    I am using the RadBrowseEditior to select image files. I have coded the object to make sure the selected file is only one of the following:

    *.BMP, *.GIF, *.PNG, *.JPG

    I would also like the open file dialog box to have those items set as the shown files. Is there a setting to mask the file types in the file picker?

    Hello Ben,

    Thank you for writing.  

    If the RadBrowseEditor.DialogType property is set to OpenFileDialog, it will use the OpenFileDialog for selecting a file. You can apply a filter to specify the allowed files:
    this.radBrowseEditor1.DialogType = Telerik.WinControls.UI.BrowseEditorDialogType.OpenFileDialog;
    OpenFileDialog dialog = (OpenFileDialog)radBrowseEditor1.Dialog;
    dialog.Filter = "JPEG Files (*.jpeg)|*.jpeg|PNG Files (*.png)|*.png|JPG Files (*.jpg)|*.jpg|GIF Files (*.gif)|*.gif";

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.

    Regards,
    Dess
