    Hi all,

    I have a Masterpage which contains a RadMenu, a Big company logo and some PlaceHolders.

    Is it possible when clicking on a RadMenuItem (which will load another content page) to show a RadLoadingPanel in the PlaceHolder ?
    And also avoid the company logo to reload/flicker again like when a full postback happens ?

    Thank you.

    Hello Nuno,

    Note that you can use ajax to ajaxify content on the current page so only part of the page content is reloaded per request. However when a new page should be loaded a full postback is performed so you cannot use ajax in this case.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Iana,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Thats why I ended up loading usercontrols dynamically.

    Best Regards,

    I generally use UserControls in MasterPage scenarios anyway, but I wanted to see how RadMenu would work in a MasterPage scenario calling different .aspx pages. After struggling for a few hours with some silly issues I finally got the menu to work exactly as I wanted (with proper setting of Selected RadMenuItem, etc), only to realize the whole page was flickering.  *grrrrrrr*  OK, so I'm going back to the UserControl method, which has it's own issues but flicker isn't one of them.

    I wish I had seen this thread before I started, but I didn't think there was going to be flicker until after I saw it.  :^b

    I wonder if there is some repository of wisdom somewhere where people have documented these paradigms. It may begin something like "we hold these truths to be self evident that all RadControls programs are not created equal, but perhaps that some should be more equal than others..."   I know a book was published this year on RadControls, but that talks more about the controls themselves, not about the nuances of how they're best used (or not) in various situations.  Perhaps it's time for another book?
