    We have menu structure with root level and one group. For example:
    root item
    • child item1
    • child item2
    root item2
    • child item1
    • child item2

    I need all those items to be always visible (not expand them onhover or onclick). Is there some way to do that?

    Thank you.

    Hello Filip Salwender,

    Here is one suggestion to accomplish the scenario:

          Initially set the root items as expanded using the following code:

    Client code:
        function OnClientLoad(sender, args) { 
            for (var i = 0; i < sender.get_items().get_count(); i++) { 
                sender.get_items().getItem(i).open(); // Set the root items as expanded 

           Now in the 'OnClientItemClosing'  event, check for the item and if the item is root item, then cancel the event.

    Client Code:
        function OnClientItemClosing(sender, args) { 
            if (args.get_item().get_level() == 0) { 

    And here is the the aspx markup:
    <telerik:RadMenu OnClientItemClosing="OnClientItemClosing" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad" 
        Width="1000px" ID="RadMenu2" runat="server"
         . . .
