The Telerik UI Window HtmlHelper for ASP.NET MVC is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Window widget.

The Window displays content in a modal or non-modal HTML window. By default, the user can move, resize, and close a Window. Its content can also be defined either as static HTML or dynamically loaded with AJAX.

Initializing the Window

The following example demonstrates how to define the Window.

        .Title("Window title")
                Static content of the Window.
    public class WindowController  : Controller
        public IActionResult Index()
            return View();

Basic Configuration

The Window provides default configuration options that can be set during initialization such as height and width, user actions, draggable behavior, initial position, and so on.

The following example demonstrates the basic configuration of the Window.

        .Title("Window title")
        .Actions(actions => actions.Refresh().Minimize().Maximize().Close())
        .LoadContentFrom("AjaxContent", "Window")
        .Resizable(resizable => resizable.Enabled(false))

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function() {
            // The Name() of the Window is used to get its client-side instance.
            var dialog = $("#window").data("kendoWindow");
