I have a sub and on load I can get this to work...
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, [GetType](), "alertMessage", "alert('LBRISTER');", True)

However....
I Cannot get this code to work...
What am I missing?

Dim url As String = "return window.radopen('EmployeeContact.aspx?MyLeads=1&ispop=1&IndividualID=1&CampaignID=0&OriginID=0&IsPopup=1','ViewContact');"
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, [GetType](), "script", url, True)

Open in new window



That string above works when assigned as an attribute in a RadGrid...
DirectCast(dataItem.FindControl("LinkName"), HyperLink).Attributes("onclick") = "return window.radopen('EmployeeContact.aspx?MyLeads=1&ispop=1&IndividualID=" & IndividualID & "&CampaignID=" & CampaignID & "&OriginID=" & OriginID & "&IsPopup=1" & "','ViewContact');"

Open in new window

Javascript has to be 'client-side' not server side.

Well my guess is that you are trying to open a new window just in javascript, instead of getting the user to trigger it by clicking on something. Browsers and security settings usually stop that sort of thing.

how does this code get added to the page? Is it triggered by a user clicking on a button?
