    Hello Francesco,

    The Target property only works when you're ButtonType is set to LinkButton. It doesn't work with the default Button setting. The reason is the way it renders the control.

    I hope that helps.

    Hello Kevin,

    Indeed, the Target property takes effect if the ButtonType is set to LinkButton, this is the default RadButton behavior. You may utilize this type and set the button as image button. This is shown in the example below:
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" ButtonType="LinkButton" Text="RadButton" NavigateUrl="" Target="_blank" Width="37px" Height="36px">
        <Image ImageUrl="~/Images/cb_download.png" />

    If you insist on keeping the ButtonType to StandardButton you can achieve opening the requested page in new window by canceling the postback and opening the URL with Javascript on the client-side event OnClientClicking of RadButton. This implementation is discussed in the following forum thread:

    Kind regards,
