Greetings,

I am trying to obtain a reference to a RadTabStrip from within a RadWindow using...
function pageLoad() {
    //get a reference to the needed controls -
    var manager = GetRadWindow().get_windowManager();
    var tabStrip = $find("<%=RadTabStrip1.ClientID %>");
}

when the page loads. This works fine when done from the main page where the RadTabStrip1 markup is located. I'm probably missing something very obvious but I have failed all morning to get the reference. When I open the RadWindow I get...

Compiler Error Message: CS0103: The name 'RadTabStrip1' does not exist in the current context.

I have tried everything I can think of, even tried hard-coding the clientID, with no luck. Any help would be much appreciated.


Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom,
  Can you paste in your window definition?  Is it an iframe (NavURL) or a content template one?

Hi Steve,
Thanks for your reply. I was using NavURL with radopen (and RadWindowManager) to open the window. The pageLoad function I originally posted located in an .aspx page that was being loaded within a radWindow. I'm not really sure what was happening but I worked around the issue as I described here...
