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.)
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.
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.
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.
For example Filter is "XAML CS Files (*.xaml.cs)|*.xaml.cs" MS Win32 OpenFileDialog filter files correctly to show only xaml.cs files. RadOpenFile/SaveFileDialog does not show the xaml.cs files which is wrong.
ExplorerControl is in DropDownContent of DropDownButton. Selecting multiple files in the explorer is not possible.
<telerik:RadDropDownButton DropDownWidth="400" DropDownHeight="400" VerticalAlignment="Center" Content="Dialog Button"> <telerik:RadDropDownButton.DropDownContent> <dialogs:ExplorerControl Layout="Details"/> </telerik:RadDropDownButton.DropDownContent> </telerik:RadDropDownButton> When the DropDown is opened Exception in FileBrowserGridView.cs is thrown.
ExplorerControl or FileDialog is opened with StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Windows8TouchTheme(); On load exception is thrown: "Cannot find resource named 'BreadCrumbBarItemCustomStyle'. Resource names are case sensitive"
RadOpenFileDialog or RadSaveFileDialog with Filter, for example fileDialog.Filter = "Excel Worksheets|*.xlsx;*.xls|All Files|*.*"; fileDialog.FilterIndex = 1; This should filter the files in MainPane on load to xls files only (index is 1-based). However, filter is not applied on load - regression in R3 2018.
Create a property that allows to show the UNC name instead of just the drive's letter or change the implementation of the control so this can be achieved by code.
In R2 2018 Release we released the standalone usage of ExplorerControl and the CurrentDirectoryPath works only as a setter. When user sets it- it navigates to the directory with the given path. It would be useful for the clients to have this property with working getter - to provide the path of the current folder.
Expose a ShowReadOnly boolean property which will indicate whether the dialog box contains a read-only checkbox and ReadOnlyChecked property indicating whether the read-only check box is selected
