    If you are using the window as a 3 page wizard is it possible to set the window arguments on a button click on page 2 that will be used in the OnClientClose event when the window is closed using the x or another close button on page 3?

    Here is how I am trying to set the arguments on page 2

    function GetRadWindow() {
             var oWindow = null;
                if (window.radWindow)
                oWindow = window.radWindow;
                else if (window.frameElement != null && window.frameElement.radWindow)
                oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;
                return oWindow;
    function OnClientClose(oWnd, args) {
              var arg = args.get_argument();
              if (arg) {
                  if (arg.functionName) {
                      if (arg.functionName == "ajaxRequest") {
                          var eventArg = arg.functionArg;
              else {
                  alert('No Arg');
    function SetReturnArgs(varFunction, varArg) {
        var oWnd = GetRadWindow();
        var oArg = new Object();
            oArg.functionName = varFunction;
            oArg.functionArg = varArg;
            oWnd.argument = oArg;
     protected void btnSetArgs_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                      "SetReturnArgs('ajaxRequest', 'eventArg')",

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Hi Dave,

    This is the approach I would have advised myself. I am not completely sure where all the function are placed, however, so it is possible that the context of the close handler is not correct. Also, I am not completely certain what is the exact issue you are having with the snippets you have pasted. Thus, I created a simple example that shows how things can work. You can find it attached and extend if further to match your needs.
