    I created a context menu from the radreeview properties. When I create a new ContextMenu and click in  Items to add new items it works fine, but after a while (I don't know when exactly) when I try to access the Items properties of the MenuContext a visual studio message box appears with this message: "Object neference not set to an Isntance of an object".

    I didn't touch the aspx markup:
        <telerik:RadTreeView ID="RadTreeView1" Runat="server"  
                <telerik:RadTreeViewContextMenu ID="MenuContextMenu" runat="server"  
                    <expandanimation type="OutQuart" /> 
                    <defaultgroupsettings expanddirection="Auto" flow="Vertical" /> 
                    <collapseanimation duration="200" type="OutQuint" /> 
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" ExpandMode="ClientSide" Text="Add "  
                            <groupsettings expanddirection="Auto" flow="Vertical" /> 
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" ExpandMode="ClientSide" Text="Delete "  
                            <groupsettings expanddirection="Auto" flow="Vertical" /> 
                <telerik:RadTreeNode runat="server" ExpandMode="ClientSide"  
                    Text="Context Menu Test" Value="1"
            <CollapseAnimation Type="OutQuint" Duration="100"></CollapseAnimation> 
            <ExpandAnimation Type="OutQuart" Duration="100"></ExpandAnimation> 

    The project runs fine even when I modify the markup manually, it might be a VS interaction issue. Any ideas?

    Hi Ben,

    This seems like a glitch in the RadTreeViewContextMenu designer. Can you elaborate a bit finding the exact steps to reproduce the problem and report them to us?

    Kind regards,

    I'm experiencing the same. I have also noticed that the list of the context menus on the left hand side lists both of the context menus I have created as RadTreeViewContextMenu and not the IDs that I have assigned to the contextmenus.

    Renaming the IDs back to RadTreeViewContextMenu1 and RadTreeViewContextMenu2 does not make a difference.

    I do have two treeview controls on the page if that makes a difference.

    I am using VWD2008 Express.
