadSplitBar control that separates the treeview pane from the grid pane or move the RadWindow control that opens when you want to upload a file.

    The main limitation that RadFileExplorer has, when used on iPad, comes from the fact that an input with type="file" renders disabled on iPad. As a result, you cannot use RadUpload to upload files. However, there is nothing that we can do in this respect.

    I would recommend that you test the control on iPad to see if it fits your requirements: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/fileexplorer/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx.

    Hi, I just wanted to know the status of Tsvetie's reply and know if it still stands, after more than two years, specially for uploading. I tried this DEMO on my Ipad and uploading doesnt seem to be possible. if yes, any plan to make it possible in near future?

    TIA

    Hi Martin,

    The upload in IPAD is possible,but supported only for the latest version of iOS. There are two minor problems that we are aware at present:

    1. The Upload dialog is broken and its content is rendered above the dialog. That issue is already logged internally and we are working on it - I have made it public so you could track its progress here. Nevertheless, that visual glitch does not influence the uploading functionality itself, so it could be used.

    2. Another known issue is a limitation of iOS 6. All the uploaded images are coming with one and the same name "image.jpg". That behavior is discussed in various places on the internet such as :
    http://www.plupload.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=2205
    https://github.com/moxiecode/plupload/issues/623
    However as a workaround it is possible to use the following help article to change the uploaded files names:
    http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/aspnet-ajax/editor/giving-the-uploaded-files-unique-names.aspx

    Here you can see the video from my upload test in the mentioned by you FileExplorer's demo: video.

    Thanks Vesi for the prompt and detailed reply.

    Ill try to get my hands on a model with iOS 6 to do more testing. Meanwhile, maybe you can answer these questions:

    1-Can we use the AsyncUpload? It seems to use the obsolete one by looking at your video.

    2-Can we upload multiple files at once, even with the renaming workaround you mentioned?

    3-Is there a way to only apply the renaming workaround when using an iOS? I would like to keep original and untouched names when using PC or Android for instance.

    TIA

    Martin

    Hi Martin,

    In regarding with your questions:

    1. Yes, you could use the AsyncUpload. In order to do it you just need to set the EnableAsyncUpload property of FileExplorer to "true":
    <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" EnableAsyncUpload="true">
    </telerik:RadFileExplorer>

    2. There should not be a problem to upload multiple files and to rename them at the same time, because the the StoreFile() method from the FileBrowserContentProvider is called for every file individually.

    3. I made a little research and it seems that the .Net Framework offers a way to load different aspx files, depending on the browser type. I am providing you with some of the results from my search, so you could see whether that approach fits your scenario:
    MSDN - Redirecting to an ASP.NET Mobile Web Page
    ASP.NET forums - Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice
    A blog post - Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice


    All the best,
