    Can someone advise how to programmatically create a radwindow and it needed elements?

    And then add it to the page.

    The following example illustrates how to create new windows on the client:

    I suppose , that if you want to create it on the server, you should create an object from RadWindow type and add it to RadWindowManager.Windows collection:
    RadWindow myWin = new RadWindow();

    Hello Kyle,

    If you are creating a single RadWindow Prometheus only, you don't need to add it to the RadWindowManager Windows collection. You should add it to the form's Controls collection instead.

    Telerik.Web.UI.RadWindow newwindow = new Telerik.Web.UI.RadWindow();
    newwindow.NavigateUrl =
    newwindow.ID =
    newwindow.VisibleOnPageLoad =
    //set other properties

    Is is possible to programmatically add controls to the RadWindow once you create it.  I want to display system messages to the user, such as exception messages.

    I currently have a BasePage object that all my site pages inherit, this allows me to provide common functionality to all forms.  This base has a "ShowMessage" method that takes an exception object and formats it and displays it to the user in a label control that is programmatically added to the form in the base class.

    I want to replace this label with a RadWindow.  I have been able to get a window to open with correct title, icon, etc., but I am unable to add content to the body of the window.

    I must be overlooking something, is there a way to programmatically add controls to the RadWindow to be renderd at runtime.

    Hi Chris,

    You cannot add controls in the RadWindow control - it is designed to replace the standard browser window and that is why, just as it, it only loads an external page. You can create an additional WebForm, display the needed information in it and then show it in the RadWindow.

    I am not quite sure about your exact scenario and requirements, but I also recommend to examine the RadToolTip control, which is very useful in such scenarios. You can find its online demos here.

    I understand that the RadWindow control can now have custom content:

    Can you please let me know which build included this update? I am sure the latest will contain it. but i would like to confirm if my current version excludes it.

    I am using 2009.2.701.20...

    Hi Anthony,

    This functionality was added in Q3 2009.
