    All,

    I'm trying to turn on the media manager for use in the telerik control - and it appears no matter what I do when I select the media manager in the control - even though - I have some files which meet the filter requirements - I don't see any media to add. Therefore, to date to turn this item on I've edited:

    RadControls\Editor\ConfigFile.xml so it has the following items in it - the files/uploads/media path does exist and it has the proper permissions for the website user:

    <property name="MediaPaths">
      <item>~/files/uploads/Media</item>
     </property>
     <property name="UploadMediaPaths">
      <item>~/files/uploads/Media</item>
     </property>
     <property name="DeleteMediaPaths">
      <item>~/files/uploads/Media</item>
     </property>
     <property name="MediaFilters">
      <item>*.avi</item>
      <item>*.mpeg</item>
      <item>*.mpg</item>
      <item>*.mov</item>
     </property>

    I also edited the ToolsFile.xml so this property is enabled (it was commeneted out at one time)

     <tool name="MediaManager"/>

    Therefore, any guidance on how to get this to work would be great.

    Hello,

    Could you please specify whether you are using RadEditor Classic (RadEditor.[Net2].dll) or RadEditor for SharePoint 2007/2010?

    In addition, try to delete/comment the MediaFilters property

    <property name="MediaFilters">
      <item>*.avi</item>
      <item>*.mpeg</item>
      <item>*.mpg</item>
      <item>*.mov</item>
     </property>

    and see whether the files in the folder will be listed.

    Best regards,
    Rumen

    We're running the RadEditor Classic (RadEditor.[Net2].dll)

    Additionally, - I commented out the media filters property and all I get is a blank media manager screen (which I've attached)

    Thus my ConfigFile.xml looks as such:

    <property name="MediaPaths">
      <item>~/files/uploads/Media</item>
     </property>
     <property name="UploadMediaPaths">
      <item>~/files/uploads/Media</item>
     </property>
     <property name="DeleteMediaPaths">
      <item>~/files/uploads/Media</item>
     </property>
     <!--<property name="MediaFilters">
      <item>*.avi</item>
      <item>*.mpeg</item>
      <item>*.mpg</item>
      <item>*.mov</item>
      <item>*.wmv</item>
     </property>
     -->

    Hi,

    Does the ConfigFile property of RadEditor point to the ~/RadControls/Editor/ConfigFile.xml file? This property is not set by default to point to this file and you should explicitly set it.

    If this does not work, open a support ticket and send a simple working project that demonstrates the issue.

    All the best,
