    I used PreviewClose event, but it seemd not to reach my demand.I also tried RadWindow.Confirm() method in PreviewClose event,but the RadWindow was already be hidden before i clicked OK or Cancl button .

    Hi Michael,

    This can be a little tricky but actually the PreviewClose is the right event. You can set Cancel=false to prevent the window from closing if the close is not initiated by a Confirm reply. Refer to the following code:
    And in XAML:

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Net;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using System.Windows.Documents;
    using System.Windows.Input;
    using System.Windows.Media;
    using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
    using System.Windows.Shapes;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
    namespace RadMenu_StretchItems
        public partial class MainPage : UserControl
            public MainPage()
            private RadWindow w;
            private bool closeOnReply = false;
            private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                if (w == null)
                    w = new RadWindow();
                    w.PreviewClosed += new EventHandler<WindowPreviewClosedEventArgs>(w_PreviewClosed);
            void w_PreviewClosed(object sender, WindowPreviewClosedEventArgs e)
                if (!closeOnReply)
                    e.Cancel = true;
                    RadWindow.Confirm("Are you sure you want to close the window?", new EventHandler<WindowClosedEventArgs>(ConfirmClosed));
            void ConfirmClosed(object sender, WindowClosedEventArgs e)
                if (e.DialogResult == true)
                    closeOnReply = true;
                    w = null;
                    closeOnReply = false;

    And in XAML:

    <UserControl x:Class="RadMenu_StretchItems.MainPage"
            d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="800">
        <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
            <Button HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Content="Open Window!" Click="Button_Click" />
