    We would like to use the RadFileExplorer in a classic asp.net web application and connect it to a Sharepoint server and its libraries.

    Is this possible with the ASP.NET RAD controls? If so, is there a page somewhere to see an example (from what I understand from the MOSS pages this should be just a couple of lines, right?).

    Thank you

    Thanks, but I had seen this blog and it is about using FileExplorer from within Sharepoint.

    My need is for a classic asp.net web site containing a FileExplorer and which is connected to a Sharepoint document library. 

    Such configuration requires that somewhere I can indicate the Sharepoint library url and credentials. And it requires that the content provider connects to Sharepoint via web services. This is, I guess, a requirement since my Sharepoint doesn't sit on the same server as the web site.

    Hello Stephan,

    The default content provider, that ships with the RadFileExplorer controls will only work with files in the current web application. In your scenario you need to build your own FileBrowserContentProvider that will allow you to connect the RadFileExplorer control to the desired data store. I recommend you check this blog post that provides links to several already implemented providers. You can use them as a reference when you build your own.

    I hope this helps.
