Hi,

I am using menu, and binding it to the site map.

SiteMap:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<siteMap>
  <siteMapNode title="Masters">
    <siteMapNode controller="Country" action="Index" title="Country" />
    <siteMapNode controller="Test" action="Index" title="Test" />
  </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>

My Country action Index is decorated with custom authorize attribute. and Test Action is not decorated with Custom Authorize attribute. So it's obvious that If logged in user don't have permission on Country's Index action menu won't show that. But In my case user has access to Country but still menu hides it. If I access the country's index action from browser it is accessible. So I guess my Custom Authorize attribute works as expected.

I do understand that Telerik menu while rendering check for the Custom Authorize attribute and generate the same class dynamically and evaluate that whether the action is accessible or not and accordingly it displays the menu items. (http://weblogs.asp.net/rashid/archive/2009/09/06/asp-net-mvc-and-authorization-and-monkey-patching.aspx)

Here I want to know what's going wrong in my case. Can you please suggest how can i debug telerik menu's custom authorization attribute execution.? Or What possible reasons for this behavior?

Thanks.
