    How can I pass parameters to Lightbox from Radgrid Item_DataBound? I am trying to bind RadHtmlChart based on RadGrid DataKey value. Here is my code. Could you please let me know? I am not sure how to do this. I just upgraded our projects to new controls. Thanks for any help.

      <telerik:RadLightBox ID="RadLightBox1" runat="server" width="400px" height="350px">
                        <telerik:RadHtmlChart runat="server" ID="RadHtmlChart1" Transitions="true" Skin="Metro"
                                                <telerik:PieSeries DataFieldY="total" NameField="office" ColorField="PartyColor"
                                                    <LabelsAppearance DataFormatString="{0}" >

     <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" GridLines="None"
                                    Skin="Office2007" Width="600px" Style="height: auto;" OnItemDataBound="RadGrid1_ItemDataBound">
                                    <MasterTableView ShowHeadersWhenNoRecords="true" DataKeyNames="type_id">
                                            <telerik:GridBoundColumn AllowFiltering="False" AllowSorting="False" DataField="Name"
                                                HeaderText="Name" ReadOnly="True" UniqueName="Name">
                                            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="count" HeaderText="Total" UniqueName="count">
                                            <telerik:GridHyperLinkColumn Text="View Details" UniqueName="viewDeatils" />
    Code behind
           protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
                if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
                    GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item;
                    HyperLink link = (HyperLink)item["viewDeatils"].Controls[0];
                    int index = item.ItemIndex;
                   link.Attributes.Add("onclick", String.Format("ShowGraph('{0}');", item.GetDataKeyValue("type_id").ToString()));


         function ShowGraph() {
                    var lightBox1 = $find('<%= RadLightBox1.ClientID %>');

    Hello Nara,

    Since you are using an ItemTemplate, the template will be render after the LightBox is opened. A possible solution to pass a parameters to RadHtmlChar is to save the ID into a HiddenField and after you get the char client object to use the id to bind it. Please check out the following code snippet.
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OpenLightBox(index) {
            $get('<%= HiddenField1.ClientID %>').value = index;
            var lightBox = $find('<%= RadLightBox1.ClientID  %>')
        function LightBoxShowed(sender, args) {
            var ID = $get('<%= HiddenField1.ClientID %>').value;
            var htmlChar = $telerik.findControl(sender.get_element(), "RadHtmlChart1");
            //after you find the char you could bind it by using the ID
    <asp:HiddenField runat="server"  ID="HiddenField1" />
