    I have this situation and want to find out what is the best solution:

    I need some menu links to open the radwindow directly. I have put the rad-menu in a user control and the user control is included in my master page. Where should I put the WindowManager - in Master Page or in Menu user control?

    Some of my pages that are opened directly in the browser may contain their own child radwindows too. So, will there be conflict if they also have radwindow manager too along with having window manager in master page / menu user control?

    Let me know what is the best approach!

    Hi Piyush,

    Up to your questions:
    1. I would recommend to put the RadWindowManager in the master page. This way it will be available in all pages where you would need to open RadWindows.
    2. This will not be a problem because with RadWindow "Prometheus" you can have more than one RadWindowManager on the page. Note however that when you use the RadWindowManager's functions (radopen(), radprompt(), radconfirm() and radalert()), these functions will use the RadWindowManager which is first rendered on the page.

    Best wishes,

    How do we deal with scenarios where we have master pages where we need radwindows with javascript functions such as radopen and content pages that have windows that need to use the javascript functions. If the radopen always uses the 1st rendered radwindow on the page  how do we get to the 2nd one from javascript when needed?
