    I was looking at the Sitefinity CMS and was curious as to how the generic content editor appears on the page as it does? (figure 2 in the link provided): http://www.sitefinity.com/help/developer-manual/generic-content-public-controls.html.
    I have a project where I open an editor for HTML on a web page and currently the editor opens in a RadWindow. The Sitefinity way of doing is seems much faster and provides the added functionality of opening another "window" inside the editor window (figure 3 in the link provided). If possible I would love to see an example project of how to do this, if not I would simply like to know what Rad Control is used to display the editing window.

    Edit: After looking at some of the videos it appears that it is a RadWindow, if it is then is the parent for the second window (figure 3) the page, or the first window? Also how does it load so fast? My RadWindow takes ~5 seconds to load.

    Hi Dan Miller,

    Yes, the control which is used for "edit" option in SiteFinity is RadWindow.

    A simple example which illustrates how to open a RadWindow from another RadWindow is available here:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/window/examples/dialogreturnvalue/defaultcs.aspx

    The RadWindow control wraps an IFrame, and the content is loaded in it. The loading time in RadWindow should be equal as if the content is loaded in IFrame. In case that there is significant time difference, please send us a runnable project, where we can observe it.
