    I have a site (Rad AJAX 2010 Q1 C# 3.5) that has a masterpage that contains a RadMenu.  The contents of my radmenu is populated by an XML file (I have many XML files for different user roles).  What I'd like to have is when a menu item is selected, the content page  is loaded w/o re-loading the master page.  I saw a thread from a year ago showing a way to do this if all of the things to be shown in the content page are .ascx controls.  Converting a fairly sizable number of aspx content pages to ASCX' is more of a refactoring than I can afford to do now.  Since the ascx suggestion to do something like this is a year or so old and there are new controls like XMLHttpPanel out now - is it possible to accomplish this concept now w/o the ascx refactor suggestion.  An extra bonus would be to have a loading... graphic displayed during the content page load.  If its possible to get an example of how to do this I am sure that other developers would benefit by it.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Ajenski,

    If you handle ItemClick for RadMenu, then I am not aware of any way to change the content page without using ascx user controls. You could of course pass a parameter in ItemClick to update the content page. Or, you can handle OnClientItemClicking to initiate content load client-side as shown in this demo.

    If you elaborate on your case, we might be able to offer more specific suggestions.
