    Hi Chris,

    There is no property for that behavior, but you can achieve the desired result by using the following client-side approach:
    • attach a handler to the OnClientLoad event of the RadFileExplorer event
    • get reference to the embedded RadWindowManager object
    • attach a handler to the OnClientshow event of the newly opened RadWindows, by using the client-side API of the RadWindowManager
    • implement a code into the OnClientShow handler in order to hide the checkbox from the upload window
    The complete code should looks like the follows :

    <script type="text/javascript"
        var oFileExplorer; 
        function OnExplorerLoad(oExplorer, args) 
            oFileExplorer = oExplorer; 
            var oWinManager = oExplorer.get_windowManager(); // get the window manager 
            oWinManager.add_show(openRadWindow); // Attach event handler to the newly opened windows 
        function openRadWindow(oWindow, args) 
            if (oWindow.get_id() == "fileExplorerUpload"
                var chkBoxID = oFileExplorer.get_id() + "_chkOverwrite"// Build the ID of the checkbox 
                var checkBox = document.getElementById(chkBoxID); 
                checkBox.style.display = "none";// Hide the check box 
                checkBox.nextSibling.style.display = "none"// Hide the text next to the checkbox ; 

    I suggest that client approach, because the RadFileExplorer1.Upload.ControlObjectsVisibility server property does not accept the passed values. We assign value to this property in a later stage of the RadFileExplorer's life cycle and this cause that behavior.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,

    if (oWindow.get_id() == "fileExplorerUpload")  
    this condition should be fixed this way I guess

    if (oWindow.get_id() == oFileExplorer.get_windowManager().get_id() + "fileExplorerUpload")
