    I love the ease of use for the RadWindow it would really be great to just embed some controls on the page and not have to use the external navigateurl property.

    For instance, perhaps I want to display a checkboxlist of columns for the radgrid so the user can select what they want to see.  It sure would be nice to be able to do something like:

    <telerik:RadWindow ID="RadWindow1" runat="server" Title="Test" VisibleOnPageLoad="true" ShowContentDuringLoad="true">
        
    <asp:CheckBoxList ID="CheckBoxListColumns" runat="server" />
    </telerik:RadWindow>

    Can this be done?

    I don't think it's possible since that's not what the window was designed for, and I think it would require a major architectual change to the window.

    However, I'd suggest using either RadDock or RadTooltip - both of which are designed to show/hide blocks of controls that are on the same page.

    Hello Kevin,

    Indeed, Shaun is right - the idea behind RadWindow is to replace the standard browser's popup (window.open()) and the control itself is based on an IFRAME - it is simply a container that displays a content page, different from the parent one.
    In cases like yours, I would suggest to follow Shaun's recommendation - to use either RadToolTIp or RadDock.
