I have my FileExplorer nested in a RadWindow, but no matter what I try, I can't open folders?

I can create/delete a folder, but when I double click or right click>open, nothing happens? Therefore I don't think it's a rights issue, and I have had success moving the FileExplorer unchanged to an empty page outside any RadWindow, where I could open the folders no problem.

My code is:

    <telerik:RadWindow runat="server"  
        Width="800px" Height="541px" VisibleStatusbar="false" 
        ID="winFileExplorer" Modal="true" Behaviors="Close" 
        Title="Select image"
            <div class="floatr" style="width:210px;"
                <div class="c"><asp:Image ID="imgPreview" runat="server" style="margin:10px 0;max-width:180px;max-height:500px;" /></div
            <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="fileExplorer" runat="server"  
                Width="570" TreePaneWidth="150"  
                ExplorerMode="Default" VisibleControls="ContextMenus,Toolbar,Grid" DisplayUpFolderItem="true" 
                EnableOpenFile="true" EnableCreateNewFolder="true" 
                OnClientItemSelected="OnClientItemSelected" OnClientFileOpen="OnFileOpen"

Paths are set server-side, but there's no change if I put them in directly. What could be wrong??

Hi Buffer,

We are aware of such behavior and it is caused by the fact that the RadWindow calls DataBind method of its child elements. We will change this behavior, however, in order to avoid such calls, but the changes will be available in the next official release of the controls (scheduled for the middle of July). For the time being I recommend you to move the RadFileExplorer to an external page and open the page using the RadWindow's NavigateUrl property.

I hope this helps.

All the best,
the Telerik team
