    I have a radmenu in a user control that is placed on several master pages.  I would like to be able to determine the selected item from that menu on my content pages.  I found the solution below which works well if the radmenu is placed on the master page.  I would like to avoid having to duplicate the radmenu on all my master pages and am wondering if anyone knows how I could modify this to be able to find the menu from the user control and then determine the selected item.

    Hello Bob,

    If you have a control inside a UserControl on a master page, you can access it from the content page with the following line:

    RadMenu menu = (RadMenu)((UserControl)Master.FindControl("UserControl1")).FindControl("RadMenu1");
