I am using the Image Editor and an override of StoreBitmap().
Is there a way to find out the original name of the image being edited?
I don't care about what the user would type into the "Save As" box.
Is there also a way to hide or disable that box?

Hi Derek,

You can get the file name including the suffix _thumb (ImageName_thumb) from the second URL parameter of the StoreBitmap method

public override string StoreBitmap(System.Drawing.Bitmap bitmap, string url, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat format)
{
    return base.StoreBitmap(bitmap, url, format);
}


After that you can replace the suffix with an empty string using String.Replace and get the original image name.

To hide the Save As field, register the external dialogs of RadEditor and modify the content of the ImageEditor.ascx file. You can find more information in this live demo: Customize Built-in Dialogs.

The user is able to type anything they want into the "Save As" box however.
If they changed it, I would not have the original filename.

For example, I chose to Edit "test.jpg" then I crop it and save as "cropped.jpg"
StoreBitmap() only knows about "Cropped.jpg", right?

How do find "test.jpg"?  Is that knowable?

I guess I'm basically looking for "Save" functionality, not "Save As".

Hi Derek,

From your initial post I got the impression that you plan to hide the "Save As" box in the Image Editor and I provided instructions how to do that, e.g.

1) Enable the external editor's dialogs
2) Open the EditorDialogs/ImageEditor.ascx file
3) Locate the <tr> element holding the Save As box and hide the whole <tr>, e.g.

<tr style="display:none;">
    <td>
        <input type="hidden" id="OriginalImageLocation" name="OriginalImageLocation" />
        <div style="padding: 4px 0">
            <label for="NewImageName">
                <script type="text/javascript">
                    document.write(localization["SaveAs"]);
                </script>
            </label><br />
            <input type="text" id="NewImageName" name="NewImageName" style="margin-left: 4px; width: 260px;" /><span id="NewImageExt">&nbsp;</span>
        </div>
    </td>
</tr>

4) Save the ImageEditor.ascx file.

After hiding this box the user will be unable to change the image name and you can easily strip the _thumb suffix.

I hope this helps.

Hi Derek,

You can either put an ID selector class (#NewImageName) inside style tags in the ImagEditor.ascx file or import an external css file with this class in all editor's dialogs through the DialogsCssFile of RadEditor.
