    I have a scenario here, I need help with.

    I have a MasterPage with a TabStrip with 7 tabs. Each Tab navigates to seperate page in the content place holder.

    7th tab opens a page with has a TabStrinp with 4 Tabs. Each Tab adds a pageview dynamically and loads a usercontrol in it. Here I am using RadAjaxManager to ajaxify the tabclicks.

    On each of these dynamically loaded user controls I need to provide a feature where user can click a button to show a popup window (using radwindow manager), select some values in the popup, close popuup and return the value to the usercontrol field.

    All the usercontrols have heavy db access operations on them.

    How can I achieve that? I am moving away from infragistics and am trying to use telerik controls. The project is huge and it is difficult to send the sample code.

    I have a tight deadline and I have been trying to do it on my own but have run into issues with postbacks and javascripts and all. ANy help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Manjeet,

    We do not have such specific example that shows all your requirements. This seems more like a whole application. Still you can take a look at the following examples and use them as a starting point for your implementation.

    TabStrip / Dynamic RadPageView
    TabStrip / Load on Demand RadPageView
    Window / Edit Dialog for RadGrid

    The following demo shows how to use RadWindow as a dialog. 

    Window / Returning Values from a Dialog

    More information on the subject is also available in the documentation, section Controls / RadWindow / Programming / Client Side.

    As for sending the information from the client to the server, this is not directly related to the RadWindow control but is a general programming task - for example you can use __doPostBack() or RadAjax's ajaxRequest call to do this.

    If you experience problems with the RadWindow in this scenario, please implement the desired logic by using a standard browser's popup ( Once you have your code working as expected, send us the project and we will rework it for you so it uses RadWindow.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
