    Is it possible to disable keyboard support in the RadMenu?

    I'm using a RadContextMenu and a RadInput control to build a "wordwheel" type auto-complete text box.  As the user types, I populate the items in a RadContextMenu with the results of a web service call.  I'd like to implement keyboard support, but the keyboard events for the RadMenu are interfering.  I'd like to disable the native support for the arrow keys, tab, and enter on the menu, but I can't find a way to do this.

    Also, is there a CSS style for the currently "selected" menu item? I am calling item.set_selected(true), but there doesn't seem to be any visible indication of which item is selected in the menu.

    Thanks!

    Hi Joshua,

    Please add the following javascript code to your page in order to disable keyboard support of RadMenu:

    <script type="text/javascript"
        Telerik.Web.UI.RadMenuItem.prototype._onKeyDown = function(e) {);
    </script>

    Regarding the second question, please set EnableSelection property of the menu to true.

    Kind regards,
