    I am using RadFileExplorer which looks good. But users also want to copy the path of the uploaded file. Is there any easy way? For example, right click and Copy Path.

    I am not sure that I understand what exactly do you mean with "users also want to copy the path of the uploaded file":
    • if you want the user to be able to copy the server path to the currently uploaded file - this functionality is not available out-of-the box but you can achieve it by adding a custom command in the Grid context menu, where to implement the desired functionality. More information is available here: Adding a custom button to the toolbar and an item to the tree context menu
      For example, you could do it in a similar way:
      telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad">
          <Configuration ViewPaths="~/Images" UploadPaths="~/" DeletePaths="~/Images" />
      <script type="text/javascript">
          function OnClientLoad(explorer, args) {
          function gridContextMenuClicked(sender, args) {
              var buttonValue = args.get_item().get_value();
              if (buttonValue == "copyPath") {
                  var path = $find("RadFileExplorer1").get_selectedItem().get_path();
      void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
          if (!IsPostBack)
              RadMenuItem customMenuOption = new RadMenuItem("Copy Path");
              customMenuOption.Value = "copyPath";
    • if you want to access the original path to the uploaded file (from the user's PC) - I am afraid that cannot be achieved. More detailed information on the subject is available here.

    I hope you will find this information helpful. Feel free to contact us if we could be of any further assistance.
