    There doesn't seem to be a global click event.  This would be useful for setting an option where the user can click anywhere on the DesktopAlert.

    I tried looking for Hwnd or Handle so I could manually register a click event in this manner, but even those properties don't exist.

    So, the question is this -- If there is no Click event, and there is no Handle/Hwnd, what is the code to write in order to make something happen when the user clicks anywhere on the DesktopAlert.  I considered registering the dimensions of the window and handling any clicks in that region using desktop clipping, however this is not a realistic approach as the bounds would be overlaid when other windows come into focus.

    It seems like this was either a rather obvious oversight, or you have another method that isn't described in your documentation, examples and varies from standard event registration (possibly something hidden inside Properties ?? )

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for writing.

    Our RadDesktopAlert control contains a DesktopAlertPopup object where you can register for the event. Please see the code snippet below:
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
            this.customDesktopAlert1.Popup.Click += Popup_Click;
        private void Popup_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    Hope this helps. Should you have further questions do not hesitate to write back.

    Thank you for your reply.  I can see the event was buried under the Popup object.

    Following is the VB equivalent to your code (some minor changes with the names to default first object laced)

    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
      AddHandler Me.RadDesktopAlert1.Popup.Click, AddressOf RadDesktopAlert1_Click
    End Sub
    Private Sub RadDesktopAlert1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    End Sub
