    I have a need to lock the fileExplorer down to jus the fileView, I do not want the to see the toolbar or the location of the directory that they are pulling from.  Is there a way to do this.  The only thing they should see is the files that belong to them.

    <tr>
                       <td><telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="radExplorer" runat="server" Width="400px" Height="200px" EnableOpenFile="true" DisplayUpFolderItem="false"
                           EnableCreateNewFolder="false" AvailableFileListControls="Grid" ExplorerMode="Default">
                               <Configuration ViewPaths="~/PriorSvcUploads" />
                           </telerik:RadFileExplorer>
                       </td>
                   </tr>

    Hi Kevin,

    You can control the controls that are visible in FileExplorer by configuring its VisibleControls property. For example, if you want to use only the FileExplorer's Grid control, your configuration can be:
    <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="radExplorer" runat="server" Width="400px" Height="200px" EnableOpenFile="true" DisplayUpFolderItem="false"
        EnableCreateNewFolder="false" AvailableFileListControls="Grid" ExplorerMode="Default" VisibleControls="Grid">
        <Configuration ViewPaths="~/PriorSvcUploads" />
    </telerik:RadFileExplorer>

    I hope this helps.

    Ok works great thanks, but a recommended update to the cotrol would be an HTML view function for viewing certain states that you want users to see, less code.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for your suggestion. The current implementation of the control does not allow such change to be easily applied, but I will pass your idea to our developers and they will decide whether the desribed improvement can be done in the future.

    Kind regards,
