    Hello, I have two windows on my form in a RadWindowManager and the skins aren't appearing when the window appears.
    Here is the windows:
        <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server" Skin="WebBlue">  
                <telerik:RadWindow ID="SaveQueryWindow" runat="server" Skin="WebBlue" Behavior="Default"   
                    InitialBehavior="None" Left="" 
                    style="display:none;" Title="Save Query"   
                    Top="" Height="210px" Width="300px">  
                <telerik:RadWindow ID="ExportConfirm" Skin="WebBlue" runat="server" Behavior="Default"   
                    InitialBehavior="None" Left=""   
                    style="display:none;" Title="Exporting List" Top="">  
    This is one of the buttons used to open the SaveQueryWindow:
    <asp:LinkButton ID="btnSaveQuery" runat="server" Text="Save" OnClientClick="javascript:OpenSaveQueryWindow('Save');return false;" /> 
    This is the Javascript function to open the window:
    function OpenSaveQueryWindow(action)  
            var window = radopen("SaveQuery.aspx?action=" + action, "SaveQueryWindow");           

    I have the Register Assembly at the top of my aspx page as well:


    @ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    and the telerik dll is in my bin folder....

    What am I missing?  Again, the window opens with my aspx page in it, just no skin is applied....

    Ok, new Info.....The skin does show, it is just behind other things on the screen.  No idea why, the previous version of the telerik radwindow did not appear behind parts of my screen.  I have an object tag embedded on this webpage as follows:
                    style="width: 900px; height: 450px;" 
                     <param name="ConnectionString" value="Provider=SQLOLEDB;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=xxxx;Data Source=xxx;" />             
                    <param name="Connected" value="1" />   
                    <param name="SQLSyntax" value="12" /> 
                     <PARAM NAME="GroupObjectsBySchema" VALUE="false">  

    Now this object is fairly large on the screen so I need the radwindow to appear over top of it.  The window center appears over top, but the skin appears underneath the object....really odd.   Any ideas?

    Hi Coty,

    The code that you posted seems fine and should not be the reason for such problem. Unfortunately without having a closer look at your application, we cannot be of much help at this point.
    Could you please open a support ticket and send us a small sample project where this issue could be reproduced? This way we could work directly on your code and provide you with the best solution.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Sincerely yours,

    I actually figured out my problem to a degree that is acceptable from researching other's problems with flash my case it is an activeX object.

    Anyways, I set Overlay="true" in each of my windows.  This made it so the skin appeared correctly over the object.  I also set Behavior="pin" so users can't move them, because when they were moved they would disappear until they stopped moving the window.  I read in another thread that the Overlay="true" solution only works on IE which is acceptable for me because all my users use IE.

    However there was another problem, the skin would flicker when the mouse went in and out of the window.  So I ended up setting the VisibleStatusBar and VisibleMenuBar to false as well, which got rid of the flickering parts.  I just changed my HTML in the window to look more like a stand alone window.
