    I am happy Telerik created these dialogs for aesthetic reasons.

    Is there a way to restrict access to file operations (Delete, copy, et. al.)?? I want to restrict file functions that can be performed via these dialogs. For example, I want to prevent someone from copying files from a USB when selecting a folder or selecting a file.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Jim

    Hello, Jim,

    As of R1 2020 SP1 all file dialogs and the ExplorerControl will offer the EditingOptions property. It determines how the files and folders in the ExplorerControl can be edited. Setting EditingOptions will determine which edit operations can be performed via keyboard keys and "NewFolder" button.

    The release is scheduled for this week. Once it is available in your Telerik account, the link to the following help article will be accessible: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/file-dialogs/features/editing-options 

    I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Hello Dess,

    That's wonderful! I'm trying to have a very secure application regardless of the administration environment. The ability to perform OS file functions in open folder/file dialogs was on my list of things to address. I had plans to create my own dialogs for the next release. So, this will definitely save me a lot of coding for the next release!

    Best Regards,

    Jim

    Hi, James,

    R1 2010 SP is now available for download in Telerik your account. Feel free to upgrade and give the EditingOptions a try to see how it would work for your case.

    Should you have further questions please let me know.
