Hi,

I am able to use the Paste Context Menu only if the items are copied from the RadFile Explorer.

What do I need to do if I want to paste items into the RadFile Explorer window that are copied outside from the File Explorer(i.e., from my desktop or something...)?

Hi Murali,

This is expected behavior. Due to security reasons the browser and the JavaScript engine do not allow to access the file system and the clipboard of the client computer. For that reason we cannot implement and provide the requested copy / paste from Hard disk feature.

Iif you paste for example some image file from an external location such as your local hard drive or the clipboards, there is no way to automatically upload the image file to the server and therefore making this image accessible via the web and HTTP protocol.

The automatic file upload to the server is not possible with javascript code, because the Javascript engine cannot access the local file system due to the security restrictions of the browser.

The only possible way to achieve your goal is to use ActiveX control or some other software, installed on the client, but the ActiveX components are forbidden by the corporate networks and requires approval from the client for installation.

Kind regards,
