    I have the fileexplorer on a screen but when I right click and the context menu pops up Open is missing from the context list.  Double click does work and I have EnableOpenFile="true"  but I would like Open to show in the context menu.

     

    Also is there a way to add an open file button to the menu on the top.  There are people who are tring to use the site on tablets amd the double click does not work and a press hold does not seem to provide the right click menu.

    never mind the second section.  I should have checked the current menu bar and nit just taken the word of the users.  But I am trying to figure out why Open is missing from the context menu.

    Hi Frank,

    Are you by any chance using the FileExplorer control in a FileTree ExplorerMode? If so, I am afraid that this behavior is expected as the "Open" option is part only of the Grid/ListView control's context menu. As a workaround for this behavior I can suggest that you implement a custom TreeView's context menu button like explained in this help article: Adding a custom button to the toolbar and an item to the tree context menu.

    If this is not the case, though, can you please provide some more details on the specific scenario in which you are using the control? Can you send us the problematic FileExplrorer's configurartion so we can examine it on our side?
