    I have a custom widget that has a RadGrid. When I double click a row I want to open up a dialog window. For that I have created a custom dialog based on AjaxDialogBase and registered in Sitefinity. Now I want to pass the row  ID from the custom widget to this dialog. How should I do that? Following is the code I have on my custom widget to show the dialog.

    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function ShowDetails(id) {
            this._window = $find('<%=RadWindowManager1.ClientID %>').GetWindowByName("BugDetails");

    This is my RadWindowManager code.

    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="windowManager" runat="server" Skin="Sitefinity">
                            <telerik:RadWindow ID="BugDetails" Width="620" Height="500" NavigateUrl="~/Sitefinity/Dialog/BugDetailsDialog" runat="server" ReloadOnShow="true"
                             Modal="true" VisibleStatusbar="false" Behaviors="Close" >

    What if you set the navigate URL in javascript to pass along a querystring var which can be picked up in the windows page?
