    I have an issue with modal radWindow, the thing is that I am using a master page, and it has obviusly an MainContent ContentPlaceHolder, the issue is when I show the window in modal style, the window "locks" the entire page, and I want to know if it's possible to configure the window to lock just the ContentPlaceHolder instead of the entire Page.

    Hope you can help me, thanks.

    Hi Daniel,

    RadWindow's modal overlay is applied to the whole page and this behavior cannot be modified. What you could do is to create your own overlay element (e.g. DIV with appropriate z-Index - RadWindow's default z-Index is 3000) that you show whenever RadWindow is shown. To control when the custom DIV is shown and hidden, you could use the OnClientShow and OnClientClose event handlers.

    Is this answer still valid in 2015?

    Hi Marc,

    Yes, this answer is still valid. The modal feature of the RadWindow control is designed to hide the entire page, not just certain areas. To that end, a custom div should be toggled in the the OnClientShow and OnClientClose events.
