    I've been working on a Silverlight application for a couple of months now and have gotten it to the point where I am ready to deploy it to my customers.

    One of the last items on my "to-do" list was to enable Out of Browser support in the application.  But when I do, and then install it locally, I lose all of my context menus.  They're there when I run it in the browser but not in the out of browser version.

    Is there another trick that I need to use in order to get it to run properly out of the browser?

    I even created a test app that just has a RadGridView, some column definitions and the context menu definitions and was able to reproduce it like that as well.

    Hello Lee Weisenberger,

    RadContextMenu does not support OOB in Silverlight 3. As you probably SL3 doesn't have RightClick support so we had to create custom implementation (which cannot work in OOB).
    But with Silverlight 4 RightClick is supported so RadContextMenu will work In and Out of browser on all platforms without the need for windowless option.

    Let us know if you need more information.

    Kind regards,

    I'm currently running Silverlight 4 and Telerik RadControls for Silverlight 4 2010 Q1 SP1, and whether I use set the windowless option or not, I am unable to get the context menu to open up out of browser.

    As I said, Out of Browser, I do not get my context menu, only the default Silverlight menu.  In IE, my context menu opens just fine.

    I even went as far as to just create a basic Silverlight application with a RadGrid, some column definitions and a context menu, and I was able to reproduce the issue.

    I've attached a couple of screen shots that show the behavior.

    Hi Lee Weisenberger,

    Please make sure that you are using RadControls for Silverlight 4 (version ends to xx.xx.xx.1040).

    Let us know if you have further questions.

    I checked the file version of a couple of files in the Bin directory and according to that, the version is 2010.1.422.1030.

    When I downloaded that, it was Q1 2010 SP1, which was supposed to be the version that supported Silverlight 4.  Shouldn't that support context menus out of browser?

    I'm at a critical point of my development release schedule and was trying to avoid upgrading the Telerik controls if I could avoid it.  Looks like I'll have to adjust my schedule accordingly.

    Hello Lee Weisenberger,

    Version is 2010.1.422.1030 - is a build against Silverlight 3 platform where RadContextMenu doesn't support RightClick in OOB.

    Please download version is 2010.1.422.1040 or newer in order to get the build against Silverlight 4 where right click is supported in OOB.

    I upgraded to Q1 2010 SP2 and that has fixed the problem.

    Thank you.
