    When I am validating a text box, I show a rad alert with error message, if i close the rad alert with mouse, it works perfectly, however
    if I hit the 'Enter' key, the first time it behaves as expected, but after that it starts showing up the below message,

    Why do i get this message only with 'Enter' key and is there a way to suppress this message?

    Hi Deepa,

    This is a browser message and is not triggered by the RadAlert, nor can it be controlled by us. The most likely reason for this behaviour is that you have some custom handlers for the enter key that redirect the page. It is possible that they are attached dynamically or they are caused by the presence of a DefaultButton.

    What I can suggest you try at this point is making sure that the first button of the popup is focused because some other code on the page could be stealing the focus and thus consuming the enter click:
    var oAlert = radalert();
    setTimeout(function() {
    }, 0);
