    I am having trouble getting this to work i looked into loading flash videos from the database and adding them to a virtual forlder where they can be choose from. 

    I've looked at :

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/dbfilebrowsercontentprovider/defaultcs.aspx
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-custom-filebrowsercontentprovider.html
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/radfileexplorer-custom-filebrowsercontentprovider.html
    http://www.telerik.com/community/code-library/aspnet-ajax/file-explorer/connect-radfileexplorer-or-radeditor-to-a-sql-databse.aspx


    I have put everything in my sharepoint application, and i get no errors but, the implementation that i have is not reading the database, it skips the overrides and goes straight to the default methods. 

    I am guessing it has to do with adding the handlers ahxs files to the project, but i am not sure how to do it in the sharepoint projec, where is a good place to add them? 

    also I am working with the Sharepoint RadEditor
    http://sharepoint.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/Pages/RadEditor-for-SharePoint.aspx

    I hope this is not part of the problem. 

    Thanks

    After much playing around and trying to find some information about hits I've decided to go with an alternative method. I have a couple of things i wanna accomplish which i don't even know if its possible. 

    - Be able to interact with the DB and create a virtual navigation to let users add/remove (.flv) videos
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/dotnetnuke/skin-objects/radeditor-add-a-video-thought-flv-feature.aspx is as close what i could find when trying to get this to work, the problem with hat is that it is client side, and all my handlers are server side

    I am using the Sharepoint RadEditor as a controller of its own, not as a webpart, which might be part of the reason why the documentation and class overrides i had was not working. if anyone has played with the Sharepoint editor, I would appreciate the help.

    Hi Daniel,

    At present, RadEditor for SharePoint can only work with its built-in content provider which works with the SharePoint database and libraries.
    We will try to provide the ability to use RadEditor's dialogs with different content providers in the future, but I cannot provide firm estimate for when this will be available.

    Hi Dobromir,

    Thanks for your response.
    I am sorry to hear that this is not possible.  This functionality would have been very helpful.  
    For now I am working in an alternative to 
    combine content from sharepoint with some outside content (videos) stored in database.

    I really hope it is implemented in the next release of the product. 

    Regards, 
    Daniel
