    I have a menu on a master page that opens a radwindow (window1)  this window contains a radgrid.  In the radgrid I have some code that opens a second window (window2) to allow editing of the grid contents.  This works ok, but Im having a problem referencing window2 if my .aspx page is in a subdirectory and not the site root.  Heres whats happening

    I activate window2 when my main page is

    /Website/default.aspx    the page is in the root (using this bit of code var oBrowserWnd = GetRadWindow().BrowserWindow;)

    I call this code

    var oBrowserWnd = GetRadWindow().BrowserWindow;
     oBrowserWnd.radopen("ArtistAdmin/BandMemberEditForm.aspx?ID=" + id, "BandMemberDialog");
      return false;

    the edit form is found and opens ok

    If the .aspx page happens to be in a subdirectory, eg


    the window cant be found because BrowserWindow is

    so radopen tries this


    How can I force radopen to use the root directory of my site ?

    Hello Mark,

    What you are using are relative paths (in your example, at least), so I would suggest that you rework your calls to use the correct relative paths. Another approach is to use the full URLs, for example There is a third approach to resolve urls in JavaScript that is inside a page - by using the server-side ResolveUrl method: var resolvedUrl = '<%= ResolveUrl("~/images/testIcon.gif")%>'; and use this variable in the radopen() call.

    Please note that which URL is loaded in the frame does not change the JavaScript window object, only its location property, therefore I believe your issue is some incorrect relative paths.

    I would also recommend that you examine your other thread on the similar matter which I answered and carefully examine my sample and the linked resources.

    Best wishes,
