     I have a RadGrid, and there is a GridTemplateColumn as below:

     <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Approve">
                          <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButtonIsLinkPublish" CommandName="ShowIsPublish" Text="<span style="font-size: 14px;">Approve</span>"

    and i have a RadWindow which has a button as below:

    <telerik:RadWindow ID="RadWindowIsPublish" runat="server" Title="Approve" Width="250px"
            Height="150px" VisibleOnPageLoad="false" Behaviors="Close,Resize,Move" Left="610px">
                     <table width="100%">
    td align="center">
                 <telerik:RadButton ID="RadWindowIsPublisRadButton" runat="server" OnClick="RadWindowButton_Onclick"

    I need to set the button's text which in Radwindow base on record's status in RadGrid, but now the button's text always keep the default value, cannot change it.
    Any help would be great!

    Hello Pat,

    Are you using AJAX? If your grid is performing a partial postback then the new settings for the RadButton simply will not transfer to the client. What you would need to do is to add an update panel in the ContentTemplate of the RadWindow that will wrap the button you wish to modify and call its Update() method on the server when needed. More details on the way AJAX works in this scenario are available in the how to use a RadWindow with AJAX help article.
