What exactly is not working in this case? If the controls is properly configured to update itself (e.g. either the OnCallBackUpdate or a WebService) things should work properly. I tried with the below code and things were working as expected with me: http://screencast.com/t/Y9a4hwqCLW
"ShowSuccessNotificationMessage('test title', 'some message'); return false;"
notifObject = $find(
sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadNotificationEventArgs e)
RadNotification1.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString();
I also advise that you upgrade to the latest version, as there have been some fixes on the RadNotification control and they may help you, as I am not sure exactly what and how you are using.
