    There does not seem to be any keyboard shortcuts for the Silverlight menu control. 

    Section 508 compliance requires that you be able to use the system without a mouse and that there be keyboard short cuts for anything you can do with a mouse.  This is a serious issue for those of us developing for the government and whose systems must be Section 508 compliant.

    Please let me know if this functionality has been added or you have work around.

    Hello Mike,

    Currently RadMenu for Silverlight is not supporting keyboard shortcuts, however you can navigate with the keyboard between items using the arrows and Enter. We know that we have some gaps in our Section 508 support and we are working constantly to improve it. The bad thing is that I am not aware of any workaround for this issue. I have created a Pits item for your request and you can follow its progress here.

    Please, excuse us for the inconvenience. We have added points to your account for the suggestions. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
