    Please could you assist.  My radwindow seems to load the entire page inside the popup (with menu, footer etc) instead of just the controls.  Screenshot and code below.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Clientside code: shows popup on image click

    var BaseURL = "<%= WindowBaseURL%>";
                function ShowSearchForm() {
                    var toolBar = $find("<%=toolbarInstruments.ClientID%>");
                    var tbButton = toolBar.findItemByText("exchange");
                    var cbo = tbButton.findControl("cboExchange");
                    if ('<%=IsMobile%>' == 'True') {
                        var navURL;
                        navURL = BaseURL + "&EX=" + cbo.get_value();
                        //location.href = navURL;
                        window.location.href =  navURL;
                    else {
                        //Open the RADWindow
                        var params = document.getElementById('<%=hfParams.ClientID%>').value;
                        var symbolmanager = $find("<%= rwmWatchlist.ClientID %>");
                        var toolBar = $find("<%=toolbarInstruments.ClientID%>");
                        var tbButton = toolBar.findItemByText("exchange");
                        var cbo = tbButton.findControl("cboExchange");
                        var navURL;
                        navurl = BaseURL + '&EX=' + cbo.get_value();
                        symbolmanager.open(navurl , "FindDialog");
                        return false;

    server code: Radwindow declaration
    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="rwmW" runat="server" EnableShadow="true">
                <telerik:RadWindow ID="FindDialog" Title="Instrument Lookup" runat="server" Modal="true"
                    ReloadOnShow="True" Overlay="True" KeepInScreenBounds="True" Behaviors="Close,Move,Resize"
                    OnClientClose="OnClientClose" ShowContentDuringLoad="false" EnableShadow="false"
                    VisibleStatusbar="false" AutoSize="False" VisibleOnPageLoad="False" rendermode="lightweight" width="1042px" EnableEmbeddedSkins="true"/>

    ReadOnly Property WindowBaseURL As String
                If IsMobile Then
                    Return String.Format("{0}/mid/{1}?{2}", DotNetNuke.Common.Globals.NavigateURL("Search"), Me.ModuleId, "popUp=false")
                    Return UrlUtils.PopUpUrl(EditUrl("Search"), Me, PortalSettings, False, True)
                End If
            End Get
        End Property

    Hello Leon,

    RadWindow merely passes the URL the developer provides to a simple iframe to load the designated document. It does not change it and it does not control the content the server sends.

    Most likely, the page you open has a master page with the menus and the other elements you do not want. In this case you would need to consider removing/hiding them according to an additional querystring param, or using a different master page, if possible.

    Once you can put the same URL in a simple iframe and show the desired content, the RadWindow should behave in the same way.

    On a side note - to set the RadWindow title you should use the RadWindow instance and its set_title() method instead of a method on the RadWindowManager. The manager's open() method returns the RadWindow instance for you to use.
