Hi,

Please find a complete tutorial on how to modify the behavior of the default dialogs of RadFileExplorer in the following KB article:
Change the behaviors of the embedded dialogs

Also, if you want to disable the RadWindow popups and open the files using default browser windows you can use the following sample code:
<telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" OnClientFileOpen="OnClientFileOpen">
</telerik:RadFileExplorer>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientFileOpen(oExplorer, args)
    {
        //get the extension of the opened item
        var fileExt = args.get_item().get_extension();
        if (fileExt && fileExt.toLowerCase() == "pdf")
        {
            //cancel the default behavior
            args.set_cancel(true);
            //open new RadWindow
            var oWnd = radopen(args.get_item().get_path(), "RadWindow1");
            //set size to the newly opened RadWindow
            oWnd.setSize(600, 400);
            //if you want to open the PDF file in a new browser window
            //you can use the following code
            //window.open(args.get_item().get_path());
        }
    }
</script>

I hope this helps

I have just implemented your suggestion posted here with the JS.  While it works fine in Chrome, in IE8 the RadWindow opens with the PDF, then a new IE window opens with the PDF but then focus is taken back to the window with the RadWindow in it.  The user then must click back to the IE window with the PDF.

All I want is to not use the RadWindow at all for opening files from the FileExplorer.  Your solution is close, but not ideal in IE.

Hello Marc,

In case that you don't want to use the RadWindow control, you can check whether the current file is directory or not, and use the window.open method to open the current file. E.g.
ASPX:
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
  
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <div>
    <telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" OnClientFileOpen="OnClientFileOpen">
        <Configuration ViewPaths="~/Files" />
    </telerik:RadFileExplorer>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientFileOpen(oExplorer, args)
        {
                var isDirectory = args.get_item().isDirectory();
  
                if (!isDirectory)
                {
                    //cancel the default behavior - RadWindow will not show
                    args.set_cancel(true);
                    var itemPath = args.get_item().get_path();
  
                    //if you want to open the PDF file in a new browser window
                    //you can use the following code
                    window.open(itemPath);
                }
        }
    </script>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
Hope this helps.
