Please try wrapping the radopen call in a setTimeout() function:
even 0 milliseconds should suffice. This timeout is often necessary when opening a RadWindow from within another RadWindow, because the browser needs it to properly set the active object. Sometimes it is not set correctly, because the entire RadWindow markup is rendered in the moment when it needs to be shown.
