Is it possible to access public propertys on the parent page of a rad window?  When I say parent page I mean the page that contains the rad window.  When not using Radwindows I do the following...

Dim

 

parPage As MyPage= Me.Parent

I could send the values to the radwindow but it seems like there should be a way to get the values directly from the parent.  Any thoughts?

Hi Eric,

When working with RadWindow, you are working with an IFRAME (the control is basically an IFRAME and behaves just like one. Since in such scenario you have 2 different pages, e.g. parent and content one, you cannot directly access the controls in the parent page from within the content page. That is why we have provided a rich client-side API (check the Programming section of RadWindow's documentation) that will allow you to work with the controls on the client, via JavaScript. For example you could get a reference to the corresponding control and take some arguments on the client in the content page and then - to sent them to the server via a postback or RadAjax's ajaxRequest.


Best wishes,

The document in the RadWindow is in an IFRAME, you should be able to get to objects in the parent page through 

top.document or window.parent.document

for example

top.document.getElementById("name of element")

or

window.parent.document.getElementById('name of element')
