    I am trying to implement a ContextMenu for a treeview control (WPF) by using your Telerik's online tutorial. However, I often get error message as I copy & paste the tutorial code.

    Here is what I have in XAML:
            <telerik:RadTreeView Canvas.Left="18" Canvas.Top="136" Height="615" Name="raceTreeView" Width="311" Background="Bisque" IsLineEnabled="True">
                <!-- This code segement implements a popup menu on the treeview.-->
                    <telerik:RadContextMenu ItemClick="TreeContextMenu_ItemClick">
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Add" />
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Delete" />
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Edit" />

    Here is the relevant segements in C# code-behind:
    using Telerik.Windows;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
    using Telerik.Windows.Data;


    private void TreeContextMenu_ItemClick(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)
        MenuItem item = (e.OriginalSource as RadMenuItem).DataContext as MenuItem;
        switch ( item.Text )
            case "Add":
            case "Edit":
            case "Delete":

    I get an error message on this line : switch ( item.Text )
    'System.Windows.Controls.MenuItem' does not contain a definition for 'Text' and no extension method 'Text' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Windows.Controls.MenuItem' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

    How can I solve this problem?


    Please disregard this post. I found the error.
