Hi there,

Our organization is using the FileExplorer control in one of our web applications for our end users to manage files.

There is a continuous request for being able to download all files from any given folder instead of downloading them one by one.

Does the latest version of FileExplorer support this feature? If not, is this on your roadmap for future releases?

Thanks,
Roger

Hi Roger,

Currently RadFileExplorer supports the downloading only of one file item as the browser needs to make a different request per each file.

A possible workaround for such scenario is to ZIP the selected files on the server and download that zip file through custom command in the GridContextMenu. A client of ours has shared hiw own solution for downloading multiple files, you can review it and see if it will be helpful for your here:

You can also take a look at the following RadZipLibrary approach and see if it will be helpulf for your needs:
