    Let's say I have RadMenu that has an ItemTemplate defined like this...

    <Rad:HierarchicalDataTemplate x:Key="it">
          <RowDefinition Height="21" />
          <ColumnDefinition Width="1*"/>
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
          <TextBlock Content="{Binding MyCaption}" />
          <Button Content="Button1" Command="..." CommandParameter="..." />
          <Button Content="Button2" Command="..." CommandParameter="..." />

    The RadMenuItem's will have a textblock followed by two buttons.  I can click on the RadMenuItem and the RadMenu will behave normally, however, if I click on the buttons, I would also like the RadMenu to close.  How can I accomplish this?

    this is the only way I found to accomplish it... this is basically just invoking the default behavior of the root menu item... which happens to be close if it's open.  hope it helps.




    void btn_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    RadMenuItemAutomationPeer mip = new RadMenuItemAutomationPeer(menuItemRoot);

    I ended up just rearranging my menu items instead.  I'm wary about having to add click events all over just to close the menu.
