How can I recreate this example (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/Menu/Examples/MultiColumnMenu/DefaultCS.aspx) while using a sitemap datasource?

I bought the RadMenu with exactly this in mind!!  I've been looking through support areas all night and haven't found any "yes's."  In another forum Telerik said this was not possible, however.  I know the CSSAdapter for ASP.NET has something similar in VB where you can create a menu that creates the appropriate ul and li tags -- but, not in the mult-column format we're looking for -- only in one straight column.  I hope someone can help out with this, because writing out all the items is going to take me forever and I won't have a single area to update...it means I have to update the sitemap as well for my breadcrumbs and Quick Links.  There has to be a way to create a multi-column menu similar to the demo with the sitemap as the datasource.

Hi Farhan Jadavji,

The example that we provide relies on the ItemTemplate of the menu and static content (links). This cannot be achieved when binding to SiteMapDataSource unless lots of code is written to create static content out of child menu items. Basically it would be just the same as creating the menu from entirely from code.
