    Hello Telerik team,

    I'm trying to disable the menu items if the user is not in certain role's i don't know why the ItemDataBound is not firing.
    Please see the code below.
    ## ASPX file........
      <telerik:RadMenu ID="RadMenu1" Text="MenuOne" runat="server" AccessKey="P" DataNavigateUrlField="Url" EnableShadows="true" Skin="default" EnableEmbeddedSkins="False" CssClass="dropDown" OnItemDataBound="RadMenu1_ItemDataBound" OnItemClick="RadMenu1_ItemClick" ></telerik:RadMenu>

    ## CS file..............
     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (!IsPostBack)
                    string xmlFileName = "~/xml/MainMenu.xml";

            protected void RadMenu1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadMenuEventArgs e)
                if (!Roles.IsUserInRole("Admin"))
                    XmlElement element = (XmlElement)e.Item.DataItem;
                    if (element.Attributes["text"].Value == "Contact History")
                        e.Item.Enabled = false;
            protected void RadMenu1_ItemClick(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadMenuEventArgs e)

    Hi Hem,

    ItemDataBound event is fired when the menu is bound to a datasource as explained here. You can use XmlDataSource to load the items from the xml and fire the event. This approach is demonstrated here.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
