Hi Eric,

Thank you for sharing this with us. Unfortunately, we don't think this is reliable solution for all cases and it might cause more issues in some cases. If you are willing you can log this issue with Microsoft ( and check their statement on it.

I have googled around for that half-hour and found a work-around that maybe you can add to your implementation.

Hi Eric, 

as you probably know, RadBrowseEditor internally uses the standard FolderBrowseDialog and it gets the SelectedPath from it to display in the text part of the control. In this case, the FolderBrowseDialog returns "New Folder" instead of the name typed in, so this is what RadBrowseEditor will show as well. For the time being, I am not sure we can do something about it.

Any ETA on this bug? I noticed that the title now has "FIX" in front of it but not really sure why.
