    Ok, It seems that I can not run Kendo in a Window object.

    I am looking to run a popup window not dependent on the page.

    So it is always present and usable.   I have one working as a Kendo Window, but it is attached to the page that spawned it.

    Any one got an idea beside spawning another browser window?

     

    Thanks

    Hello, Daniel,

    In general, in order to use the Kendo UI widgets the Kendo UI scripts, styles and jQuery have to be present in the page that used the Kendo UI widgets.

    The popup has to be either a part of an existing page with the Kendo UI resources loaded or a separate page again with all of the resources loaded.

    If you provide more details about the scenario and the use-case I will gladly check if we can offer an alternative approach.

    Regards,

    Thank Stefan,

    Here is the scenario.  We would like a windows that is accessible during the session for notifications and messages.

    This popup does tie back to the same host, but should not have to reload on each navigation.

    This is not a chat tool.  This is a notification tool.

    So it would be wise to run as a separate window away from the site pages as they load.

     

    The current configuration of the kendo window popup will require a recreation of the window for each page navigated to.

    Thoughts? Or can I do a window.open('mvc') using a kendo grid in it?  I tried this and it seems to fail also.

     

    Thanks

    Dan

    Hello Daniel,

    The popup elements are just HTML elements and although that you can load external content to the Kendo Window, that content will be rendered in an iframe within the page that open it. If you need a window that will stay open when you change the pages in your browser, you can open separate tab in the browser:
    Hope this helps.
