Roger asked on 25 Feb 2022, 10:35 PM

I have an MDI RadForm with several Menu Items (File, Window, Help etc.)

 

When I open a new child window the Child Menu (Search) is put up in the MDI Menu but in the last position. 

Can I change it to be placed between Window and Help?

I have other Child Form Menu's I would like to do this with as well.


I didn't see how I could order them (Event etc).

 

Thanks

Hello, Roger,

RadMenu automatically discovers that it is placed in a child MDI form. When a child MDI form is maximized, RadMenu automatically merges the Menu items in the parent form using the MergeType and MergeOrder properties defined for each RadMenuItem. When a child form is restored/minimized, the parent menu state is restored. You can refer to the following help article giving more information about the different MergeType and MergeOrder options:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/menus/menu/menu-merge/menu-merge 

However, we already have a known issue that the MergeOrder property is not taken under consideration when the menu is merged in MDI mode. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link:

Feel free to use the provided workaround in the referred feedback item.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
