    In my application, I make use of several RadMenus and RacContextMenus.  Users have noticed that when the menus are open and they attempt to click on something else in the application that the click will close the menu but not click the item...

    For example, (see the attached screenshot)....  if I have the RadMenu open and I try to click on the "Vertical" radio button on the right, the menu will close but the "Vertical" radio will not be checked.

    Is there some way that I can tell the RadMenu to propogate the click event to the application instead of just closing itself and eating the event?  I was hoping for some sort of property I could turn on like "AllowExternalClicksToPropogate" :)

    Hello Rob,

    When you open a RadMenu, an invisible canvas is loaded behind it, so all of the mouse click events outside the menu will be handled by this canvas and when you click somewhere the menu will close. Otherwise it will stay open. Currently it is not possible to remove this behavior.
