    My special scenario is as follows:

    A topMenu with sublinks and a boxmenu with this sublinks on the page. I don't want to show the sublinks as expanded dropdown in the topMenu. The user should only one click on the top menu to reach the subpage, where the boxMenu will be visible. The links on the box menu should be "connected" with the topMenu to let the topLink as marked.

    So my idea, let the topMenu expanding disabled. I have created two sitemapProviders web.sitemapTop and web.siteMapBox with the related structure.

    With "expanding" the top-menu, all works fine. But I want to avoid expanding the TopMenu because of design-reasons (surely a bit user unfriendly...).

    When I delete the submenuItems from the TopSiteMap, the boxLinks don't let the TopMenuLink as marked...

    How can I disable the expand functionality of a radmenu (asp.net)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Lux,

    The Menu's sub-menus expand functionality cannot be disabled, however, the expansion can be cancelled. If you subscribe to the Menu's OnClientItemOpening you would be able to cancel this event with the set_cancel() method and the submenus will not be expanded when clicking on the root items:
    function OnClientItemOpening(sender, args) {
