    Is there anyway to dynamically change the Expand direction of a Groupsetting by using a databind.

    My menu is generated by a datasource/databing and we wanted to simulate a "windows" like Start menu but dynamically setting up the expand direction is a problem.

    If I set it to "up" all the items overflow its parents, and the right direction should only happen after you expand the first set of items.

    Hello Elio,

    You can create an additional field that map to another property of menu items (custom attributes) that could hold a value for the ExpandDirection. Then you could use the ItemDataBound event to set those values and according to them you could set the expand direction as desired.
