    I have a control in a master page that I want to display only when the master page is not in a RadWindow; when in a RadWindow, it should be hidden.  Is that possible to do, to detect when the page request is inside the RadWindow?

    Hello Brian,

    Such check can be done on the client only - there isn't a server-side method that would detect how the HTML is rendered - in the topmost page or in some container like IFRAME.
    To detect on the client if a page is loaded in a RadWindow, you could use a slightly modified version of the GetRadWindow() function:

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function GetRadWindow()
            var oWindow = null;
            if (window.radWindow) oWindow = window.radWindow;
            else if (window.frameElement && window.frameElement.radWindow) oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;
            return oWindow;
        function CheckWnd()
            var wnd = GetRadWindow();
            if (wnd)
                alert("This page is loaded in a RadWindow");
                alert("The page is loaded in the browser");

    Kind regards,
