    I'm currently using RadControls_for_Silverlight_2009_2_0812_DEV. I set a content with RadContextMenu to a RadWindow. When I open multiple window and try to right click get the contextmenu from an unactive window, the contextmenu will popup but the window will not become active. Any solution that I can make the window become active when rightclick it? I have tried a solution by setting the RadWindow.BringToFront() on the RadContextMenu.Opened event but the window becomes active only after the contextmenu popup so the contextmenu is shown behind the window. Anyone has a better idea?

    By the way, I would like to know whether there is a latest build or release on RadControls for Silverlight 3.

    Thanks for any help and information.

    Hello Michael,

    I could suggest you is to use Mouse.AddMouseDownHandler method to add MouseDown handler to the RadWindow and to bring it to the front when this event is fired. I suggest you to inherit the RadWindow control and do this in its constructor. Here is an example:
    public class RadWindowWithContextMenu : RadWindow 
        public RadWindowWithContextMenu() 
            Mouse.AddMouseDownHandler(thisnew EventHandler<Telerik.Windows.Input.MouseButtonEventArgs>(OnMouseButtonDown)); 
        private void OnMouseButtonDown(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Input.MouseButtonEventArgs e) 

    Hope this helps.
