    I wanted to select my E:\ Drive in OpenFolderDialog and selected it on the left side, like I always do in Windows default dialogs.

    Sadly this does not seem to be possible with your OpenFolderDialog. Instead, I had to click This Computer on the left side and select the drive on the right side.

    Could this be changed? Is there maybe an option for it I didn't saw?

    Thanks

    Hi Rolf,

    Thanks for your feedback. However we are not completely understanding the scenario you explained - can you provide video of the exact steps you mentioned?

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

    The classic windows OpenFileDialog/OpenFolderDialog - just as yours - consists of two areas:
    - The tree on the left, containing "This Computer" as well as all the hard drives, etc. and
    - The contents of the currently opened folder on the right

    While in the classic windows OpenFileDialog it is possible to just select eg. the hard drive "E:\" on the left side (the tree) and hit okay, in yours it is not possible because the left side seems to be only for navigation, but not for selection.

    So to select the "E:\"-Drive in your dialog, I first have to select "This Computer" in the tree on the left, so its contents (read: hard-drives) are shown on the right side. Only then I'm able to select the drive on the right side.

    This does not conform with the usual behaviour.

    So my question is: Are you going to fix it or am I missing an option alá "CanSelectFromTree" or whatnot.

    Thanks.

    Hello Rolf,

    Thanks for the further details. Indeed currently this scenario is not supported for our FileDialogs, so I will log it internally and we will definitely consider it for the official version of the dialogs. Meanwhile can you please confirm this behavior is only for the OpenFolderDialog as a hard drive cannot be selected using the OpenFileDialog (I'm asking because you mentioned OpenFileDialog in your previous reply)?

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you. I have updated your Telerik points for your feedback.
