    Can the full code for the webservice used in the online demo for binding prometheus menu to a webservice be posted. The stub does not help much for determining what we need to return from the webservice.

    Hello Kevin,

    The full code is available in the App_Code folder of the QSF - ProductCategories.cs. Here is the menu-related code:

    using System; 
    using System.Web; 
    using System.Collections; 
    using System.Collections.Generic; 
    using System.Collections.Specialized; 
    using System.Configuration; 
    using System.Data; 
    using System.Data.SqlClient; 
    using System.Threading; 
    using System.Web.Script.Services; 
    using System.Web.Services; 
    using System.Web.Services.Protocols; 
    using Telerik.Web.UI; 
    public class ProductCategories : WebService 
        public RadMenuItemData[] GetMenuCategories(RadMenuItemData item, object context) 
            IDictionary<stringobject> contextDictionary = (IDictionary<stringobject>) context; 
            DataTable productCategories = GetProductCategories(contextDictionary["CategoryID"]); 
            List<RadMenuItemData> result = new List<RadMenuItemData>(); 
            foreach (DataRow row in productCategories.Rows) 
                RadMenuItemData itemData = new RadMenuItemData(); 
                itemData.Text = row["Title"].ToString(); 
                itemData.Value = row["CategoryId"].ToString(); 
                if (Convert.ToInt32(row["ChildrenCount"]) > 0) 
                    itemData.ExpandMode = MenuItemExpandMode.WebService; 
            return result.ToArray(); 
        private DataTable GetProductCategories(object categoryId) 
            SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection( 
            SqlCommand selectCommand = 
                new SqlCommand( 
            ISNULL(pc2.ChildrenCount, 0) as ChildrenCount
        FROM ProductCategories as pc1
        LEFT JOIN
                SELECT   ParentId, COUNT(*) AS ChildrenCount
                FROM     ProductCategories
                Group By (ParentId)
            ) as pc2
            pc1.CategoryId = pc2.ParentId
        WHERE pc1.parentId = @parentId
            selectCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("parentId", categoryId); 
            SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(selectCommand); ; 
            DataTable productCategories = new DataTable(); 
            return productCategories;
