    Hi Telerik,

    I would like to request that you add a "Finder" style view for selecting files and folders.  Specifically, one that looks similar to the following:

    http://cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/set-column-view-size-default-mac-os-x-finder.jpg

    So that each level of a path is displayed as a vertical column.  This makes navigating multiple hierarchies much easier.

     

    Also, I'd like to request that you also expose the dialogs as controls so that I can use them in different ways in my app.

    Hi Tony,

    When designing architecture of the dialogs, our main priority was to be absolutely consistent with the Microsoft dialogs, not only functional but also visual. For that reason will be difficult to add such style view for selecting files and folders. We will consider your proffer but I can not guarantee that will be approved. My advice is to try to achieve the desired behavior through modifying the template. 

    About your second question, can you confirm that this feature request is what you want?

    Yep!  That feature is exactly what I'm looking for.  Please let me know when it is available.
