I have modified an example I found on the Telerik site to determine content size in order to adjust a pane and splitter to the size of the content. All works in the example when you hard code some content. However if I set the ContentURL of the pane to an external URL, the sizing no longer works. Any ideas?
<%@ Page Title="Home Page" Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"
    CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="FrameTest._Default" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function SplitterLoaded(splitter, arg) {
            var pane = splitter.getPaneById('<%= RadPane2.ClientID %>');
            var height = pane.getContentElement().scrollHeight;
            splitter.set_height(splitter.get_height() - pane.get_height() + height);
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
        <telerik:RadSplitter ID="RadSplitter1" runat="server" Width="200px" Height="200px"
            OnClientLoaded="SplitterLoaded" Orientation="Horizontal">
               <telerik:RadPane ID="RadPane2" runat="server" ContentUrl="" Scrolling="None">

Hi Greg Barretta,

 This functionality is not implemented by design but you can achieve it by javascript means. You need to define the following functions:

- One function in the page which will be loaded in the RadPane and returns the height of the page.
- One function in the main page (which contains the RadSplitter control) which sets the returned by the previous function height to the RadPane object.
- Call the main page's sizing function on RadPane's content page load.

Note, that this can work only for pages in the same domain because of the browsers security - you cannot manipulate and calculate the scrolling of  e.g google page with javascript because if cross domain scripting was allowed, this would lead to hacker attacks.

You can find a sample demo attached.

Best wishes,
