    Window is losing its Behaviors, and Width and Height properties
    The window opens with a small size, and all extra buttons, maximize, minimize, etc, which I don't need. I only need the Close button.

    Here's the ascx code:

    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManagerRepPayments" ShowContentDuringLoad="false" VisibleStatusbar="false"
        ReloadOnShow="true" runat="server" EnableShadow="true" Width="1500px" Height="500px">
            <telerik:RadWindow ID="wndRepPaymentsEdit" runat="server" Behaviors="Close" OnClientClose="OnClientCloseRepPayments"
                Width="1500px" Height="500px" Title="Payment" NavigateUrl="RepPaymentsEdit.aspx">

    Here's the javascript for opening:

    var oWnd = radopen("RepPaymentsEdit.aspx" + "?RepID=" + repID + "&RepPaymentsID=" + id, "wndRepPaymentsEdit");

    Also, if I change the window size, and open it again, it resizes it. I don't want resizing. I just want to be able to open and close it with a specific size.

    I was able to solve my problem by calling instead of radopen.

    I also had to add a return false; after the call because it was creating the postback and the window was closing immediately. 

    I don't understand why the behavior, it did not happen when I was using radopen  ??? 

    Frustrating problem, and I still don't get it.

    This is the code I ended up with..
    var oWnd = $find("<%= wndRepPaymentsEdit.ClientID %>");
    oWnd.setUrl("RepPaymentsEdit.aspx" + "?RepID=" + repID + "&RepPaymentsID=" + id);;

    OnClientClick="OpenWndRepPaymentsEdit();return false;"

    Hello Simone,

    The behavior from your first post is most likely related to the presence of more than one RadWindowManager on the rendered page. This scenario is discussed in the following help article: Please examine it carefully, as it will shed some light on the behavior of radopen vs $find().show().

    As for the postback - generally it should be avoided, just as you have noticed. Why it was working before I cannot be certain, but most likely it has been a partial postback (i.e. an AJAX request) that did not dispose the RadWindow you had opened, as it was created by a manager that was outside of the update panel that I assume resides in your UC.

    Can you please verify what are your setURL and Show functions? I am havin the same issue, I have 2 radwindows in my page and the second one does not have any of the attributes I assign to it in the RadWindowManager
