    Hi All,

    I am working on upgrading from older version of RadEditor and have a problem with image uploading.

    The way it used to work in old version, once the image is uploaded, it would always end up first on the top of the file list and editors would have no problem selecting it.
    In new version of RadEditor, images are sorted by file name by default and also paged. Problem is, with many images in the folder, the uploaded image would end up on some random page in file list and is hard to find.

    Is there any way around it?

    Thanks,

    Andrey

    Hi Andrey,

    The only thing that you can currently do is to disable the grid paging, but this is not recommended if you load many images.

    To do this configure RadEditor to use its external dialogs, open the EditorDialogs/FileBrowser.ascx file, locate the RadFileExplorer control and set AllowPaging to false, e.g.

    <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" Height="450px" Width="400px" TreePaneWidth="150px"
     runat="Server" EnableOpenFile="false" AllowPaging="false" />

    Another idea is to rename the files when uploaded and attach the date to the file name. This KB article will show you how to implement a FileSystemContentProvider and override the StoreFile function in which you can rename the uploaded files: Retrieving the size of the uploaded file(s) and restricting file upload.

    Hi

    We are getting complaints from our customers that this is effectively a downgrade as the image is no longer automatically selected after uploading and they then have to trawl through the file list to find the image to insert.

    Ideally we do not want to remove the paging as they have a vast amount of images uploaded and changing the filenames by adding the date as you suggested is unfortunately not an option.

    Could you possibly add this functionality back in via one of the following suggestions?

    1) Highlight and position the files just uploaded to the top of the file list, even when paging is on
    2) Add a Date Modified column so that files can be sorted by date which will provide a means to see the newest files first
    3) Highlight all the files just uploaded if paging is off

    Thanks
    Guy

    Hi Guy,

    Thank you for your feature request. They are already logged in our ToDo list for consideration.

    Since I am unable to provide a firm estimate which one of them will be implemented and when, you can try to implement the Date sorting yourself.

    You can see how to sort the items in the grid in this KB article: Sorting RadFileExplorer items by name.
    You can find a solution for your request in this forum thread: How to add a time column to DialogOpener window?

    Do you have any news regarding this feature request?

    If not, are you able to give me a rough estimate as to when it will be reviewed?

    Thanks

    Hi Guy,

    Your feature request is logged in our PITS system with ID: 3083. It is public and everyone can vote and increase its priority in our ToDo list.

    The priority of the item is currently low and the chance of being implemented for Q3 2010 is not good.  That is why my suggestion is to try the provided resources in my earlier message to implement the needed date-time sorting:

    I think without this feature, this renaming feature is useless. this feature is not fair without feature of  focusing/highlighting/thumbnail show.
    I don't know why you need votes to launch this feature. As its the basic need of the renaming feature(should be embedded)..

    Hi,

    I think that the feature should be embedded as well. However as my colleague explained there are features in our queue with higher priority. This is the reason, why I can not give you an exact estimation of when the functionality will be implemented. In mean time you can use the information provided by Rumen to customize the editor.

    All the best,
