Hello everyone! We’re back again with a new set of XAMLflix after taking some time off to prepare for TechEd 2012 and our XAML Q2 2012 release. In today’s installment of XAMLFlix, we are going to cover RadContextMenu for Silverlight and WPF. Let’s go ahead and jump into today’s set of episodes.


What is RadContextMenu?

RadContextMenu for Silverlight/WPF provides the power to boost the existing navigation of your application. RadContextMenu allows you create right-click context and pop-up menus. With its advanced features, like CheckBox/RadioButton items, rich Programming and Events model, RadContextMenu gives you the entire control over its behavior.

  • Getting Started with RadContextMenu – In this video, we will see how easy it is to get started with RadContextMenu.  We will begin by adding RadContextMenu to a new Silverlight Application and adding multiple RadMenuItems to it. We will wrap up by showing you to implement event handlers for the MenuItem the user selected. (Download the Project)
  • Create Drop-down button behavior using RadContextMenu  – In some scenarios you need to have a button that displays additional options upon clicking. You can accomplish this very easily by using RadContextMenu and Silverlight’s powerful TwoWay Binding mechanism. (Download the Project)
  • Using RadContextMenu with RadTreeView – In this video, we will take a look at integrating RadContextMenu with RadTreeView. This will enable your users to perform additional functions such as adding new items, editing items and selecting items with a simple right mouse click. (Download the Project)


Telerik XAMLflix for WPF controlsAt this point, you should be able to successfully use RadContextMenu in your next Silverlight or WPF application. But even if you need more help, then we are here for you by our extensive help documentation or dropping in a support ticket.

If you haven’t installed the suite yet, then feel free to download your own copy of the Silverlight and WPF right now.  

Again, please share any feedback and tell us how we are doing. If you are looking for a new control or features then drop a line in the comments below. We really appreciate the feedback.
