             I am using Rad Ajax ASP.NET control 2008.Q2. In certain cases, my rad window stretches to some height, as a result I am unable to see Title bar and Status bar of the Window. I observed from an articles(,, states there is possibility to close as well as change the active window through Keyboard Shortcuts. I am tried in my project but I couldn't able to create an instance to WindowShortcut class as mentioned in the articles.

    Can anyone help me to fix it up. Really I am running out of time.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Immanuel,

    RadWindow for ASP.NET AJAX does not have this feature - it existed only in the version for ASP.NET (the documentation links that you posted are for the old ASP.NET version).

    With RadWindow for ASP.NET AJAX, I would suggest to use a custom logic that would capture the shortcuts and execute a JavaScript function that will call RadWindow's close() method. For example you can check the following resource that provides a way to capture keyboard shortcuts in JavaScript:

    Hi Georgi,

    Is it possible to provide the feature in ASP.Net AJAX version as well?
    It is really important because we're using Telerik for customers to comply to the Keyboard-based access.
    And now, you're suggesting to place workarounds because a highlighted feature is not available anymore in Telerik.

    I've already created similar issues for RadUpload and RadListbox. So, it is big trouble for us to have another control added to this list.

    This is really critical!

    Thanks in advance.
