    I'm using a RadMenu and I have added two Separators.  How can I give them some type of visual appearance?  The separators added a small amount of additional space beween menu items but does not give any type of visual.  Do I need to add an image? What I would like to have is something close to "|" display.

        The Separators provide a visual bar for the horizontal menus by default so I am guessing you are doing this within the top level menu.  So a Separator added to the top level menu will add the spacing between menu items that you mentioned seeing.  One alternative to accomplish what you described with the "|" visual, you would need to use a RadMenuItem with an image then set the Enabled property to False so the user cannot click the menu entry. 

    Hope this helps,

    Hi John,

    Thank you for your question.

    To add a visual appearance of the separator you should only set the ShouldPaint property to "true". This will make the separator visible and you will be able to customize its appearance.

    My menu items are table driven, i.e. one item per record. How do I add seperators to group them into logical groups?
