    I am thinking of using RadEditor in a SharePoint environment and have these questions:

    • Is it possible to map the roots directories of document, image and media managers to a specific document library of a SharePoint environment so these files can be managed also through SharePoint?
    • Does this work in MOSS and WSS?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Benno,

    Up to the questions:
    • In order to set the Image Manager to load the images from a specific image library you need to modify the ConfigFile.xml which is located in the following folder:

      /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/

      For example you can set the ImagesPaths property here:

      <property name="ImagesPaths">

      The same approach is used when setting FlashPaths, DocumentsPaths, MediaPaths etc. properties. If these properties are not set, by default RadEditor will load all local libraries (local to the current site).

      The current version of the MOSS RadEditor only supports accessing libraries from the current web. This means that parent and child sites will not be available in the Image Manager. If you wish, you can switch to using the default MOSS asset picker for images, which can access the libraries in the whole site collection. To do this, open the editor's tools file (located at \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\\RadControls\Editor) and rename the ImageManager tool to MOSSImageManager.

    • Yes, this will work for MOSS and WSS.
