    I am using a RadContextMenu and RadGrid in combiation. The RadContextMenu is showing possible actions for a row in the RadGrid. Some of the actions are loading using a WCF service.

    After upgrading to .NET 4.0 this has stopped working.

    Using Firebug I can see that the RadContextMenu is getting the extra actions from the WCF service and the menu that appears is sized as if there is something to display, but its all blank and nothing happens when I click in it.

    I am using VS2010, IIS7, the latest Telerik version, ASP.NET 4.0.

    Hope someone can offer some help.


    My menu:
    <telerik:RadContextMenu ID="rcmLines" runat="server" OnItemClick="rcmLines_ItemClick" >
      <WebServiceSettings Path="~/BudgetServices.svc" Method="GetEntryAccountMenuItems" />
        <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Ignore" Value="I" />
        <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Locate pair" Value="P" />
        <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Set entry account" ExpandMode="WebService" >
          <GroupSettings Height="300px" />

    The JavaScript invoked from the RadGrid:
        function PopLineMenu(sender, eventArgs) {
          var menu = $find("<%= rcmLines.ClientID %>");
          var evt = eventArgs.get_domEvent();

          if ( == "INPUT" || == "A") {

          var index = eventArgs.get_itemIndexHierarchical();
          document.getElementById("lineIndex").value = index;

          sender.get_masterTableView().selectItem(sender.get_masterTableView().get_dataItems()[index].get_element(), true);


          evt.cancelBubble = true;
          evt.returnValue = false;

          if (evt.stopPropagation) {
    The method being called:
            public RadMenuItemData[] GetEntryAccountMenuItems() {
                var list = AppContext.DefaultAccountPlan.NonSumEntryAccounts;
                var array = list.ConvertAll(x => new RadMenuItemData {Text = x.NameAndNumber, Value = "Id:"+x.Id}).ToArray();
                return array;

    Hi Thomas,

    I've tested with a similar setup and everything seems to be working fine. Please make sure that you're using the 4.0 build of RadControls.

    Maybe something else on the page is interfering with the menu. It will be great if you can send us a running site with this page alone, so we can try to debug the problem.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
