    First of all, a specific question.  Is there a way to use Telerik / ASP to display a message box directly from the code behind.   I am aware that I could use the code behind to trigger a javascript function that's 'hidden' and bound to an onchange event on an element that nobody sees.   However, I would prefer a more direct method of sending alerts to users form the code behind if possible.

    Also, in general, how can telerik enhance message boxes?

    Hi Daryl,

    Telerik Supports RadAlert, RadConfirm and RadPrompt to show the message box. You can replace the standard alert, confirm, and prompt dialog boxes that are provided by the browser when you call the window.alert, window.prompt and window.confirm commands. The replacement dialog boxes are called with the radalert, radprompt and radconfirm methods, correspondingly. The replacement popups are implemented using RadWindow, and are a good deal more flexible than their browser counterparts. You can call these from both server side and client side. Please have a look into this help documentation and online demo for further information.
