The desired functionality should be available in RadFileExplorer if the delete permissions to the Root directory are configured properly. You can test this on our online demos, where the root Images directory has set full permissions - video
. Can you, please provide the exact markup where the issue so we could examine it further?
Note, that the Delete
button of the FileExplorer's toolbar will not be enabled unless a file in the Grid is selected, because otherwise the control will try to delete the currently selected in the tree folder (the root directory in this case). If this is the behavior you would like to avoid - I am afraid that this is a part of the design of FileExplorer and cannot be manipulated.
