    Hello,

    I have two issues.

    1) I have about 70 Field Editor items in my RadFilter and when I view all my field options on the page the list is off the screen and there is no scrolling to see the options off the page.

    2) I am using a RadMenu on the same page and the filter list is displaying behind the menu. I changed the Z-Index in my Theme for the RadFilter to 25000 so it would be in front, but it's not working. What do I need to do to have the filter above the menu?

    Thanks!

    Don

    Hello Don,

    Straight to your questions:
    1. Please examine this help topic to see how the desired functionality can be implemented.
    2. I suggest that you access the context menu of the RadFilter with the following code and set its z-index:
      RadContextMenu menu = RadFilter1.FindControl("rfContextMenu") as RadContextMenu;
    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,

    Hello,

    I have 70 search options for the user to select from. I implemented the code sample to limit the height of the menu option and turned scrolling on. I was wondering that since it's a menu control underneath if you would consider allowing parent/child properties so we could build an organized hierarchy of the options. We basically have three major categories and I would love to show three parent menus and the related choices would be displayed as a sub-menu.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Regards,

    Hello Don,

    In order to implement the desired functionality, I recommend that you find the menu as I explained in my previous post and bind it to your hierarchical data source.
    You can review this demo for additional information.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Mira,

    Thanks for the info, but I'm a little confused how to implement this with the RadContextMenu. I don't know how to handle the additional properties associated with the RadFilterDataFieldEditors. One of the editors is a custom editor to use a drop down list. Is it possible you can send me a sample of how this feature will work using the RadFilter? I prefer the sample in VB, but I can convert C# if necessary.

    Thanks!

    Don

    Hello Mira,

    I was hoping that I could get an sample of how to dynamically add the menu items to a rad filter. The one link you sent shows me how to get a hold of the menu control, which is fine as I am doing that for my original post, and the second sample shows me a custom editor, which I have successfully implemented into my application, but I would like to see a working version of a custom rad filter that has a hierarchical menu that assigns the parent/child relationships that are necessary.

    Thank you, Don
