    Hi I have a few questions about the file explore control,
    firstly I looked a the online examples and in the getting started section it shows a section of the properties that allow you set to viewpath, deletepath ect but in my properties window in VS 2012 these are not there.

    The config property is there and set to Telerik.Web.UI.FileManagerDialogConfiguration but it is not expandable, when i got to the page with the control the file explorer is there but does not work.

    Am I missing something?

    secondly is it possible to use this control like a file selection dialog, basically I would like a user to navigate to a folder on the server select 1 or more files then press a button on the page that would do a post back so in VB code i could find what files where selected so i could use them?

    Hi Mark,

    I have already answered your support ticket on the subject, but for your convenience I am pasting my answer here as well:

    The View/Uplaod/Delete paths has to be set to its Configuration inner tag, so in the Properties window you could find them under the names (view screenshot):
     - Configuration-ViewPaths
    - Configuration-DeletePaths
    - Configuration-UploadPaths

    Regarding your second concern - yes, you could use the FileExplore to browse files from your server. For example, you could access the selected item value by attaching a handler to the FileExplorer's
    OnClientItemSelected Client event. You could see a way to take the selected value's name/path in the following help article: Client-side events.

    In addition, I would like to add that there is a live implementation of a File selector and you could see it in this live demo: File Selector Dialog.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
