Have a Fileexplorer getting the results from an FTP connection.  What I would like to do is set the selected/highlighted item from the value that will be returned in a SQL Dataset.  

For example if FileExplorer currently has FileA, FileB, FileC, FileD listed and the database says for this record use FileB, well FileB is selected.

Also how do I add the value someone upload's so it can go into the database?

            <telerik:RadFileExplorer RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="FileExplorer1" Width="520px" Height="200px" EnableCopy="true" ExplorerMode="FileTree">


            Dim paths As String() = New String() {"/"}
            FileExplorer1.Configuration.ViewPaths = paths

            Dim deletePaths As String() = New String() {"/", "/"}
            FileExplorer1.Configuration.DeletePaths = deletePaths

            Dim uploadPaths As String() = New String() {"/", "/"}
            FileExplorer1.Configuration.UploadPaths = uploadPaths

            'The "ROOT/CanDelAndUpload/" folder Is configured with full permissions
            FileExplorer1.Configuration.ContentProviderTypeName = GetType(FtpContentProvider).AssemblyQualifiedName

Hello Kurt,

You can set the initially selected file in RadFileExplorer by passing the path to in to the control's InitialPath property:

You will just need to make sure that the passed path is the same like shown in the AddressBar of the control:


As per your second question, can you elaborate a bit on what exactly do you want to achieve? If you want to get the Uploaded file data you can handle the ItemCommand event of the control, which is thrown just before the uploaded file is saved:
