    We are using a simple rad menu, just a few items all hardcoded.  We have no plans to add icons and would like to get rid of the extra space on the left which is by default reserved for menu icons.  What is the best/easiest way to do this?   I went down the template path but it seems overly complicated for what I am trying to do.

    Hi Kjell,

    From Q2 2010 (version 2010.2.714) RadMenu has a property named IconColumnWidth that specifies the width of the area, reserved for icons. If you set that property to 0, the area should disappear.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Valeri,

    We implemented the IconWidth of 0 and this worked great.  However, the RadMenuItems with IsSeparator="True" don't seem to be filling the entire width.  The Separator is still shifted over to the right for what seems like the width of the icon column.

    Is there a workaround for this?

    Hello,

    I've downloaded the latest Silverlight 3 DLLs (2010.2.812.1030).  My project was previously running off of RadControls for Silverlight Q1 2010 SP1 (2010.1.422.1030).  But I have replaced the DLLs with the 2010.2.812.1030 build.

    However, I don't see IconColumnWidth as a valid property for the RadMenu.

    Hi Wilson,

    Probably the DLLs were not updated correctly. Please, see the assemby version in the each reference properties - it should be the same for all Telerik assemblies (see the attached image). You can also visit the following help article for detailed instructions about the upgrading the Telerik controls:
