Hi, I am using the RadWindow to let the users add information.  What I want to be able to do is, when the user adds a record, the window should close and then redirect the user to a different page.  Also, the user should be redirected only when the user has added record successfully.  How can I go about doing this?

[Note: the information is being stored server side.]

Hi Prateek,

One suggestion would be using OnClientClose event of RadWindow to redirect to new page. You can place one HiddenField control on parent page and use that as a flag for checking whether succesful updation is performed.

JavaScript:

 
<script type="text/javascript">  
    function OnClientClose(sender, args) {  
        // check for HddenField value  
        window.location.href = "http://www.google.com";  // Redirect to new page  
    }  
</script> 

Set the HiddenField value from radwindow page when performing successfull updation. You can use the 'BrowserWindow' property to get access to parent window from radwindow page. The following documentation shows more about this.

Hi Prateek,

In such scenario, I would suggest the following logic:
  1. Execute your code in the codebehind
  2. Output a JavaScript function that would call top.location.href = "http://myUrl.com"
More information on the subject is available in this blog post:
