    Hi

    I'm looking to use RichTextEditorRibbonBar and RichTextEditor for some simple WP functionality in our VB.NET application. 

    Is there a way of specifying the default folder for File | Open from the Ribbon bar? Can't see anywhere to set it.
    Also, would any solution apply to the Save/Save As dialogs. I want to force user to start in a specific folder.

    Regards,

    Lee.

    Hello Lee,

    Can you please confirm which product of ours are you using - Telerik UI for WinForms or Telerik UI for WPF? You have posted in the WPF product, mentioning WinForms control and it is hard for us to understand.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Hi Stefan,

    Sorry - it's UI for WinForms that we're using.

    Hi Lee,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    I have checked this case and it seems that currently it is not possible to access the dialog in order to change its properties. Hence, I have logged this case in our feedback portal: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/151318-improve-radrichtexteditor-add-property-to-expose-the-openfiledialog-of-the-ope. Make sure you cast your vote for it in order to increase its priority.

    I hope that you find this useful.

    Hi Stefan

    Thanks for that - thats a real shame as we use the system in a hosted solution so would be very useful to drive the user to a pre-defined folder to open/save documents.

    What is the initial default folder used by the OpenDialog?

    Regards,

    Lee

    Hello,

    I do understand the inconvenience and we will provide access to the dialog, in a future release.

    Meanwhile, the initial path is determined by the dialog. Here you can find more information about this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.filedialog.initialdirectory(v=vs.110).aspx.

    I hope this helps.
