Hello Samee,

The delete confirmation dialog box's content cannot be modified, but you can change the text that is shown by using the associated  localization files (.resx) . Three localization files come with the installation of the control - RadEditor.Dialogs.resx (default one - English), RadEditor.Dialogs.fr-FR.resx and RadEditor.Dialogs.de-DE.resx. The RadFileExplorer and RadEditor controls share the same localization files. In your case you need to change the value of the Common_ConfirmDelete key in the resource files to the desired string.

For the time being, the text that is shown inside the create new folder dialog's textbox ("NewFolder") cannot be changed, but we plan to add a new property that will allow developers to set this text in the RadFileExplorer's configuration. The create new folder dialog's title, however, can be changed by modifying the same .resx file(s) as described earlier and changing the value of the  Common_CreateNewFolder key.

I hope this helps.


Kind regards,
Fiko

Hello Samee,

In this case, you can use the RadFileExplorer's createNewDirectory method. For example:
<telerik:RadScriptBlock ID="RadScriptBlock1" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function addNewFolder()
        {
            var oExplorer = $find("<%= RadFileExplorer1.ClientID %>");
            // oExplorer.createNewDirectory(path, newName);
            oExplorer.createNewDirectory("/FileExplorer_/Northwind/Flowers", "Programmatically created folder");
        }
    </script>
</telerik:RadScriptBlock>

I hope this helps.

All the best,
Fiko

Is there an item in PITS about customizing texts in FileExplorer? I wanna vote for it :)

From what I understood, it's not possible now to provide multiply custom texts for FileExplorer, only the one I set in resources?

PS. Found in

http://www.telerik.com/products/aspnet-ajax/whats-new/release-history/q2-2009-sp1-version-2009-2-826.aspx

File explorer localization can now be updated (Localization.SetString(key,value))

And that worked in OnInit:
explorer.Localization.SetString ("Common_ConfirmDelete""Are you sure?"); 

Looks like the feature is already there :)

Hello Alexis,

You can change the texts in the NewFolder dialog using the RadFileExplorer's localization mechanism. Please review the following article for more information:

Hello, thanks for your answer.

I have changed the text:

<data name="Common_NewFolder" xml:space="preserve">
    <value>Nueva carpeta </value>
  </data>

in the RadEditor.Dialogs.resx, but it doesn´t have effect (see attach)

Hi Alexis,

Please excuse me for the misunderstanding. The default value of the new folder's name is not subject to localization. In order to change this value you need to set the corresponding RadFileExplorer's client-side property, e.g.:

<telerik:RadFileExplorer runat="server" ID="FileExplorer1" OnClientLoad="OnExplorerLoad">
    <Configuration ViewPaths="~/Files" UploadPaths="~/Files"
        DeletePaths="~/Files"></Configuration>
</telerik:RadFileExplorer>
 
<script>
    function OnExplorerLoad(explorer) {
        explorer.set_newFolderDefaultValue("CustomFolderName");
    }
</script>

How can I change the localization of the alert when I insert an invalid character in a RadFileExplorer dialog when I am creating a new folder?

 

Regards,

 

Alexis.

Hi Samee,

Unfortunately the target error message is not localized and the only way to change it is to overwrite the FileExplrorer's private _alertWrongFileNameInput method and pass the desired message directly to the tooltip (the commented line is the original part of the code):
<script>
    Telerik.Web.UI.RadFileExplorer.prototype._alertWrongFileNameInput = function (input)
    {
        var tooltip = this.get_tooltipControl();
        tooltip.set_targetControl(input);
        //tooltip.set_text(this.fileNameInvalidText + ":<br />" + this._getInvalidCharsToString());
        var customMessage = "Your custom message here";
        tooltip.set_text(customMessage);
        setTimeout(function() {
            tooltip.show();
        }, 100);
    }
</script>

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Vessy
