    The new dialogs look really sweet.  I wonder if you can control the source for the two navigation panes?  

    I run an application written with RadWPF on Citrix at a datacentre and we secure the folder structure with active directory but the standard MS dialogs show the full folder structure (all the users filesystem) of the Xen server then you get an access denied message when you try to browse directories you don't have access to.  If there was scope to control what the is loaded as the source for the navigation it would make my software look better as the standard active directory denied loop always felt very clunky.

    Hello Simeon,

    Thank you for your interest and kind words regarding RadFileDialogs. It's a nice feature request to filter or provide custom ItemsSource to the navigation tree or breadcrumb. We logged it in our portal where you can vote for it and track its status.

    FileDialogs: Make possible to override the ItemsSources of the navigation tree and navigation breadcrumb

    Currently it's only possible to filter these control via the UI. You can find this implemented in the attached project.
