I open my Rad Editor in a popup rad window using top.radopen because I want the popup to open on top of the entire web page, as oposed to within the splitter frame that contains the opener. I have noticed this causes some undesireable effects with the editor dialogs.

The biggest problem has to do with the track changes dialog.  Unlike the others (like the File Managers, property dialogs, etc.), this does not open in it's own rad window, but rather loads in the same rad window the editor is already in. So, basically I lose the previous rad editor screen and can't get it back.

Of lesser importance, but still a bit of an annoyance, is that the other dialogs (all of them, to my knowledge), open in their own rad window, and on top of the editor rad window, however, they are all contained within the frame of the editor rad window. Some of the dialogs are nearly as, or even a little larger than, my editor window, so they get cut off and the user can't drag them outside of the bounds of the editor rad window. It would be a better experience if these dialogs opened in their own window (as they do now), but also on top of and out of the frame of the editor's rad window, and therefore would be able to move freely around the screen. I'm sure that this might be complicated given that these dialogs must communicate with the frame that opened them, but perhaps there is some way of achieving this? Or maybe there is a better way for me to open the Editor Rad window?

Hi Albert,

We have implemented an AutoSize feature in RadWindow which is useful in this scenario. We have attached a sample project where the AutoSize feature is used.

Thanks, that should help with the second issue. Do you have a suggestion for the first?

Hi Albert,

The track changes dialog is displayed in the same RadWindow dialog as the rest of RadEditor's dialogs. Could you please provide more information about the problem with this dialog only by opening a support ticket and sending a sample working project and a couple of screenshots or video demonstrating your test and the issue?

Sincerely,
