Ok, here is my noob question :-)

I have a footer usercontrol (ascx). This footer control launch server side a radwindow (that is another aspx page).

Here is my code:

RadWindow newWindow = new Telerik.Web.UI.RadWindow();
newWindow.ID = "HelpDeskMessageWindow";
newWindow.NavigateUrl = "ErrorPopup.aspx";
newWindow.AutoSize = true;
newWindow.Modal = true;
RadWindowManager1.Windows.Add(newWindow);
newWindow.VisibleOnPageLoad = true;

As you can see in order to do that I have to put the radwindowmanager inside the usercontrol.

I'm worried about this, because I think that the radwindowmanager should stay in the parent aspx page who contains the control.

What is the best way to do that? i'm doing something wrong?
Thanks a lot

Hi Stefano,

A RadWindow can live on the page separately, without a manager, so you can simply add the desired RadWindow to your user control's control tree instead of to a manager. Otherwise, you can traverse the page hierarchy and add it to the manager you already have there.

I also believe the following resources will help you get started with using the RadWindow:
its Client-side API
how to open it from the server
different ways to open a RadWindow
working with multiple managers


All the best,
