in XAML: 

<telerik:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu>
    <telerik:RadContextMenu>
    <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 1"/>
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 2" Style="{StaticResource RadContextMenuItemStyle}" ItemsSource="{Binding Groups}"
                                       MouseEnter="RadMenuItem_MouseEnter" Loaded="RadMenuItem_Loaded" Name="cont">
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem.ItemContainerStyle>
                        <Style       TargetType="telerik:RadMenuItem">
                            <Setter Property="Header"            Value="{Binding Name}" />
                            <Setter Property="IsSeparator"            Value="{Binding IsSeparator}" />
                            <Setter Property="CommandParameter" Value="{Binding Id}"/>
                        </Style>
                    </telerik:RadMenuItem.ItemContainerStyle>
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Item 2" ItemsSource="{Binding Groups}"/>
    </telerik:RadContextMenu>
            </telerik:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu>

in xaml.cs:

        private void RadMenuItem_MouseEnter(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        {
            FillMethod();
        }


        private void FillMethod()
        {
            if (!f)
            {
                this.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(() =>
                                                {
                                                    var viewmodel =
                                                        (MainPageViewModel)
                                                        this.Resources["ViewModel"];
                                                    viewmodel.PopupCommand.Execute(null);
                                                });
            }
        }
        private bool f = false;
        private void RadMenuItem_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            f = false;
        }

in viewmodel:
        protected virtual void InvokePopup(object obj)
        {
            Groups = new List<Group>();
            Groups.Add(new Group {Name = "Loading...",Id = "---"});
            fillservice.GetGroups();
        }


        public MainPageViewModel()
        {
            fillservice = new MockFill();
            fillservice.Completeevent += FillContextMenuMethod;
            ActionCommand = new DelegateCommand<object>(InvokeAction,CanInvokeAction);
            PopupCommand = new DelegateCommand<object>(InvokePopup, CanInvokePopup);
            Groups = new List<Group>();
            Groups.Add(new Group {Name = "Loading...",Id = "---"});

        }


        private void FillContextMenuMethod(object sender, GroupsEventArgs e)
        {
            UIDispatcher.BeginInvoke(() =>
            {
                Groups = e.Groups.ToList();
            });
        }

Hi Andrey,

We have tried such scenario and we have set a solution for you. The problem is that if you try to remove all items in the collection, the RadContextMenu will close the popup as it doesn't have what to show. Meanwhile you are adding some items and this is causing the confusion.
In our simple application we are using Dispatcher to add items dynamically, but we remove all not needed items after we've added the new Groups.

Please check the attachment and inform us if you still have any concerns.

All the best,
