    I am trying to get a value from a popup window. 

    My process goes like this.

    When a user clicks on a value from a RadDropDownList (CUST_NBRDropDown) I have OnClientItemSelected fire a popup

    <telerik:RadDropDownList ID="CUST_NBRDropDown" runat="server" DataSourceID="Customer_DDL" DataTextField="account_name" DataValueField="account_number" DropDownHeight="400px" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("CUST_NBR")%>' OnClientItemSelected="OnClientItemSelected">

    function OnClientItemSelected(sender, eventArgs) {
         var item = eventArgs.get_item();
        //alert("You selected " + item.get_text() + " with value " + item.get_value());
        retVal = window.open("BSDM_PLANT_BACKNUMBERS_popup.aspx?acct_num=" + item.get_value(), "Popup", "width=300,height=100");

    On the BSDM_PLANT_BACKNUMBERS_popup.aspx page i have a RadComboBox that i want the user to be able to select one of the values from.(This dropdown is populated from a Oracle DB. with the filter from the original 'CUST_NBRDropDown' dropdown.)

    After they select a value i want to return the selected value back to the BSDM_PLANT_BACKNUMBERS (Parent) page to a Textbox in the same row as the original RadDropDownList.
    <asp:TextBox ID="CUST_NBR_txt" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("CUST_NBR") %>' Visible="true"></asp:TextBox>

    So far I have not been able todo that.

    If possible instead of doing a popup i would like to be able to have the dropdown that is populated in the Popup window to be in the radgrid row. but from my understanding i cannot bind the dropdown in "batch edit mode" after the CUST_NBRDropDown is selected since this is all client side functions...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello Corey,

    In essence you want to have related combos in a batch editing grid. To demonstrate a possible realization of this scenario I have assembled a sample web site for you to review(you can find it in attachments). Please examine the implementation and let us know if the illustrated approach fits the requirements.
