    When I double-click on a file to download it, an empty RadWindow appears.  How to I either prevent this from appearing, or close if after the download begins/finishes?

    If you take a look at this demo it shows how to force direct downloading - which should take care of the RadWindow problem. It would seem that this javascript is what handles everything when you have defined the onclientfileopen event.

    function OnClientFileOpen(oExplorer, args) 
       var item = args.get_item(); 
       args.set_cancel(true); //this prevents the window from opening 
       var docLoc = "Handler.ashx?path=" + item.get_url(); 
       document.location = docLoc; 

    That function is just a re-write of the one provided in the demo with all of the checking removed. It will force a download as well so perhaps you just need to use the args.set_cancel(true); line depending on your implementation.

    Hi Adam,

    In addition to what Carl wrote, I'd like to add that the RadFileExplorer features a property (true by default) -
    EnableOpenFile (on doubleclick). You can examine the way it behaves in the default demo:

    One thing you could do - other than using the provided JavaScript - is set this property to false.
