Hi,

in the Master I have a Rad menu, which gets the items from a siteMap-File
<telerik:RadMenu ID="radMenu" runat="server"      
 DataSourceID="siteMapDataSource" onitemclick="radMenu_ItemClick" /> 

In the method radMenu_ItemClick I tried to get a reference to the RadGrid in the current Page. (I assume here that the correct page is currently loaded)
protected void radMenu_ItemClick(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadMenuEventArgs e)  
   {  
      Tasklist tasklistGUI = radMenu.Page as Tasklist;  
      RadGrid tasklistRadGrid = tasklistGUI.FindControl("RadGrid1"as RadGrid;  
      tasklistRadGrid.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel();  
   } 

The idea is then to call ExportToExcel as a method of the referenced object. But the object is null!
What's wrong? What must I do to get a working reference to the RadGrid?

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards
Bernhard

Hi,

You can access  the RadGrid from the ContentPlaceholder of the Master page which will hold the contents  as shown below:

C#
 protected void radMenu_ItemClick(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadMenuEventArgs e) 
    { 
        RadGrid tasklistRadGrid = ContentPlaceHolder1.FindControl("RadGrid1"as RadGrid; 
        tasklistRadGrid.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel(); 
    }
