    I've got DropBox installed on Windows.  When I look at Windows Explorer, I see it as a top-level node, alongside "This PC" and "Quick Access"

    Is there any way to incorporate this into the Telerik File/Folder dialogs and RadPathPicker?

    Hello Joe,

    What I can suggest is to manually get the location of the DropBox folder and add it to the Custom Places collection of the file dialog control. Here's an example of how you can find the DropBox directory.

    As for achieving this in the RadFilePathPicker control, you can handle its DialogOpening event and either add the custom directory as proposed in the previous paragraph, or open a native windows dialog as demonstrated in this article.

    Please let me know whether such an approach would work for you.
