    Dear Support,

    I am just about to finalize the RAD controls for our Web App. Its been really a great trial period. I was hooked onto the File Explorer of it. Its an awesome control.

    I have tried implementing it with some customizations of ours. The screenshot is attached. It uses the File Explorer in a Tab Strip control, and i am trying to provide the feature where by i can open multiple file in different tabs.

    I had few queries  here:

    1. On double clicking an Image File i want to open it in a New Tab.

    2. On Clicking New on the toolbar (which is a custom toolbutton), i want to open a new tab  with the RADEditor and make that Tab selected.

    3.On a Custom Toolbar button click (Server Side) i want to have a reference to the File Item selected in the Grid.

    I tried to implement the above 3 points, but was not able to get my head around it
    It will be really appreciable if you can give me the code for doing the above in a sample project.

    In general, we do not provide custom solutions (as this is out of the scope of our support services), but I believe that the guidelines below will be of help.
    1. In order to intercept the double click on an image file you need to assign a handler to the OnClientFileOpen of RadFileExplorer, e.g.:
      <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" OnClientFileOpen="OnClientFileOpen">
          <Configuration ViewPaths="~/Files" DeletePaths="~/Files" UploadPaths="~/Files" />
      <script type="text/javascript">
          function OnClientFileOpen(oExplorer, args)
              var item = args.get_item();//get reference to the clicked item
              var itemPath = item.get_path();//get path to the clicked item
              var itemExt = item.get_extension();//get extenstion of the clicked item
              if (itemExt)
                  args.set_cancel(true);//cancel the default execution
                  //implement opening of the new tab
    2. Please find an example on how to add custom button to the RadFileExplorer's toolbar in the following help article:
      Adding a custom button to the toolbar and an item to the tree context menu
    3. I believe this KB article will be of help for this requirement.

    Also, in the following help articles you can find examples on how to create new RadTab / RadPageView at the client-side:
