I have a large menu which is populated on demand via a webservice as its the most efficient way of populating items (the tree is too large to load fully). However, there is a branch which has 'User Favourites', which are added to through a different interface elsewhere on the page. Ideally, I'd like to 'Add to Favourites' with an XMLHttPRequest to avoid posting back or redirecting, and then on the client side, 'un-cache' the user favourites branch, if it had been previously shown, and therefore cached in the browser.

I don't really want to manually add items to the Favourites menu if I can help it. The other option is to be able to set a single branch to 'do not cache', but I don't think this is possible is it?

Hello Andrew,

I am not quite sure that I understand completely the issue that you encounter with the RadMenu control. Is it that you can not cache the RadMenu or something else? For example you can take a look at this help article that explains how you can cache a user control that contains a RadMenu.

Kind regards,

In short, if I have client side caching ON for a RadMenu populated by a webservice, can I force a single branch to request its children every time its expanded...

Many thanks,

Hi Andrew,

Did you looked at the demo here that I believe would be very helpful for implementing the scenario that you need?
