The RadFileExplorer provides an OnClientLoad
event, which you can use.
In this event you can easily get access to the treeview by using its client-side get_tree
method - and proceed further by using the RadTreeView to achieve what you need. E.g.
function OnClientLoad(sender, args)
var tree = sender.get_tree();
//TODO: Proceed further with implementing your code
