    I want to create a feature similar to Office where showing a context menu will also create a small context-specific floating toolbar nearby. I could start to hand-craft this but wanted to ask here first and see if my RadControls for WPF already has this capability. Basically I want control.ContextMenu = myMenuObj; control.ContextToolbar = myToolbarObj; and the two are tied together such that closing the context menu also hides the context toolbar.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello John,

    Currently we do not have a similar demo to show a Context Toolbars like the ones in MS Office on right button click. However, you can start developing this scenario and we can assist you with advices on our controls. Basically, you can place in one Popup ContextMenu and ToolBars or edit the default ControlTemplate of the RadContextMenu to provide a container / panel for ToolBars. We hope you will be able to use one of these approaches or another one which you find more appropriate. Let us know if you have any further questions.
