    I am evaluating the Telerik Control Suite for ASP.NET (AJAX).
    So far the usability has been outstanding! One thing is causing me grief, the initial view of the RadFileExplorer, the FileName Column is collapsed and the user won't be able to See it. I can expand the column manually, but I need the columns to show up when the control opens.

    I have a UserFolder which contains only 2 other folders, each of these folders contains files.

    thanks,

    Hello Carolus,

    I was not able to reproduce this behavior on my side. Could you please provide more information about the issue that you experience : maybe special sequence of reproduction steps, your browser version? Also, do you reproduce that behavior on our First Look online demo? It will be best, if you open a new support ticket and send us some screenshots of that behavior. Once we reproduce the issue, then we will be able to provide a solution for you.

    We are looking forward to hearing from you,

    It seems to happens when placing the control inside an AJAX Tab Control (TabContainer) frmo the Microsoft AJAX toolkit.

    <form id="form1" runat="server">  
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">  
        </asp:ScriptManager> 
        <div> 
            <cc1:TabContainer ID="TabContainer1" runat="server" ActiveTabIndex="0">  
                <cc1:TabPanel HeaderText="TabPanel1" ID="TabPanel1" runat="server">  
                    <ContentTemplate> 
                        <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" InitialPath="~\UserFolder\myData\" 
                            EnableCreateNewFolder="False" Skin="Vista" VisibleControls="TreeView, Grid, Toolbar" 
                            TreePaneWidth="180px">  
                            <Configuration SearchPatterns="*.csv,*.xml" UploadPaths="~\UserFolder" ViewPaths="~\UserFolder">  
                            </Configuration></telerik:RadFileExplorer> 
     
                    </ContentTemplate> 
                </cc1:TabPanel> 
            </cc1:TabContainer> 
        </div> 
        </form>

    Hi Carolus,

    Yes, we are aware of this problem when the control is used in AJAX scenarios and we will do our best to fix it in one of the following updates. For the time being the control can be used with postbacks only.


    All the best,

    I placed the Control inside the RadTabStrip control and it works. I am not sure why something in the RadControls for ASPNET AJAXQ1 2009 would not be AJAX friendly?

    Hi Carolus,

    RadFileExplorer is a complex control that manipulate files on the server. That is why we need to make sure that it is secure and safe to be used in Ajax environment which takes some time. Once we are ready, we will provide an update right away.

    I don't think you understood what I am saying. The RadFileExplorer was installed as poart of the RadControls ofr ASPNET AJAX Q1 2009 Download. Is my Toolbox in the VS2008 combining the Ajax and Regular controls?

    I guess I thought they were all AJAX friendly.
