    I've read Connell's white paper on deploying the menu controls to SharePoint.

    I'm trying to deploy 5 other controls used by a web control I've written.  I see that the menu control's files have to be deployed to
    ....\web server extensions\wpresources\RadMenu.Net2\<version>__<public token>\RadControls...

    Our process for building the *.WSP is different to the one detailed by Connell (we don't use VS to build them) so I was wondering where the other controls's files go.  How does the RadMenu in his example know to look in "RadMenu.Net2\<version>__<public token>" for the root of the RadControls folder?

    I hope this question makes sense...

    Hi Michael,

    RadMenu looks for the RadControls folder in the root of the application by default. However, you can instruct the control to look for this folder in some other location by setting its RadControlsDir property. The Radcontrols folder can reside anywhere, as long as you specify the exact path via the RadControlsDir property.

    Note also that if you will use only the skins, you can just set the SkinsPath property. By default, RadMenu gets its javascript files from the embedded resources in the DLL. If you set UseEmbeddedScripts="false", then the menu will search for its java script in the RadControls folder. 
    I hope this helps.
