    I was trying to use the panelbar component as described in this post. I actually switched to the treeview in the end, it was just easier. I've got it working now, but at the moment it's quite cumbersome having to modify the underlying data set, fiddling with template selectors etc, just to achieve something as simple as an "Add node here" button. It would be great if this functionality was built into the treeview. And while I'm at it I might as well request node editing as well. /Henrik

    Hello Henrik,

    We are planning to integrate a Context Menu within the RadTreeView, where you can define your own custom actions, along with some predefined, like: Delete, Add, Rename, etc.

    Do you think this will be enough?

    BTW: We have the node editing functionality now - check-out this example:
    http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Examples/TreeView/NodeEditing. Set the IsEditable property to the RadTreeView and hit F2 key to see the selected node in edit mode.

    Sorry, I've completely missed the node editing feature, it looks really nice.

    For most purposes I'm sure a context menu will be fine, but the application I'm developing targets some very inexperienced computer users. We need to make sure that they understand what the application does by first sight. From a usability point of view I also thinks it makes more sense to have the "Add" option at the end of the list you're adding items to, rather than hidden inside a context menu, especially if it requires using the right mouse button.
    Of course I understand that you cannot meet the specific needs of every single user of your components, but from my own personal point of view this would be a very useful feature.

    As for the context menu feature, please make sure that it is possible to use it as a "left click" menu as well, or at least that it is possible to show the context menu programmatically.
