What I have been trying to accomplish is having a RadGrid calculate its height to fill the rest of a RadPageView of a RadTabStrip/RadMultiPage control. The RadMultiPage should fill what is left of its RadPane, below all other elements that might be above the RadTabStrip. The first time the page is loaded, everything seems to be rendered and sized correctly, however, when resizing the window it seems that only the Grid that is currently visible gets resized, and all the others do not get rendered correctly even though they should all be repainted according to the scripts.

<telerik:RadSplitter ID="InquiryDetailSplitter" runat="server" Orientation="Vertical" OnClientResized="SetElementDimensions"

Am I going about this completely wrong? Honestly, if I can go about this just using CSS rules and forego the javascript altogether that would be optimal. Thanks for any assistance.

Hi,

In your case you need to set a different height to the RadGrid, e.g. calculate the available space on the screen with Javascript and set the RadGrid height client-side.
