    Hi, I'm connecting to an Oracle database, where I have the Documents table and the Sections table.. I'd like to use the file explorer to show on the left the Section names as folder with the treeview and on the right the Documents related to that section

    Is that possibile?

    Hi Christina,

    By design RadFileExplorer can work only with paths to files and folders placed inside the applciation's root directory. In order to implement the desired scenario you will need to implement a custom FileBrowserContentProvider which allows for different file sources to be used in the RadFileExplorer control.

    If you find it useful, you can use the SQL provider implemented by us as a base for your own implementation: Connect RadFileExplorer or RadEditor to a SQL database
    There is also a live demo with the above content provider implemented, where you can test its behavior:
