    I have downloaded the latest rad controls for winforms, I have visual studio 2008 running on windows vista ultimate. I have a problem in visual studio in the designer, when i drag a new rad menu onto my form there seems to be no problem. I added a couple of items into the menu and then i ran the application,
    when the application shows up in runtime the menu is gone. Also if in the designer i close the form and reopen the menu is gone as well. I have tried uninstalling and installing a new version of rad controls with the same results... All the other controls seem to work fine, except the radMenu.

    If anyone can help, it is very much appreciated.

    Hi Todd,

    Thank you for writing us.
    We will address this issue in the next release (Q1 2008 SP1). The good new is that there is a simple workaround for this issue. In the VS designer you have to expand RootElement property and set its AutoSizeMode to WrapArroundChildren or do the similar by code.

    This issue also exists on Windows XP with VS 2008.

    Fix is perfect

    Yes, it worked perfectly.

    But when I convert my form into a RadForm, the RadMenu occupies all the upper space, I cannot see the Title Bar of my main form.

    This happens when you first convert the form to RadForm then Run it and then stop the app and you will see the behavior occurs in your design window

    How should I fix this?

    Hi rgomez,

    If you use the Dock property to arrange the controls you should have in mind that the order of adding the controls on the form affects the way controls are positioned/sized.

    The details are described in this article:

    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms404360.aspx

    If this is not your case, I will need more information to understand the issue. Probably the best solution will be to open a support ticket and attach a demo project.
