    here is what we are doing....we have a master page that opens two modal windows.
    I am not having problems opening both...i am however wanting the behavor to be differnt if possible.

    when the master page opens the two modal windows A & B,   and stacks them in that order with B being the topmost.
    I would like A to be grayed out, or even invisible until modal B is closed. the problems is for A to reappear, i have to refresh the screen which i don't want to do...

    is there a way to hide, or gray out modal A, while B is active...then when B closes, enable or show A?

    Hi Randall,

    You can use the client-side API of the RadWindows to hide() and show() them when needed. You can use the following logic, for example, and enhance it further to match your scenario and needs:
    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadWindow ID="RadWindow1" runat="server" Modal="true" OnClientClose="lowerFlag" CenterIfModal="false">
                    <asp:Button ID="Button2" Text="open second" OnClientClick="radopen(null, 'RadWindow2'); return false;"
                        runat="server" />
            <telerik:RadWindow ID="RadWindow2" runat="server" Modal="true" OnClientShow="hideFirst"
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" Text="open first" OnClientClick="radopen(null, 'RadWindow1'); return false;"
        runat="server" />
    where setting the CenterIfModal to false for the first popup will make it remember its position when it is hidden.
    function hideFirst()
        var first = GetRadWindowManager().getWindowByName("RadWindow1");
        first.__isOnlyHidden = true;
    function showFirst()
        var first = GetRadWindowManager().getWindowByName("RadWindow1");
        if (first.__isOnlyHidden)
            first.__isOnlyHidden = false;
    function lowerFlag(sender)
        sender.__isOnlyHidden = false;

    using hide() instead of close() will prevent the close event from firing unnecessarily and will keep the modal background from the first popup in place.
