    I am trialing RadDesktopAlert for a new system I am developing, and considering purchasing radcontrol for WinForms. I have used RadControls for the web before. 


    I have created a RadDesktopAlert and it appears to work quit well. I create the RadDesktopAlert in code and added 2 buttons behind it. I can run code from those buttons without any issues. However I need to pass an ID into the RadDesktopAlert , that I can access when pressing these buttons. 


    Is there a way I can pass a variable, does as a unique string into the RadDesktopAlert that I can read when pressing one of these buttons?


    Many Thanks




            private void rbeRequest_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                Console.WriteLine("code test here");
                // I need to get a value specific to the rad alert here. 




          // create the RadDesktopAlert
                RadDesktopAlert radDA = new RadDesktopAlert();

                    //declare the buttons. 
                    RadButtonElement rbeRequest = new RadButtonElement();
                    RadButtonElement rbeAdministrator = new RadButtonElement();

                    rbeRequest.Name = "test1";
                    //assign code to each button that runs. 
                    rbeRequest.Click += rbeRequest_Click;
                    rbeAdministrator.Click += rbeAdministrator_Click;

                    //set padding around the buttons to make them a little bigger. 
                    rbeAdministrator.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(5);
                    rbeRequest.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(5);

                    //apply a lable to the buttons
                    rbeAdministrator.Text = "My Administrator is Present";
                    rbeRequest.Text = "Request Permission";

                    //add the buttons to the DesktopAlert component. 
                    radDA.ButtonItems.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.RadItem[] {

                //apply text. 
                radDA.CaptionText = "caption text goes here";
                radDA.ContentText = "content text goes here"   ;
                //show the alert.

    Hello Danny,

    You can use the Tag property of the alert's popup. For example, you can set it like this:
    RadDesktopAlert radDA = new RadDesktopAlert();
    radDA.Popup.Tag = "MyID";

    Then you can get in in the event handler:
    private void rbeRequest_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        var button = sender as RadButtonElement;
        var popup  = button.ElementTree.Control as DesktopAlertPopup;
        var id = popup.Tag;

    I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.
