Hi,

We are using the RAD Editor (5.7.1) integrated in our Sharepoint (2007) portal and it appears that by default the image manager displays image libraries from the current site and the current site collection. But the users are asking fo the same behavior as the OOTB image upload dialog which let the users to browse to any site from the current site collection.

I've been reading the help about the Image manager here: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/image_manager.html

So I tried to add the following in my ConfigFile.xml: 
<property name="ImagesPaths">
  <item>/</item>
</property>

But when the Image Manager shows up it displays an error message "Not Found" instead of the tree view.

Am I missing something ? How can I make the Image Manager work like the OOTB one ?

Kind regards,

Hi S├ębastien Nunes,

In the following article you can find information on the ImageManager functionality http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/image_manager.html . There is described how to configure ImagesPaths and ImagesFilters properties of the RadEditor.

Here is some additional information on how the ImagesPaths collection works.

By default, all the libraries from the current site are included in the ImagePaths collection.

When you set path starting without slash (e.g. "ImagesLibrary"), you will refer a local library - library from the current Web. If you set path staring with slash (e.g. /ImagesLibrary), you will refer a library from the SiteCollection (root).

For example:
SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary
SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary

Lets  open the SubSite1 ConfigFile.xml and set the following images path:
<property name="ImagesPaths">
  <item>ImagesLibrary</item>
</property>
The ImageManager will load the SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary. 

If you set the path with slash the ImageManager will open the SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary e.g. 
<property name="ImagesPaths">
  <item>/ImagesLibrary</item>
</property>

Also you should know that if you set e library such as SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary, the currently logged user should have at least reading rights for all site collections of the path. Otherwise the ImagesLibrary will not appear in the ImageMangager dialogue.

With the ImageManager provided by Telerik you can browse only images from the current site collection. Unfortunately there is no way of how to achieve the same functionality as the OOB dialog. However you can configure the editor to use the OOB dialog instead the one provided by Telerik. In order to do this you need to modify the respective ToolsFile.xml or ListToolsFile.xml, which are located in the /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/ folder.
Replace
<tool name="ImageManager" shortcut="CTRL+G" />
with
<tool name="MOSSImageManager" shortcut="CTRL+G" />



All the best,

Thanks for your answer.

We'll use the MOSS Image Manager then...

That's a pity as the Telerik Image Manager dialog looks much better.
