Thank you for your kind words first.
Currently we do not support opening the RadFile/Folder dialogs in non-modal way. We can log this as a feature request. However, before proceeding with this, we would like to know more about your scenario. For example, since you need to put the dialog in Docking, do you need the close/minimize buttons at all ? If no, haw does this sound to you - we can log a feature request for using the content of the File Dialogs as a standalone controls. Currently you can consider the OpenFileDialog as a RadWindow whose content is an 'ExplorerControl' which includes all the stuff that you actually need - BreadCrumb, NavigationTree, MainPanel, SearchPanel
, Ok / Cancel buttons. Do you think standalone usage of this control (without creating an OpenFileDialog instance) + overriding the OK/Cancel commands will match your requirements completely ?
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
