Hello,
I was wondering if it's possible to have a dinamically created menu (with top level items and child items) based on some authorization with a layout similar to the top menu of current telerik homepage... my question is how do I auto arrange (spacing) the items??

Thanks
Paolo

Hi Paolo,

You can but you will have to edit a lot of templates. It would be best to use Expression Blend to edit the menu items. We have developed the menu in Silverlight to use ContainerBindings and HierarchicalDataTemplate so it support MVVM. You can see that here: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Menu/DataBinding

As for the layout you will have to use some sort of custom panel. For example the RadUniformGrid may be usefull here.

As for the sub menus you will have to put a lot of effort styling the RadMenuItems. We think to create similar example in our QSF but it is not ready yet and I do not know when it will be released. Creating a menu like the one on our homepage will need very skilled front-end-developer to edit all the templates of the menu so if you are not well familiar with XAML it would be quite difficult.

If you need further assistance we would be glad to help but you will have to do a lot of work.

All the best,
Panayot
