    I am using Telerik.Web.UI version 2011.1.315.35, and the default location of the dialog is centered in the browser. I am trying to explicitly specify the startup location. I have seen an example that involved setting the "OnClientLoad" property in the code-in-front (ascx or aspx), but that Javascript method doesn't seem to be being called.

    How can I specify the startup location of the dialog?

    Hi Scott,

    Here is the code I used and it seemed to work fine for me (with your version as well):
    <asp:TextBox ID="Textbox1" runat="server" Text="mizpelled textt" />
    <telerik:RadSpell ID="RadSpell1" runat="server" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad" ControlToCheck="Textbox1" />
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientLoad(sender, args)
            if (sender && sender.get_dialogOpener && sender.get_dialogOpener()._container)
        function setDialogPosition(sender, args)
            setTimeout(function ()
                sender.moveTo(10, 10);
            }, 0);

    If this does not work for you, you can replace the OnClientLoad handler with a pageLoad() handler (i.e. the Sys.Application.Load event) and $find() the RadSpell instance, instead of getting it as the first parameter of its own event handler.
