    Your help manual said "You need not call merge method if you want to use menu merge in a MDI application. RadMenu automatically discovers that it is placed in a child MDI form."
     But, RadDock in my application can not merge child menu atumatically.
    Please, show me how to merge menu of child form in menu of parent form.

    Hi Jaehong,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not support MenuMerge when you use a RadDock in your application. Drilling this down, when its AutoDetectMDIChildren property is set to True, RadDock turns the MDI Child Form to its own instance and excludes it from the MDIChildren collection of the MDIParent. So once added to RadDock, the Child Form cannot be referred as an MDI Form anymore (RadDock MDI Form Handling). Since the logic of Menu Merge does not handle such cases, the merge did not work automatically in your application.

    In case you would like to achieve this behavior, you will need to implement it manually. Here are some articles which you might find useful: RadMenuItem Overview, Adding and Removing Items, RadMenuItem Events.

    I hope you will find this useful. Let me know if I can assist you further.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
