    I've worked with menu merging with the default VS components long enough to be comfortable. I'm now working with RADMenu now but am a bit stuck.

    With a MDI parent and MDI child, everything looks like it's merging like I'm used to.

    I don't see the same menus merging when I add a RADDock control to the MDI parent and make any of the MDI child forms display as Document Windows. Any ideas what I might be missing or how I can accomplish this merge scenario?

    Thanks

    :)

    Looks like if I use a public RADMenu on a MDI chile, call the MergeMenu method on the MDI parent with the MDI child's public menu as the source, the menus do merge. I just figured this out a few minutes ago, so I have alot more work before I can tell for sure or not.

    Hi James Relyea,

    We currently do not support the MDI merging functionality in RadDock but we plan to implement it. You are correct about the MergeMenu method and because of that it should be easy to add the same functionality for RadDock in future. Thank you for your patience.

    Could you please provide the work-around as described above for merging menus with RadDock?  I have an immediate need for it.

    Thanks!!

    I figured out.  That was easy:

    radMenu1.MergeMenu(form.radMenu1);

    where form is the child form and radMenu1 is the parent menu.
