    I am programmably creating the menu.  I am creating it like this:

    Dim menuItem = New RadMenuItem(siteMapItem.Text, siteMapItem.Value)
    If (siteMapItem.Route IsNot Nothing) Then
    menuItem.NavigateUrl = "~/" + siteMapItem.Route.Uri
    End If


    However, on the client, the value is always null when I do:

    var items = menu.get_allItems();

    for (var i = 0, len = items.length; i < len; i++) {
    var item = items[i];
    var val = item.get_value(); //always null

    Why is that?

    Hello Brian,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    Please keep in mind that the RadMenuItem constructor that you are using takes as second parameter navigateUrl, not value. If you want to set a value to the newly created RadMenuItem I would suggest you to use the following approach:
    //code behind
    Dim menuItem As New RadMenuItem() With { _
        .Text = siteMapItem.Text, _
        .Value = siteMapItem.Value _

    Kind regards,
