    I'm looking to style my menu and I've attempted to do this by following the "Styling the RadMenuItem" documentation.  I open up my user control in expression blend, select the RadMenuItem in the "Objects and Timeline" panel and edit the style through Objects->Edit Style ->Edit a Copy (following the guide).  I name my style and click 'Ok'.  Unfortunately, I'm not getting the majority of the styling options (namely the Telerik properties).  I attached an image of the style properties I get from expression blend.

    Note:  I'm using a trial version of Expression Blend (not sure if that would make a difference or not).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello Tom,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Could you please share with us what exactly you are trying to achieve. Also, the style of the RadMenuItem contains ButtonChrome control, which represents the states of the MenuItem. If that is what you want to change, then you have to edit the ButtonChrome style. For more information you could refer to this KB article. Even though it is for WPF, it will give you general idea of the case. One for SL is coming soon.

    Hope this information helps. If you have further questions please let us know.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
