    Was thinking of implementing a toolbar/menu like the one at the bottom of the FaceBook "home page" (when you're logged in.)  Was thinking of adapting the RadToolbar - has anyone tried anything similar?  Any luck creating "alert" style dialogs like those on FaceBook?

    Hello Bill O'Neil,

    RadToolBar currently cannot open from bottom to top which would be a requirement for a facebook-like interface. You can use RadMenu instead - the ExpandDirection property can be used to control the subitem opening direction.

    For any kind of dialogs you may choose between RadWindow, RadToolTip and RadDock. It depends on the actual implementation. If the dialogs should be separate aspx pages you can use RadWindow. Otherwise you can choose between RadToolTip and RadDock based on the desired appearance.

    I hope this helps,

    Are there any plans to expand radToolbar to incoporate "bottom to top" features - and, perhaps, integrated dialogs (like FaceBook chat and alerts?)  Seems like a logical way to go.    
    Thanks!

    Hello Bill O'Neil,

    Expanding from top to bottom is in our todo list. However dialogs are not. We believe they are beyond the scope of a toolbar control.

    Kind regards,
