I just upgraded my rad controls for AJAX.

I have a GridView with a radMenu embedded in it.  it uses the following code to popup a window...

RadMenuItem DetailsMI = new RadMenuItem("Properties", string.Empty);
DetailsMI.ImageUrl = "images/Details.gif";
DetailsMI.Attributes["onclick"] = string.Format("javascript:PT_ViewPage('{0}'); return(false);", DetailsURL.ToURL());
Menu.Items.Add(DetailsMI);

The JavaScript PT_ViewPage looks like this...

function PT_ViewPage(TargetURL) {
    WindowArray[WindowArray.length] = window.open(TargetURL, "", "width=900, height=800, status=no, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes");
}

Nothing fancy here.  The problem is that before the Teleric update, the child window that is opened used to remain on top - it retained focus.  After the update, focus shifts back to the parent window.

My question is:  What changed and how do I get the windows to behave like it used to???

Sorry, it is a radContextMenu.  Here is the ASPX markup...

<asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="false"  ItemStyle-Width="5%"  ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right">
      <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:Image ID="btnPopup" runat="server" ImageUrl="images/Expand.jpg"   />
        <telerik:RadContextMenu 
            ID="mnuRow" 
            runat="server" 
            OnItemClick="ControlContextMenu_Click" 
            OnClientItemClicking="OnDeleteItemClicking" 
            CollapseAnimation-Duration="100" 
            ExpandAnimation-Duration="100" 
            ExpandDelay="0" 
            >
        <Targets>
            <telerik:ContextMenuControlTarget ControlID="btnPopup" />
        </Targets>
        </telerik:RadContextMenu>
    </ItemTemplate>
    </asp:TemplateField>

Hello Ken De Vries,

I tried to reproduce the issue that you encounter but with no success. Can you send us a sample running project with the problem that you describe?

Kind regards,

Has this been answered? I am hitting the same problem ... setting the .Attributes["onclick"] = "open some popup" ...   causes the popup to not get focus. It seems like the focus shifts back to the parent window ... effectively hiding the popup window.

Is there a workaround to this behavior (I simply want a RadMenuItem to open a popup when clicked).

Thanks

Hi,

I suppose you want to open a radwindow on clicking menu item. Here is the sample code.
C#:
protected void RadMenu1_ItemClick(object sender, RadMenuEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item.Text == "open")
    {
        string script = "function f(){$find(\"" + RadWindow1.ClientID + "\").show(); Sys.Application.remove_load(f);}Sys.Application.add_load(f);";
        ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "key", script, true);
    }
}

Thanks,
Princy.

I am actually just trying to run some JavaScript to do a window.open. Your sample looks like a server post-back. Is there a way to simply run JavaScript to do a window.open without using postbacks and without the RadMenu control "stealing focus" after the JS runs?
Thanks

Hi,

You can try the following client side approach.
JS:
function OnClientItemClicked(sender, args) {
    if (args.get_item().get_text() == "open")
      {
    var window = $find('<%= RadWindow1.ClientID %>').show();
    }
}

Thanks,
Princy.
