Hello,

Yes, just get your database value as a boolean and set the visible property according to the value.
If you need further help, please let me know
thanks

Hello,

Please have a look at this link which shows how to use ExecuteScaler in MS Access. You just need to return the boolean value from your database, based on the result of the ExecuteScaler. You may also find this MSDN Link on editing an Access Database useful.

hope that helps

Hello,

For the menu
Me.RadMenu1.Visible = False
or for an individual item
Me.RadMenuItem1.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed

hope that helps

Hello,

For the RadMenuItem, you would need to do something like this..
Private Function GetVisibility() As ElementVisibility
    ' db code 
    Dim returnValueFromDatabase As Boolean = False
    If returnValueFromDatabase Then
        Return ElementVisibility.Visible
    Else
        Return ElementVisibility.Collapsed
    End If
End Function

Me.RadMenuItem1.Visibility = GetVisibility()

hope that helps
Please remember to mark as answer
Thanks

Hello Dear

Richard, your solution is working well, but how to resize the radcontextmenu,  lets say I have 4 items in the ContextMenu:
1-Item1
2-Item2
3-Item3
4-Item4

And I want to hide some radmenuitem, so I put the following code :
RadMenuItem2.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Hidden
RadMenuItem3.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Hidden

How to resize the radcontextmenu and to display   :
1-Item1
4-Item 4  

In my case I have 2 lines empty  between item1 & item 4  .
So how to make them Dock ?

Hello,

You can set the element's Visibility to Collapsed and the menu will be sized correctly.

I hope this helps.
