    I use RadMenu in my Windows Application.  If the application run in WinXP, the text in the menu item can be displayed completely.
    However, in Win7, only part of the text is displayed (e.g. only "Men" is displayed instead of "Menu Item").  When the mouse over the menu item, it can be displayed (e.g. "Menu Item").

    Is it a bug in Win7 or if there is any setting?

    Best Regards,
    Emily

    Hello Emily,

    I'm also running Windows 7 but I haven't been able to replicate your issue as you can see from the attached screenshot. Please could you provide further details and perhaps a code sample using the format code block, and I'll do my best to help

    Hi Richard,

    I mean the sub-item in the menu.  Please find the attached screenshot and the coding below.
    (When the mouse over the menu item in menuscreenshot2.jpg, the whole word can be displayed.)

    Dim msiTemp As New RadMenuItem
    Dim msiSubItem As New RadMenuItem
    'Adding the Menu Item
    msiSubItem.Name = "rbgMenuItem1"
    msiSubItem.Text = "CO_MASTER_TYPE"                            
    msiSubItem.DropDownHeaderText = vbNullString
    menuCode.Items.Add(msiSubItem)

    'Adding the Sub Menu Item (which is the item that can't display the whole word.)
    msiTemp.Name = "rbgItem1"
    msiTemp.Text = "Customer Type"
    msiTemp.Tag = "Customer Type"
    .DropDownHeaderText  = vbNullstring
    menuCode.Items.Add(msiTemp)



    Thanks!

    Best Regards,
    Emily

    Hello Emily,

    I'm afraid I still haven't been avble to replicate your issue. I'd suggest having a look at the DPI settings on the Windows 7 machine in case they are set to something unusual. Other than that, if you can use the Format Code area to post a full sample here, I'll be happy to take a look, but currently I cannot reproduce this.
    Thanks
    Richard

    Hi Emily,

    Despite our efforts, we also did not manage to reproduce the described issue. I am attaching a movie which demonstrates the behavior on our side with Windows 7 OS and RadControls for WinForms Q3 2010 SP1 (v2010.3.10.1215). The project that you see on the movie is also attached.

    Please open a new support ticket with a sample project which demonstrates the described behavior. In addition, please provide us with details about the DPI and screen resolution settings.

    Kind regards,
    Nikolay

    Hi Nikolay,

    I found that once I changed the menu properties "DropDownAnimationEnabled" to false, the problem solved.

    Best Regards,
