    We're using a customized RadDocking, having a RadSplitContainer > RadPaneGroup which is having TabStripPlacement="Top". The ContextMenu always shows the Header of the RadPane's (inside the RadPaneGroup) to select/activate them, any approch to customize the ContextMenu (e.g. add Custom Command) fails.

    Here some core code:

    <telerik:RadDocking >
        <telerik:RadSplitContainer InitialPosition="DockedTop">
            <telerik:RadPaneGroup TabStripPlacement="Top">
                <telerik:RadPane Header="Pane 1" IsSelected="True" />
                <telerik:RadPane Header="Pane 2"/>

    Here some code from the style:

    <Style TargetType="{x:Type telerik:RadPaneGroup}">
        <Setter Property="TopTemplate">
                <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type telerik:RadPaneGroup}">
                    <ToggleButton x:Name="DropDownButtonElement" Grid.Column="4" IsChecked="{Binding IsDropDownOpen, Mode=TwoWay, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}}" Visibility="Hidden">
                            <Telerik_Windows_Controls_TabControl:DropDownMenu x:Name="DropDownMenuElement" ClickToOpen="True" DisplayMemberPath="{TemplateBinding DropDownDisplayMemberPath}" ItemTemplate="{TemplateBinding ItemDropDownContentTemplate}" Placement="Bottom" Style="{TemplateBinding DropDownStyle}" StaysOpen="False"></Telerik_Windows_Controls_TabControl:DropDownMenu>

    How to change the part (think it should be inside <telerik:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu>) to get it working?

    Many Thanx!

    There is a ContextMenuTemplate property on the RadPane which can customize. You can see in the attached example how the DataTemlpate with menu inside is defined and applied on the second RadPane. You can set it pretty much the same way on first and reuse the menu template.

    I hope the attached project will help you.
