    Is the RadWindow suitable alternative for the AjaxToolbox Modal pop up?
    I try and use it to create for example an Editor pop up for posts in a listview.
    But then i need to send info between the page and the pop up, and not have the problem that the window closes down on callback. 
    I dont need the pop up to be  a true modal in the sense that it blocks the rest of the page.
    Would  the radWindow require extra javascript to these kind of operations?

    Thanks for your time!

    Hello Lautar,

    The RadWindow would be quite suitable for your scenario. RadWindow events and properties provide the support you need to create dialogs that communicate with your Web page. Checkout the following documentation to know more on this:

    Using RadWindow as a Dialog

    RadWindow has a number of client-side properties and methods that you can use to manipulate the windows in the browser. You can find out more on this from the following documenataion.

    Hello Lautaro,

    When RadWindow is used to display a content page, different from the parent one (e.g. NavigateUrl is set), it displays the content page in an IFRAME and basically behaves just like an IFRAME. In such case the communication between the content and the parent page is most often done on the client by using the client-side API (check this help article and this demo for more info).

    Another option is to use RadWindow as a controls container (demo). In such scenario, the content of the window is in the same page and can be accessed from codebehind directly.

    I hope this information helps.

    Best wishes,

    GREAT! Excellent, that is exactly what i wanted. So i dont need to use it as a IFrame. That makes it much easier to implement for smaller stuff. THANKS!
