    When I call a javascript to close a radwindow by itseft and want to call a function wrote from parent page  , there was an error.
    My code block :

    var oWindow = null;
     if (window.radWindow)
         oWindow = window.radWindow;
     if (window.frameElement.radWindow)
         oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;
    if(!window.opener.closed) window.opener.assignTask();

    When I run this script there was an error  that : window.opener.closed is null
    I was try without using radWindow . There was no error. How can't I fix this problem ?
    I wan't to ask more that, is there a  way to call a button from a page that is opening ?
    Thanks  very much

    Hi Piro,

    Attach the event handler to OnClientClose of RadWindow which is called after the window is closed.

    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server" VisibleOnPageLoad="true" DestroyOnClose="true" Skin="Telerik" OnClientClose="OnClientClose"

    <script type="text/javascript"
    function OnClientClose() 
        //Your code here 

    It is possible to get the OpenerElementID value by using the method oWindow.get_openerElementID() from dialog page. Also you can use the current RadWindow to get a reference to the parent page as shown below.
    <script type="text/javascript"
    function GetRadWindow() 
      var oWindow = null
      if (window.radWindow) 
         oWindow = window.radWindow; 
      else if (window.frameElement.radWindow) 
         oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow; 
      return oWindow; 
    function getParent() 
      var oBrowserWnd = GetRadWindow().BrowserWindow; 
    Go through the following link for more information.

    Hello Piro,

    For your convenience I prepared a simple demo and attached it to this thread.

    I hope this helps.
