    The online demo here do not include the file: "Explorer.aspx" used by RadWindow.

    I cannot see any property like "DialogMode=FileSelector" on the control itself.

    Have anyone tried to setup the "File Selector Dialog" example, and made it work?

    Ok, found a solution like this:


    <script type="text/javascript">  
        function OnFileSelected(fileSelected) {  
            var textbox = $get(currentInputID);  
            textbox.value = fileSelected;  
        var currentInputID = null;  
        function OpenFileExplorerDialog(inputID) {  
            var wnd = $find("<%= ExplorerWindow.ClientID %>");  
            currentInputID = inputID;  

    <telerik:RadWindow runat="server" Width="530px" Height="550px" VisibleStatusbar="false" 



    NavigateUrl="Explorer.aspx" ID="ExplorerWindow" Modal="true" Behaviors="Close,Move">









    <asp:TextBox ID=

    "UrlLink" runat="server" MaxLength="512" Width="400px" TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="4" Text='<%# Bind("Url") %>'></asp:TextBox>  

    <input type="button" onclick="OpenFileExplorerDialog('<%#Container.FindControl("UrlLink").ClientID %>'); return false;" value="Søg dokumenter..." /> 


    <script type="text/javascript">  
    function OnClientFileOpen(sender, args) {  
        var item = args.get_item();  
        if (item && !item.isDirectory()) {  
    function GetRadWindow() {  
        var oWindow = null;  
        if (window.radWindow) oWindow = window.radWindow;  
        else if (window.frameElement.radWindow) oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;  
        return oWindow;  
        <form id="form1" runat="server">  
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">  
            <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" Configuration-ViewPaths="~/uploads/d1" OnClientFileOpen="OnClientFileOpen">  
                <Configuration SearchPatterns="*.*"></Configuration>

    Hessner, thanks a lot for posting that.
    Telerik people - Im sure it would help people if you updated the demo to include what should be in Example.aspx.

    I have just one update to Hessner's code. If you use it then the function in the calling file should take only one parameter - the string value of the file.

    So it should be:
    //This function is called from the Explorer.aspx page 
            function OnFileSelected(fileSelected) 
                var textbox = $get("<%= fileName.ClientID %>"); 
                textbox.value = fileSelected

    Not this (as it is in the example page:
    //This function is called from the Explorer.aspx page 
            function OnFileSelected(wnd, fileSelected) 
                var textbox = $get("<%= fileName.ClientID %>"); 
                textbox.value = fileSelected

    Hello Christopher,

    The files that are used in that demo (same holds true for every demo on our site) are available in the Example Source Code & Description section. To view the aspx files, just click on the button next to the default aspx page. The codebehind files can be accessed in the same way.

    All the best,

    This is not so obvious in the new demo site. The little down arrow that used to be next to the file name is no longer there so you will only discover it if you mouse over the filename.

    Could we have the little down arrow back please? I wasted a good half an hour trying to get the code for the explorer.aspx file without realising that it was already available on the demo page.

    Hi Myke,

    Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention.

    Actually, "the little down arrow" should be there but the image is missing from the page by some reason. I have logged this issue in our database, and we will handle fix it as soon as possible. Please excuse us for the inconvenience.

    As a small token of gratitude I have updated your Telerik points.
