    I am working on a control that is basically a dropdown with a popup content area...  The attached picture can explain it better than I can here. 

    I have started using ToggleButton with a RadContextMenu and it seems to work well.  I think my ultimate goal would be to simply have a giant ContentPresenter in the popup instead of using a RadContextMenu...  Until I figure that out, I can hack each RadMenuItem using a TemplateSelector and choose a different appearance for each one that will get me closer to my goal...

    That being said, I have one problem.  How can I "close" the popup when something other than the RadMenuItem receives the click event... for example if I click the Button "option 1"?  The context menu works fine if I click the RadMenuItem itself.

    Hi Rob,

    Button control handles MouseLeftButton Up/Down events. That is why RadMenuItem does not receive them and didn't close.
    There is no easy and clean way to handle this situation. Change the Button to some other control that doesn't handle Up/Down events and RadContextMenu will close.

    I hope this will help you.

    I figured out how to accomplish basically the same thing with this...





    void btnclose_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)





    RadContextMenu cm = (RadContextMenu)((Button)sender).Parent;


    cm.IsOpen =
