On Windows Server 2012 R2, the Search field in the ExplorerControl doesn't appear to work. This is observable using the Demo app.
When you type into the Search box, the main pane clears of all file/folder entries, but the matching results never appear.
(Note: Windows Server 2012 R2 isn't available in the OS box, so I chose 2008.)
It would be nice to have some additional public properties and commands for ExplorerControl. For example:
Thanks for your consideration!
I've created buttons that are bound to FileDialogCommands for sending commands to an ExplorerControl, as shown here:
Everything works when the ExplorerControl is visible. However, if the ExplorerControl's Visibility is set to Collapsed (which I need based on a condition), the Command bindings on the buttons throw the below error:
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at Telerik.Windows.Controls.FileDialogs.ExplorerControl.CanExecuteHelper(Object sender)
The UserControl that hosts the ExplorerControl is being imported through MEF. I don't know if that's a factor.
Either way, it looks like a null check might be needed for the InternalViewModel property.
Expose an event that allows you to cancel the navigation to a folder. For example, if you enter an address in the breadcrumb, click the back button, or select a directory in the navigation tree, then you should be able to cancel the navigation.
This can be done via a new event that have a Cancel property in its arguments, for example.
The naming shown here is not mandatory.
Can you please add the ability to select (and scroll into view) a file/folder in the RadFileDialog by keyboard? i.e. when focused within the files section of the dialog, typing 's' should scroll to the first file starting with 's' and select it.
All the Win32 and WPF file dialogs support this.
This is reproducible only with display language of the Windows set to a language different than English. It was originally reproduced with French.
If you set the initial directory to a network dir (ex: \\MyPcName\SharedFolder2\MyFiles), and open the dialog, initially the correct folder is loaded. However, if you wait several seconds without doing anything, the currently opened directory automatically changes to the root "Network" dir.
The error message appears after you do several operations with the dialog and then call the Directory.Move() method. The message is "Access to the path <path> is denied".
To reproduce this behavior you need the following settings.
- Set the display language of your Windows to Italian.
- Use a RadOpenFileDialog.
- Set its Filter. For example, you can filter to show only Excel files.
- Change the layout type to Details.
In this case the folders in the opened direction disappears.
