    Hello Telerik Team,

    In my project I need to open a new page from source page. On the target page I need to access Page.PreviousPage property. This can be done just when you specify PostBackURL attribute on e.g. asp:button control.

    I call openning target page from client side as:

    <asp:Button ID="Button2" OnClientClick="OpenAttachmentWindow(); return false;" runat="server"></asp:Button>
    Javascript function is:
    function OpenAttachmentWindow() { 
                   var wnd = $find("<%= AttachmentWindow.ClientID %>");                 
    RadWindow definition on :
    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager2" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadWindow runat="server" Width="560px" Height="440px" 
                NavigateUrl="~/Pages/AttachmentWindow.aspx" ID="AttachmentWindow"
                Modal="true" ReloadOnShow="true" Animation="Fade" Title="Čakajte">


    The question is how can I open target page from source page via RadWindow and apply PostBackURL or Server.transfer from server side which allows me to access Page.PreviousPage property.

    I've found some useful links to my needs on the web.

    Thank you for your help...

    Regards Vasssek

    I doubt you can achieve what you want to do by using the RadWindow, since the RadWindow just opens the page in an iframe, so your target page has no access to the calling page, outside of javascript. So pretty much, you can't find out the calling page in your code.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi guys,

    Cori is right - when displaying a content page (i.e. NavigateUrl is set), RadWindow displays that content page in an IFRAME. Because the content and the parent pages are different and the content is displayed in a container in the parent, you cannot access the parent page directly from codebehind (and vice versa).
