The following exception is thrown when a new file dialog is created on a separate thread and its ShowDialog method is invoked.
InvalidOperationException: "The calling thread cannot access this object because a different thread owns it."

This happens also if you define an ExplorerControl in any Window opened on another UI thread.

To work this around make sure that you use RadFileDialog and ExplorerControls only on the main UI thread. For example:

App.Current.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(() =>
     RadOpenFileDialog openFileDialog = new RadOpenFileDialog();

Add properties that control the visibility of the different elements in the ExplorerControl. Those are:
  • the address bar where you enter the directory
  • the search bar at the top right corner of the window
  • the main pane, where the folders and files are displayed
  • the navigation treeview at the left side of the control
  • the new folder button
  • the layout combobox

Provide built-in support for the following combinations:

  • Move to the previous folder:  Backspace or Alt+Left Arrow combination
  • Move to the next folder: Alt+Right Arrow combination
  • Change layout: Ctrl + Mousewheel combination

Release R2 2023

ArithmeticException is thrown on RadSaveFileDialog's ShowDialog call, when the device model profile of the OS (from the Color Management menu) is set to sRGB virtual device model profile.

The profile should be set through the Change system defaults menu. This setting is accessed by opening the Color Management menu in the OS, then select the Advanced tab, then click on Change system defaults... In the newly opened dialog click Advanced again and change the Device profile to sRGB virtual device model profile.

This is actually a bug in the WPF framework that is reported here.

The important part of the exception stacktrace is the following:

System.ArithmeticException: Overflow or underflow in the arithmetic operation.

Currently, you can select and deselect files and folders only through the UI. There are no methods or properties that allows to do that manually. Add such API.

A binding error appears in the VS Output pane on startup of the RadOpenFileDialog. The error states the following:
System.Windows.Data Error: 26 : ItemTemplate and ItemTemplateSelector are ignored for items already of the ItemsControl's container type RadBreadcrumbBarItem
The error can be ignored because it doesn't break the file dialog functionalities.

Currently, when the RadFileDialogs control is opened in a remote session, redirected drivers from the local machine will not be shown in the control. We could add an option to show the drivers from the local machine, which are chosen to be used in the remote session.

Currently, double click on a file in the ExplorerControl starts the renaming action. Allow changing this behavior. The possible modes could be rename, execute file and do nothing. 

Note that also the context menu of the file should reflect the mode. Currently, the menu shows the default action based on the file extension as a bold text option. For example - "Open" or "Install". This is inconsistent with the default behavior where the file gets renamed (instead of opened). Ensure that the context menu bolding is updated accordingly.

Currently, the RadFileDialogs does not provide an API option for applying additional filtering of the already filtered files.

We could extend the filtering functionality of the RadFileDialogs control.
