    In a previous thread people were discussing a problem with 100% height of a RadGrid placed in a RadSplitter.
    When using a RadAjaxManager I was forced to include an event like:
        void contentpagecs_aspx_AjaxSettingCreated(object sender, AjaxSettingCreatedEventArgs e) 
            if (e.Initiator.ID == "GridView") 
                this.RadGrid1PanelClientID = e.UpdatePanel.ClientID; 
    That solved my problem then. But I still dont really understand what I do when I set the PanelClientID like that.

    No I have a Master page with a RadAjaxManager.
    I have a WebForm, using that Master Page, containing a RadSplitter and in one of the RadPanes I have a UserControl.
    The UserControl contains a RadGrid. The same RadGrid I used before.
    In the UserControl I have a RadManagerProxy like:
    <telerik:RadAjaxManagerProxy runat="server" ID="RadAjaxProxyGrid"
            <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="MyGrid"
                    <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="MyGrid" LoadingPanelID="RadAjaxPanelMaster" /> 

    No I have the same problem like before. The RadGrid doesnt fill up the height in the RadPane in the container for my UserControl.
    I guess I have to include a AjaxSettingCreated event like before. But how and where?
    Can somebody explain in a good pedagogic way for me how to do that, what this solve and how it does that.

    Hi Mathias,

    Setting an explicit height for the generated update panel helps the RadGrid expand vertically to 100%, because according to web standards, an element with a percentage height requires its parent element to have an explicit height set.

    For MasterPage scenarios, please see the second post in
