    Sorry for the simple question, but this does not work:

    <telerik:RadMenuItem >
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Something}" />

    But this works:

    <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="{Binding Something}" />

    Hello Edward ,

    When you set the HeaderTemplate to DataTemplate the data context within will be the value of the Header property of the RadMenuItem. If you want to use the HeaderTemplate don't forget to set the Header.

    In other words the actual value that will be displayed within the RadMenuItem is the value of the Header property and the HeaderTemplate can be used to way the Header data is displayed.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
