Hi,

I'm going to try and explane this as good as I can.
I have a ascx, it's very simple it only has a dropdown and some buttons.
When I click on one of the buttons I want to open a one of my aspx sites in/with a RadWindow, this works fine.
This aspx site has a diffrent ascx in it, and when I press a button in this ascx I want the RadWindow to close, faily simple.

But I have a big problem in geting the RadWindow to close.
I can ofcourse just press the red X, but I want the window to close automaticly when the user presses another button.

My RadWindowManager is located inside the first ascx, that ascx opens a aspx that contains a ascx, when the user presses a button in that ascx I want the RadWindow to close.

Lets give them some names:

DropDown.ascx (has the RadWindowManager a dropdown and a button that opens up Editor.aspx)
Editor.aspx (has the Fields.ascx control)
Fields.ascx (a control with a lot of fields that can be edited and a save button)

When the user presses that save button my codebehind in Editor.aspx catches this, it checks how the save goes and then I simply want that codebehind todo something like RadWindow1.Close().

I simply can't find or get a hold of the RadWindow from Editor.aspx

I've tried with Parent or FindControl or similar things, but I simply can't find it, and I don't know how to go on with this, how I can change it. Please help me.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Henrik,

If the RadWindow control shows external page, different from the parent one, you can close that RadWindow by getting a reference to it on the client and then call its close() method. This is needed because the RadWindow object is actually on the different page - the parent one and you cannot access it directly from the content one.

e.g.
function GetRadWindow()
{
  var oWindow = null;
  if (window.radWindow)
     oWindow = window.radWindow;
  else if (window.frameElement.radWindow)
     oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;
  return oWindow;
}     
 
function closeWin()
{
   GetRadWindow().close()
}
