If I specify that I dont want the title menu, why do you still render out the markup (and I assume then download the RadMenu scripts)?...doesn't that seem a little bloated?

Hi Steve,

 
I am not sure how you specify that you do not want the menu, but here is how the control is designed:

1) If you set ShowTitleMenu property to false, you can still have a menu associated with another target as shown in the demo:

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/notification/examples/notificationmenu/defaultcs.aspx


2) If you have not added any items, a blank menu is created - this is so to provide the ability to dynamically create and add items to the notification menu.

This being said, there is always a menu in order to provide more flexibility and cover more scenario.

However, I see your point and to achieve what you want you should set the Visible property of the menu (you can do this in markup or server code) to false - this will not load its scripts:


RadNotification1.NotificationMenu.Visible = false;




Please, test my suggestion and let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,

Oh that looks like it'll work, good idea.

We're using this as primarily a lightweight notification ("Your changes have been saved" kind of control)

Could you create a PITS to get the below implemented into a property in the markup perhaps for me?  I'd like to be able to enforce that from a .skin level for the rest of the devs (also...less coding ;).

Hi Steve,

 You could set Visible to false in the global Skin file you have used. e.g as shown below:

SkinFile.skin


<telerik:RadNotification runat="server"  SkinId="MySkin" >
  <NotificationMenu Visible="false"/>
  </telerik:RadNotification>

 


SamplePage.aspx:

<telerik:RadNotification ID="RNLogin" runat="server" SkinID="MySkin" >
        <ContentTemplate>
TEST
        </ContentTemplate>
    </telerik:RadNotification>


I tested this and it does what you require. Please, test it out and let me know how it goes.

All the best,
