    I have a RadNavigation where Parent nodes and Child nodes are programmatically created depending on what the user has access to.

    The dropdowns for the nodes and more (sandwich) menu are set to a fixed height depending on screen width size and if portrait or landscape.

    Some users are admin level users and have access to everything. The dropdowns do scroll to show more items in the menu but i noticed there is no indicator at the top and/or bottom of the dropdown that indicate there are more items at the top and/or bottom.  Is there a way to set up some kind of indicator?

    Please help!

    Hi Keith,

    I suppose that you tested the scenario on a mobile device as there scrollbars are hidden until you start to scroll. I am afraid that there is not such inbuilt functionality to add an indicator if dropdown is scrollable. A possible solution is to set a height that will not be divided by items height, so the last visible item will be cropped. Thereby a user will see that there are invisible items.

    The other solution is to add a custom indicator by jQuery after checking if scroll height is higher as height.
