I currently open a page from another radwindow using the code...

Protected Sub RadGrid1_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles RadGrid1.SelectedIndexChanged
    If RadGrid1.SelectedItems.Count > 0 Then
        For Each item As GridDataItem In RadGrid1.SelectedItems
            Dim strid As String
            strid = item("UniqueID").Text
            Session("Selected") = "Selected"
            Session("ID") = strid
            Dim newwindow As New RadWindow
            newwindow.NavigateUrl = "MessageForm1.aspx"
            newwindow.Width = Unit.Pixel(600)
            newwindow.Height = Unit.Pixel(650)
    End If
End Sub

And everything opens fine, until I come to closing it, I know everything works because It works perfectly using "response.redirect"
When I close it using the following code...
Protected Sub btnSave_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSave.Click
    Dim log As New dbMessageLog()
    log.ForID = Convert.ToInt32(ddlFor.SelectedValue)
    log.From = Convert.ToString(ddlFrom.SelectedValue)
    log.Customer = txtCustomer.Text
    log.Telephone = txtTelephone.Text
    log.Email = txtEmail.Text
    log.Urgent = Convert.ToInt32(chkUrgent.Checked)
    log.TakenByID = Convert.ToInt32(ddlTakenBy.SelectedValue)
    log.TakenOn = Convert.ToDateTime(DatePicker.SelectedDate)
    log.Actioned = 1
    log.StatusID = Convert.ToInt32(ddlStatusID.SelectedValue)
    log.Message = txtMessage.Text
    log.Subject = TextBox1.Text
    If lblMessageID.Text = zero Then
        log.UniqueID = lblMessageID.Text
    End If
    InjectScript.Text = "<script type='text/javascript'>CloseAndRebind();</" + "script>"
    Session("ID") = zero

On First Click...
It saves the data but doesn't close the window, and displays the old values
the screen flickers slightly as well
On a second click of the save button it works fine

It also does it when I click on the "x" at the top right of the page
so i guess it's something to do with the opening code?

Thanks in advance

Hi Ryan,

What I can suggest is the following

1) open the RadWindow in a client-side event, if possible, because instances can be created on  the client during runtime. If you cannot go client-side - employ the approach from this sticky thread:

2) examine this help article on properly injecting the script call: Using a label is not the most effective way of doing this. I have found the ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript() method to be the most reliable.

Kind regards,
