How do I do this?
I have a website that requires a username and password in order to access the site. The name of the user that logs in determines which treeview node in the left-hand pane of FileExplorer receives focus. Basically in OnLoadComplete() I have:
    userNode.Selected = true;
This does select the correct node immediately after the user logs in, but the right-hand pane of FileExplorer displays the files and folders that are associated with the root node, instead of displaying the files and folders of the selected node. How do I get the right-hand pane to display the content (files and folders) that are associated with the programmatically selected node, instead of displaying the content of the root node?

Thank you

Hi Brian,

If I understand you correctly, you need to load initial folder according the logged user. To do so, you need to set RadFileExplorer's InitialPath property.

Please see the following live demo for more information:

OK, so I was already setting InitialPath in the page load, but it was being set to the root folder. By setting it to the user's folder instead, that resolved my issue, and it was no longer necessary for me to use the userNode.Selected = true;

Thank you.
