    Is there a way to get the selected item when performing a 'right click" in the Timeline? I have set up a context menu for the elements in my timeline, but

    I have no way of getting to the object that was right-clicked. If you left click first and then right-click, I am able to get the selected item, but there appears

    to be no method via "right click".

    Hi Pavel,

    You can handle the RadContextMenu's Opened event and then get the clicked element with its GetClickedElement method. Then you can set the RadTimeline's SelectedItem to this element's underlying DataItem. Here is an example of how you can do that:

    private void RadContextMenu_Opened(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                var timelineItemControl = this.radContextMenu.GetClickedElement<TimelineItemControl>();
                var timelineDataItem = timelineItemControl.DataContext as TimelineDataItem;
                this.radTimeline.SelectedItem = timelineDataItem.DataItem;

    You can also read some more about the Selection in RadTimeline in our documentation.

    I hope this is helpful. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
