In my application I need to load, edit, and save edited images that are not part of the web site running the page that contains the RadImageEditor. Note that the images are on the same web SERVER as the page running RadImageEditor, but they are on a different web SITE.

It appears that the ImageURL property only accepts a path that is relative to the web site running the applicaition/page
 (at least by default).  Otherwise, an error is thrown.  In my case, the error looks something like this:

Exception type: System.Web.HttpException
Message: 'http://pictures.mywebsite.com/001/graphics/DSC00752.JPG' is not a valid virtual path.
Stack trace:    at System.Web.Util.UrlPath.CheckValidVirtualPath(String path)
   at System.Web.Util.UrlPath.Combine(String appPath, String basepath, String relative)
   at System.Web.VirtualPath.Combine(VirtualPath relativePath)
   at System.Web.UI.Control.ResolvePhysicalOrVirtualPath(String path, VirtualPath& virtualPath, String& physicalPath)
   at System.Web.UI.Control.MapPathSecure(String virtualPath)
   at Telerik.Web.UI.RadImageEditor.GetCurrentEditableImage()
   at Telerik.Web.UI.RadImageEditor.ApplyClientOperations()
   at Telerik.Web.UI.RadImageEditor.ControlPreRender()
   at Telerik.Web.UI.RadWebControl.OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
   at System.Web.UI.Control.PreRenderRecursiveInternal()
   at System.Web.UI.Control.PreRenderRecursiveInternal()
   at System.Web.UI.Control.PreRenderRecursiveInternal()
   at System.Web.UI.Control.PreRenderRecursiveInternal()
   at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

How can I access (load/edit/save) images in RadImageEditor that are outside the relative path?

Thanks.

Hi Dan,

At present, RadImageEditor cannot work with physical paths for images.

However, in the upcoming release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX will will introduce support for custom content providers (using the same approach as RadFileExplorer) for RadImageEditor and this will allow the control to work with various storage types.

In addition, we are targeting the release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q3 2011 to be in the middle of November.

Hi Dan,

The ImageEditor now supports Custom content providers and you could find more information on how to implement such in the following help article: Using a Custom Image Provider.
