    Is there a way to set up RadNotification to run only one method at a fixed interval, and then display only if conditions are met?

    Right now it just seems to spam the page_load event, I do not want this behavior.

    Hi Danny,

    You can set VisibleOnPageLoad Property of RadNotification to false and show RadNotification whenever you want as follows.

    <telerik:RadNotification ID="RadNotification1" runat="server" VisibleOnPageLoad="false" Title="Sample Title" Text="Simple text content" ShowCloseButton="true" >


    Hope this helps.

    Hello Danny,

    I have just answered your support ticket on the matter and for your convenience and for others that may have a similiar question I am pasting my reply here:

    The RadNotification control supports two main ways of getting updated content - a client callback and a webservice. Client callbacks are lighter than postbacks because they do not go through the rendering stages of the page, yet they will still hit the page load event. Webservices, on the other hand, are not related to a given page and thus they will not affect it. You can see this in the following demos:
    I also think the following demo will give you a nice idea on implementing the functionality - through checking the value taken from the server:
