    I'm trying to achieve something where the Headers for RadMenuItems in my RadContextMenu are selected from a static resource, the key of which derives from a binding.  This will allow me to have an ItemsSource of ICommands, and for each, select a different text for the Header based on a key property I expose on my custom ICommands.

    I'm using at attached DependencyProperty, so I have access to the RadMenuItem as a DependencyObject when the DynamicProperty is changed.  However, when I try to access the my resource out of the Resources property of my RadMenuItem, it doesn't exist (I get null).

    Yet if I remove my attached DynamicProperty and just bind the header (Header="{Binding Source={StaticResource MyKey}}"), the RadMenuItem is able to find the key.

    Is there a way to programatically "find" a resource, starting from a RadMenuItem?

    Hello Brian Sayatovic,

    Could you send us sample project demonstrating this problem so that we can investigate it further?
