    When using the sitemapprovider, how can I set the child items to flow horizontally? Can I do it without codebehind, setting values in the .aspx page? 

    <telerik:RadMenu ID="RadMenu1" Flow="Horizontal" MaxDataBindDepth="-1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" Skin="Office2007" />
           </ telerik:RadMenu>

    Hi Paul,

    I suggest you set DefaultGroupSettings-Flow property of RadMenu to "Horizontal" in order to have horizontal submenus:

    <telerik:RadMenu ID="RadMenu1" Flow="Horizontal" MaxDataBindDepth="-1"   
        runat="server" Skin="Office2007" DefaultGroupSettings-Flow="Horizontal">  
    </telerik:RadMenu>

    Thanks Yana, that should be what I need. I knew that the flow setting needed to apply to the default group settings, but I could not find any documentation that spelled out how or if I could set values for the sub classes in the radmenu tag. So, for future reference, can you point me to documentation, and also confirm that the approach would be consistent for other members of the defaultgroupsettings, and possibly other classes below the radmenu. i.e., DefaultGroupSettings-otherproperty="value"

    Thanks, but I think you missed the point of my question. I know where to find the info in the API documentation, but there is nothing there that would have told me I could access these properties in the RADMenu tag like you showed below. I am not looking for documentation on the API, but rather documentation on accessing the DefaultGroupSettings class from within the RADMenu tag, as opposed to programmatically. Documentation on the specific approach used to access the property as opposed to general api docs.

    I would expect the documentation to outline if this is a case specific exanple, or if there is a methodology involved in how this is done.

    The Telerik API is lacking in a ton of areas. I just finished writing a very large enhancement for my employers' RadMenu. A lot of my time was spent looking through the RadMenu and the RadMenuItem's client side properties using DevTools, because many are not documented on the Telerik site.

     Don't even get me started on the fact that you can't use JQuery to traverse Telerik's controls or Webforms in a whole for that matter. 

     There are some Pro's to the RadControl AJAX toolkit, but please improve your documentation. Expand Direction enumerators, Group Settings, Set Flow, _Element, ClientWidth and ClientHeight and 100s more. So, these Pro's are more evident to your user base, because presently it is a giant CON.
