    When constructing a dynamic menu hierarchy (data driven) I run into a problem when the number of items pr level is too great to display within the silverlight control; menu items are hidden and not accessible. There does not seem to be an obvious way to enable scrolling or some other way of accessing the hidden items? Is this a bug or is there a way around this issue?

    Hello Thomas Hansen,

    The default templates for RadMenuItem do not include ScrollViewer. This is why when you have a lot of items some of them are hidden. To workaround this you can edit the templates and add ScrollViewer.
    Please note that RadMenuItem have four templates. You should edit only those that have Popup control in them (submenu items are placed there) - TopLevelHeaderTemplateKey and SubmenuHeaderTemplateKey.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Sincerely yours,

    I have the same problem, I have used scrollviewer but don't like it.  I would like to see some sort of hyperpanel with mouse position sensitive autoscroll like most other menus.  Otherwise I love your stuff.

    Hello Doug,

    We have this feature in our plans, unfortunately I cannot promise a specific delivery date. Meanwhile, you could try the following workaround:
