I am trying to match menu colors/styles to an existing web site, so none of your great supplied skins match the color schemes of the existing site.  In trying to control the menus without a skin, I am encountering a border with white space all around each menu and item (see attached screen capture).

What properties or css properties do I need to utilize (in what manner) in order to eliminate this spacing issue?

The code for the menu as pictured is:

        <telerik:RadMenu ID="RadMenu2" runat="server">  
            <Items>  
                <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="True"   
                    Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="White"   
                    NavigateUrl="Default.aspx" Text="Home">  
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="True"   
                    Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="White" Text="Overview"   
                    BorderColor="#212121">  
                    <Items>  
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="False"    
                            NavigateUrl="HowWeWork.aspx" Text="How We Work" ForeColor="#FF8000">  
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="False"   
                            Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="#FF8000"   
                            NavigateUrl="ProdsAndSvcs.aspx" Text="Our Products And Services">  
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="False"   
                            Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="#FF8000"   
                            NavigateUrl="TransTypes.aspx" Text="Transaction Types">  
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="False"   
                            Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="#FF8000"   
                            NavigateUrl="PropertyTypes.aspx" Text="Property Types">  
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                    </Items>  
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="True"   
                    Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="White" Text="My Account" BorderStyle="None"  >  
                    <Items>  
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="false"   
                            Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="#FF8000" Text="My Dashboard" BorderStyle="None">  
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem runat="server" BackColor="#212121" Font-Bold="false"   
                            Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="#FF8000" Text="My Reward Points" BorderStyle="None" >  
                        </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
                    </Items>  
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>  
            </Items>  
        </telerik:RadMenu> 
Please bear in mind that the colors, fonts, etc. are not those of the targeted web site, but just simple settings we are using to learn how to control the look and feel of the menus without skins.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Lynn,

You should set EnabledEmbeddedSkins property to "false" and Skin property to empty string:

<telerik:RadMenu ID="RadMenu2" runat="server" Skin="" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false">

the following styles also set padding for root items ("rmRootGroup") and child items ("rmGroup"), also the text-underline property is removed:

div.RadMenu .rmLink
{
    text-decoration: none;
}
 
div.RadMenu .rmRootGroup .rmText {
    padding:5px 12px 6px 0;
}
 
div.RadMenu .rmGroup .rmText {
    padding:2px 12px 3px 0;
}

Thank you for the response, but I still am having the exact same problem.  The full source code of the .aspx page is:

div.RadMenu .rmLink  
{  
    text-decoration: none;  
}  
div.RadMenu .rmRootGroup .rmText  
{  
    padding:5px 12px 6px 0;  
}  
div.RadMenu .rmGroup .rmText  
{  
    padding:2px 12px 3px 0;  
The results of this code are shown in the new attached graphic.

Thanks!

Hi Lynn,

You missed to set  Skin and EnableEmbeddedSkins properties of the menu as I suggested.

Is there any inbuilt skin for telerik  radmenu for responsiveness. Means that menu strip works responsively for different devices. I tried Bootstrap Skin , but it is not work responsively. Need your help.

Hello,

The RadMenu's responsive capabilities come from the RenderMode set to the control and are not dependent on the skin. You can find more information on the Menu's responsive design and the different render modes in the Responsive Adaptive and Elastic Capabilities documentation article.
