In MDI parent form, if the MDI child form is maximized, the child form is getting merged with the parent menu bar. Can you please help to get a separate menu bar for the MDI child form too. Please check and do the needful.

Hello,

The observed behavior is desired and when the MDI child gets maximized its menu will be merged to the menu of the parent. You can also refer to the documentation article about menu merge for more details: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/menus/menu/menu-merge/menu-merge.

The same behavior can be also observed with the standard forms and the System.Windows.Forms.MenuStrip control. The menu merge functionality in our RadMenu control can be disabled by setting the AllowMerge property to false. Please note, however, that if you set the property in this kind of scenario, you will lose the menu items of the MDI child form once you maximize it: 
public partial class RadForm1 : Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadForm
{
    public RadForm1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
 
        this.IsMdiContainer = true;
 
        this.radMenu1.AllowMerge = false;
    }
 
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        RadForm2 f = new RadForm2();
        f.MdiParent = this;
        f.Show();
    }
}

I hope this will help. Let me know if you have other questions.

Regards,
Hristo
