Telerik UI for Windows 8 XAML

In order to use Telerik RadRadialMenu control in your application you have to add reference to the Telerik UI for Windows Universal SDK:

Right-click on your project -> Add Reference -> Windows -> Extensions -> Telerik UI for Windows Universal -> tap/click OK.

If adding binaries instead, you will need the following references:

  • Telerik.Core.dll

  • Telerik.UI.Xaml.Primitives.dll

To add them:

Right click on your project -> Add reference -> Browse -> C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for Windows Universal Qx 20xx\Binaries -> Select them -> tap/click OK

RadRadialMenu as a Context Menu

Here is an example demonstrating how to declare a RadRadialMenu instance as a context menu for a TextBlock. This can be done by attaching the Menu and Behavior properties of the RadRadialContextMenu class to the TextBlock target element.


If the Behavior property is not attached, the menu will not be visualized.
