    Hello Chetan,

    You can set the window size with the setSize method.
    function ShowWindow()
         var oWnd = $find("<%=RadWindow1.ClientID%>");
         oWnd. setSize(10, 10);

    Also take a look into the help document for more on RadWindow client object.
    RadWindow Methods.

    Hello guys,

    Let me point out that there are certain limitations to the size of a RadWindow and such small dimensions are not supported.

    The first is the height - an iframe nested in a table like it is in the RadWindow cannot be shorter than 150px (except for IE) and therefore dimensions lower than about 200px will not be taken if an external page is loaded. You can easily confirm this with the following markup:
    <table style="height:80px;border:3px solid green">    
        <tr style="height:100%">    
            <td style="height:100%">    
                <iframe style="border: 1px solid red; height:100%" src=""></iframe>   

    As for the width - the RadWindow has an icon and several other buttons in its titlebar, and therefore its width cannot be smaller than theirs or else its design would break.

    On the original post - the setUrl() method only takes one argument and you should not pass dimensions there, but to the setSize() method, as Shinu pointed out.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
