    I'm sure i'm missing something simple but the solution eludes me - i'm trying to use a RadContextMenu instead of the standard Windows.Forms.ContextMenu but receive the following error:


    'Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadContextMenu' cannot be converted to 'System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenu'.


    Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated!

    Sure enough, it was simple!  For anyone finding this thread...here's how it's done:

    1) Drop your RadContextMenu onto your form.

    2) Edit the Items collection as needed.

    3) ADD a RadContextMenuManager control to your form...this will auto-create a new Property for every control on that form - property name?  RadContextMenu of course!  Click that and your context menu created in step #1 will show up on the list.
