    I am developing the RadFileExplorer Custom Provider in order to show network files. My problem is that tree view on the left side is refreshing but on the right panel folders are not updating. I can see only the main root folders but not inside in that.

    Kindly Help

    Hi Muhammad,

    The described behavior could be experienced when FileExplorer cannot access the pointed viewpaths. This means the control creates root directories with the passed names, but is not able to list the folder  content.

    The reason for such a behavior usually is:
    • either the viewpaths/mapping to the desired folders are not set properly
    • or the application does not have enough permissions to access the desired paths. You cans ee how to test the permissions here: Troubleshooting

    In case non of the above is the case, though, we will need to examine your custom provider in order to provide any further help. A sample fully runnable project reproducing the issue will be of great help in solving the case.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for your reply...

    Let me give you the code, I am sure you will find the solution. I am using Rad File Explorer in SharePoint Web Part as User Control.

    Following is the HTML and Code Behind Part. The Property Explorer Mode when i changed it to Default, I am facing the issue that right pane is not refreshing but when i change the property from Default to TreeView, than files will enumerate but Right Pane disappears(which makes sense) but i want the default mode with right pane refreshing. I have written a custom Provider, 

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Web;

    Hi Muhammad,

    The latest moment of the page life-cycle when the paths of FileExplorer (ViewPaths/UploadPaths/DeletePAths) can be configured is the Page_Load event. Could you verify that you are not setting them later than that?

    The other thing that you should pay attention is that when working with impersonation, you have to also make sure that used handlers has proper permissions. If you are using a general handler with your content provider (like the one provided by us in this help article) you have to make sure that is is is added to the <location> section of the web.config. In this way the handler will be excluded from the authentication rules and all requests to it will have the correct permissions. The same thing applies to the Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd handler:
    <location path="FileSystemHandler.ashx" allowOverride="true">
        <system.web>
           <authorization>
                <allow roles="*"/>
            </authorization>
        </system.web>
    </location>
    <location path="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd" allowOverride="true">
       <system.web>
         <identity impersonate="true" userName="HostingServer\userName" password="userPassword"/>
         <authorization>
           <allow users="*"/>
         </authorization>
       </system.web>
     </location>

    If non of the above helps in solving the case, though, we will need to run a sample project and debug it locally and provide any further assistance.
