    I have a page where It is possible to luanceh more than one radwindow, I am creating these windows in the following way,
    var popup = window.radopen(Url, null);
    The user can click a button which will open window 'a', they can then do something else that will cause window 'b' to open.  When in window 'b' I would like to get hold of window 'a' to refresh the content.  I would guess a way to find this is to find the window which is not selected, which would be window 'a'.  I have no idea on how to do this, I can only seem to get hold of the current window when using GetRadWindow()
    function GetRadWindow() {
        var oWindow = null;
        if (window.radWindow) oWindow = window.radWindow;
        else if (window.frameElement.radWindow) oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;
        return oWindow;
    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    sorted, record the windows id's on creation, then you can reference them.

    Hi Russell,

    Basically, you could use the get_windows() method of the RadWindowManager to get a reference to a specific RadWindow. For example, the code bellow will close all RadWindows on the page, except the active one:

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server" />
    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function closeAllButActive()
            var windowManager = GetRadWindowManager();
            var allWindows = windowManager.get_windows();
            for (var i = 0; i < allWindows.length; i++)
                var currentWindow = allWindows[i];
                if (!currentWindow.isActive())
        function openWin()
            radopen("", null);
    <button onclick="openWin(); return false;">
        open RadWindows</button>
    <button onclick="closeAllButActive(); return false;">
        Close all but the active RadWindow</button>

    Note that the closeAllButActive() function should be in the parent page, where the RadWindowManager is.

    Kind regards,
