    I know there is an example on the Demos page to pass server arguments to the dialog from the main page, but I would like to reverse that and pass server arguments from the dialog to the main page. So if the user changes data in the dialog it would pass back to the main page like MainPage.aspx?CustomerID=AROUT.

    Is this possible? If it is, how would I go about doing it?

    Hi Justin,

    Since the two pages are entirely separate there are several ways you can achieve passing the value from one to the other:

    1) build the data on the content page, store it in the session, cache or database and when closing the RadWindow perform an AJAX request in the main page to get it. Similar approach is shown in this online demo.


    2) if it is a simple string like your example you can pass it as a JavaScript argument when closing the RadWindow. How to do this is shown in this help article and this online demo. You can take it from the server to the client in your content page easily, for example in a hidden field or by directly injecting the script that will close the RadWindow. You can then either use it via JavaScript, you can perform an AJAX request, etc.


    3) change the URL of the main page to provide the argument as a querystring, e.g.: = + "?CustomerID=" + myData     Note that this will fully reload the parent page.
