    I'm using the RadContextMenu with the RadTree. Apologies if this should be in the Menu forum... please move if appropriate.

    When I right click on a tree node the context menu pops up for the correct node on the tree  but there is no indication/hightlighting that on the tree node itself that it has selected it. I've watched a few people try to use it and they always right then left click to reassure themselves that they have the correct node selected! It's a HCI issue...

    I realise that a tree node should not automatically be "Selected" when a user context clicks on it.... but it should indicate.
    The tree in Windows Explorer, Outlook etc retains the current selection when you right click on a new node.

    For most Master/Details views this is correct behavior:
    Left clicking on a node in the tree should change the details view - a right click should not do so automatically as it might be a data/cpu bound operation.

    Hello Ciaran,

    thank you for bringing this to our attention. This feature needs to be imeplemented in the RadTreeView itself to recognize when a context menu is opened. We logged this in our feature list and will implement it for a future release.
