    I noticed that the File Explorer Control allows you to upload a file by right clicking on a folder, but you can right click on a folder other than the one currently selected.
    If you do so, the file will be uploaded to the selected folder rather than the one you right clicked on. This seems like a bug. If I have an option to perform an action by right clicking on an item, that action should be performed on the item that was clicked, whether it is the selected item or not.

    Using your client-side events example, select the Customers folder (Once you do so, it will be highlighted in blue.). Then right click on the Products folder and select upload. Upload a file and note the location it uploads into. It uploads into the Customers folder, not the Products folder as I would have expected.

    If I right click on the products folder and select upload, the document should be uploaded to the Products folder.

    Telerik, can you please advise on this issue.

    If i right click on a folder in windows explorer, it becomes the selected folder. It seems like that should be what happens in the file explorer.

    Hi Jim,

    By design, the "Upload" command in the context menu, opens the Upload dialog that will upload a file to the currently selected folder (that is shown in the RadFileExplorer's addressbar). Indeed, the current implementation of the control requires an item to be left-clicked in order to make the item currently selected one. For the time being, however, we do not plan to change this behavior.

    I hope this is not a showstopper for you.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
