    I am using RadGrid ( control on a custom page in MOSS with a master page.  When I tried to add ExportToExcel in button click event the event would fire on the first click but on subsequent clicks nothing would happen – all postbacks were suppressed. I tracked the problem to this line of code in the master page:

    <form runat="server" onsubmit="return _spFormOnSubmitWrapper();">

    _spBodyOnLoadWrapper() doesn’t seem to reset some internal variables in partial post backs.

    When I remove the onsubmit event the page seems to works fine (<form runat="server">).

    I don’t want to remove it since it’s a standard MOSS master page and it might break some other functionality.

    Is there a workaround for this?

    Are master pages supported by teleric controls in MOSS?


    My custom and master pages live in:

    \Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS

    Hi G7,

    I have been researching this and I don't have good news. I think we've hit an IE browser limitation here. SharePoint uses a window.onbeforeunload event handler in order to force users to save pages when they try to navigate away from them, and having that handler breaks all script execution after a postback (the grid export operation).

    I think the only way to work around this is to use my colleague Vlad's hack, outlined in this forum thread and export your grid in a new browser window. Or maybe you can do a Response.Redirect in your button click event handler and export from another page.
    I hope this information helps.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
