The client-side Delete event is raised when a file or folder is deleted in RadFileExplorer.

To handle this event, simply write a JavaScript function that can be called when the event occurs. Then assign the name of this function as the value of the OnClientDelete property of the control.

The client-side OnClientDelete event handler receives two arguments:

  1. Sender: The RadFileExplorer object that fired the event.

  2. Event arguments: An event arguments object of type Telerik.Web.UI.FileExplorerEventArgs that exposes the following methods:

    Table 1: OnClientDelete Event Arguments Object

    Name Parameters Return Type Description
    get_cancel() Boolean Returns a value that indicates whether the event is cancelled.
    get_item() Object Returns the file/folder that will be deleted.
    get_path() String Returns the path to the deleted file/folder.
    set_cancel(value) Boolean Sets whether the event will be cancelled (if true is passed).

Example 1: Handle the RadFileExplorer's client-side Delete event.

<telerik:RadFileExplorer ID="RadFileExplorer1" runat="server" OnClientDelete="onClientDelete">
    <Configuration ViewPaths="~/Images" DeletePaths="~/Images" UploadPaths="~/Images" />
    function onClientDelete(fileExplorer, args) {
        alert("Deleted file : " + args.get_path());
