    I may be missing something very obvious, but is there any reason why the RadMenuItem objects don't render an ID attribute? To circumvent this problem, I've created a custom RadMenuItem object that renders an ID, but shouldn't this be the standard or atleast an option to turn on/off on the RadMenu control?

    Hello Adam,

    The ID is not rendered in order to save space. With multiple naming containers the client IDs can become rather big.

    You can still force the rendering of the IDs if you need them:

    protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
        foreach (RadMenuItem menuItem in RadMenu1.GetAllItems())
            menuItem.Attributes["ID"] = menuItem.ClientID;

    I hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
