    Dear Telerik,
    From an ASP.NET application, I open an ASPX page in a maximized RadWindow. This page runs a Silverlight Application that at some point needs to change the title of the RadWindow.

    I tried the following:
    HtmlDocument document = HtmlPage.Document;
    document.SetProperty("title", "My Title");

    That did not work, then I tried:
    string title = "My Title";
    HtmlWindow top = HtmlPage.Window.GetProperty("top") as HtmlWindow;
    HtmlDocument htmlDoc = top.GetProperty("document") as HtmlDocument;
    htmlDoc.SetProperty("title", title);
    And that did not work either.

    How Do I do that?

    Hello Salah,

    The RadWindow's title, can be changed via its client-side API only. You need to get a reference to the RadWindow wrapper from within the content page (by using the GetRadWindow() function) and then call its set_title() method.
    function GetRadWindow()
      var oWindow = null;
      if (window.radWindow)
         oWindow = window.radWindow;
      else if (window.frameElement.radWindow)
         oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;
      return oWindow;
    function changeTitle()
        var oWnd = GetRadWindow();
        oWnd.set_title("my new title");

    Kind regards,
