    I have two questions.
    First isn't neccesairly related to a context menu. How can bind the IsEnabled property to whether or not a selected item in a datagrid matches a criteria.  The criteria being a property from the datasource called Status value being between 15 and 40. I could run a check afterwards in the VB codebehind before actually executing something from the context menu, but I would like it to be displayed as greyed out for the user. I am using RIA services and binding to a domaindatasource.

    Second is something I ran accross while trying to find a solution for #1, is whether you can bind the header values in the radcontextmenu to a datasource. I was just doing this to check the binding but it comes up as an empty entry in the context menu.

    Here is a snippet of what I was working with.




    telerik:RadGridView x:Name="ProjectGrid" ItemsSource="{Binding ElementName=ProjectData,Path=Data}" DataContext="{StaticResource ProjectTemplate}">
                    <telerik:RadContextMenu DataContext="{Binding ElementName=ProjectGrid,Path=SelectedItem}">
                            <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Collect $200 and Pass Go" IsEnabled=" "/>
                            <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="{Binding ElementName=ProjectGrid,Path=SelectedItem.First}"/>
                            <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="{Binding Status}"/>

    You can use RowStyleSelector to achieve your goal. Please refer to our demos for more info.
    As to the context menu you have to bind it like so:

    <telerik:RadGridView Grid.Row="0" 
                                ItemsSource="{Binding Clubs}"
                                RowDetailsTemplate="{StaticResource RowDetailsTemplate}"
                                       <telerik:RadContextMenu >
                           <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="{Binding Path=Menu.UIElement.SelectedItem.Name,  RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />
                                           <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Menu Header"/>
                                           <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Menu Item"/>
                                   <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}"/>
                                   <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Established}"
                                   <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding StadiumCapacity}" 

    Where the "Name" in the SelectedItem is the property of the object in the ViewModel to which the GridView is bound.
    Attached I am sending you the sample project I used for reference.

    Hope this helps.
