    Hi Joles,

    Open RadWindow from the parent page by clicking on the button. For this set the OpenerElementId as ID of the button. Add RadGrid in the page which you want to open in RadWindow (with database connections set). Set the NavigateUrl of RadWindow to the second page.

    Parent page ASPX:
    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server"
            <telerik:RadWindow runat="server" Behavior="Default" InitialBehavior="None" Left="" 
                NavigateUrl="Window.aspx" OpenerElementID="Button1" Style="display: none;" Top=""
    <input id="Button1" type="button" value="Show Grid" /> 

    ASPX of Page showing in RadWindow (Window.aspx):
    <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">           
            <MasterTableView DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" EditMode="InPlace"
                      . . .  
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ConnectionStrings:NorthwindConnectionString2 %>" 
                SelectCommand="SELECT [CategoryID], [CategoryName], [Description] FROM [Categories]" OnUpdating="SqlDataSource1_Updating"

    Hello Jols,

    The easy way to pass parameters is to supply query string parameters to the window URL. I used radopen() for opening the RadWindow instead of using OpenerElementID in order to pass the parameter to RadWindow by setting the Url. These parameters can be read on the server in the Page_Load method of the page being loaded in the window.

    In the main window I have:
    <telerik:radwindowmanager id="RadWindowManager1" runat="server" DestroyOnClose="true"
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text="Account Number"></asp:TextBox> 
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" Text="Card Number"></asp:TextBox> 
    <input id="Button1" type="button" value="Open Window" onclick="openRadWindow();" /> 

    <script type="text/javascript"
    function openRadWindow() 
        var accNumber= document.getElementById("TextBox1").value; 
        var cardNumber= document.getElementById("TextBox2").value; 
        var oWnd = radopen("Window.aspx?accoutnumber=" +accNumber + '&cardnumber=' + cardNumber, "RadWindow1" );  // Set the url 

    In the Second page (opening in RadWindow)
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        int accoutnumber = Convert.ToInt32(Page.Request.QueryString["accoutnumber"]); 
        int cardnumber = Convert.ToInt32(Page.Request.QueryString["cardnumber"]); 
    Using the URL Query String to Provide Arguments to RadWindow

    Hello Jols,

    You can open any .aspx page in the RadWindow control by using one of these approaches. You should just add the grid in the content page and setup it as in a standard web page.
    If  you need to use the RadGrid control you could check this help page and this demo page for more information.

    I noticed than when the necessity of passing querystring values arose, Shinu replaced having a RadWindow with a NavigateUrl with opening the window in javascript using window.radopen(). Is it possible to have a RadWindow defined with placeholder querystring values in the NavigateUrl to be filled later?

    I want to have a RadWindow that I can still open using this code but somehow pass a value to the {0}.
    <telerik:RadWindow runat="server" ID="OpenWindow" NavigateUrl="~/Open.aspx?id={0}" /> 
    window.radopen( null"OpenWindow" ); 

    I have been using the window.radopen() method exclusively, passing in the url and filling in the querystring values there. The problem was that my usercontrol is used in pages on several directory levels, so the paths don't always work. I can't use absolute URLs since I don't know the host/domain at design time, so I thought I could try to use a RadWindow instead since it can handle using the ~ notation for URLs.

    Any thoughts on how I could A) format the navigateurl string set in the RadWindow when the javascript is called, or B) find a better workaround to the issue of getting the URLs to work regardless of the directory the page is in?
