    What I am trying to do is pass a value from my RadGrid to my RadWindow when a button is clicked, very similar to what is demonstrated in this demo: 

    The trouble I have is finding my RadWindow via Javascript. Every method I try results in a null object returned from the find command. The most recent method I tried was registering the javascript as a startup script. I'm not sure what exactly I'm doing wrong. See my code below:


    <telerik:RadGrid ID="durationGrid" runat="server" DataSourceID="durationDataSource"
             OnItemCommand="durationGrid_ItemCommand" AllowPaging="true" OnItemCreated="durationGrid_ItemCreated">
                <MasterTableView runat="server" CommandItemDisplay="Top" UseAllDataFields="true" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataKeyNames="ID">
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Stat" HeaderText="Status" SortExpression="Stat" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ItemName" HeaderText="Name" SortExpression="ItemName" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="PartNumber" HeaderText="Part Number" SortExpression="PartNumber" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Serial" HeaderText="Serial #" SortExpression="Serial" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="LotNumber" HeaderText="Lot #" SortExpression="LotNumber" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="CrossRefID" HeaderText="PS #" SortExpression="CrossRefID" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="OEM" HeaderText="OEM" SortExpression="OEM" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Consigned" HeaderText="Consigned" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="location" HeaderText="Location" SortExpression="location" ReadOnly="true" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Value" HeaderText="Value" SortExpression="Value" ReadOnly="true" DataFormatString="{0:c}" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ExpirationDate" HeaderText="Expiration Date" SortExpression="ExpirationDate" ReadOnly="true" DataFormatString="{0:MM/dd/yyy}" />
                        <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="">
                                    <asp:ImageButton ID="NotesBtn" runat="server" ImageUrl="images/icons/notes.png" OnClick="NotesBtn_Click"  />
                    <CommandItemSettings ShowExportToExcelButton="true" ShowAddNewRecordButton="false" />
                <ExportSettings FileName="Duration Report"></ExportSettings>
            <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="winma2" runat="server">
                     <telerik:RadWindow ID="NotesWindow" runat="server" Modal="true" Behaviors="Close, Move"
                        Width="540px" Height="490px" DestroyOnClose="false" VisibleStatusbar="false" ShowContentDuringLoad="false" ReloadOnShow="true"
                        Skin="Simple" OnClientShow="OnClientShow" Title="Item Notes Editor" >    


    protected void NotesBtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
              string script = "function openRadWin(value) {var win = $find('" + NotesWindow.ClientID + "');alert(win); Sys.Application.remove_load(openRadWin);}Sys.Application.add_load(openRadWin);";
              ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "key", script, true);
          protected void durationGrid_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
              if (e.Item is GridCommandItem)
                  Button btncmd = (e.Item as GridCommandItem).FindControl("ExportToExcelButton") as Button;
                  if (btncmd != null)
              if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
                  ImageButton NotesBtn = (ImageButton)e.Item.FindControl("NotesBtn");
                  NotesBtn.OnClientClick = "openRadWin('" + e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["ID"] + "');";

    Hello William,

    Try  the following approach to open the window from server side.

    protected void NotesBtn_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
        string ShowWindow = "ShowWindow();";
        ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "ShowWindow", ShowWindow, true);

    <script type="text/javascript">
      function ShowWindow()
          var oWnd = $find("<%=NotesWindow.ClientID%>");
          // . . . .

    I tried implementing your code, but no luck opening the window. I modified the javascript to add an alert to tell me what the value of oWnd was [alert(oWnd);], and it's returning null.

    I ended up just putting the javascript at the end of the page. Now it finds the control. Thanks for your help.
