    I like the document manager functionalityfor uploading documents to a site.

     

    I also like the hyperlink manager functionalitywhich allows me to use the Hyperlink, anchor and email tabs.

     

    What I don't like is that I can't link toother document libraries in other sites in the same site collection without explicitlyspecifying those libraries URL's in the Rad configuration files. 

     

    So I'd like to replace the document managerlink JUST INSIDE the hyperlink manager window so that the user canuse all of the functionality telerik supplies but when he clicks the documentmanager icon (just inside the hyperlink manager window) he get's displayed withthe SharePoint default link manager. can I do that?

     

    kind of like using this <toolname="MOSSLinkManager" shortcut="CTRL+K" /> but onlyfrom within the hyperlink manager.

     

    how can I do that?

    Hello Atul,
    Review the following online help article ExternalDialogsPath property. There is explained how you can customize the editor's dialogs. RadControls installation now comes with an extra folder named EditorDialogs which contains the dialogs' ascx files. Since you are using RadEditor for MOSS here is what you can do.

    1. Copy LinkManager.ascx to the /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/ folder.
    2. Set the ExternalDialogsPath property to point to the folder.
    <property name="ExternalDialogsPath">/_wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources</property>
    3. Modify LinkManager.ascx so it will have the functionality that you need.

    Hi Stanimir,

    I am finding a solution to our problem and I find this similar to our case - modify hyperlink manager and add a label called 'pageID'.

    You have mentioned in your statement that "RadControls installation now comes with an extra folder named EditorDialogs which contains the dialogs' ascx files". I can't find the extra folder in our environment.

    We are currently using Telerik for MOSS. RadEditorMOSS.wsp is being deployed in our VPC. Would you know if there's a way for us to download EditoDialogs folder with dialogs ascx files?

    Background of the task is:
    We need to modify Hyperlink manager. That when a page is selected, property of that page such as 'pageID' will automatically be populated to a PageID label in Hyperlink manager. We will add 'pageID' attribute/property on the pages. We want to modify Hyperlink manager window and add PageID label that displays the 'pageID' property. After which, the pageID will be added to hyperlink's attribute on HTML display of telerik.

    Second question is it possible to display added 'pageID' label as attribute of hyperlink when viewed in HTML tab of telerik?

    Hello Telerik User,

    The EditorDialogs comes with the installation of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and not with RadEditor for MOSS. In order to get it you can go to the Downloads section under your account, click on the Visual Studio Extensions, DLLs, Scripts, Source Code, DNN and MOSS wrappers ... link and download the Manual Installation zip. Currently the name of the file is RadControls_for_ASP.NET_AJAX_2010_1_519_dev.zip. You can find the mentioned folder in this archive and you will not need to install the hole suite.

    Also what you can do is open an official support ticket and I will attach the required files in it. Just make sure that you notice the version of RadEditor for MOSS, which you are using. This way I will be able to provide you with a corresponding dialog .ascx file.


    Sincerely yours,
