My understanding is that what is available in RadControls for Silverlight should be also available in RadControls for WPF. Is it correct?

Hello Stephane,

We don't have plans to migrate the Silverlight RadMenu and RadContextMenu to WPF.

Why you need a ContextMenu for WPF? I believe that the default ContextMenu is powerful enough. No?

The reason is pretty simple, the WPF and Silverlight API are supposed to be shared. Here is the first feature presented for Telerik WPF product:
"Common codebase and shared API witth RadControls for Silverlight".
 
I agree that the ContextMenu is powerfull enough. The issue is that i write application module and those module could be used in application that could be hosted (silverlight) or run as windows app. So, i selected Telerik since i will not have to change the module code. The Telerik Treeview in silverlight and the Telerik treeview in windows will contain the same XAML and code behind in regard to context  menu. Imagine all the code with telerik control that you use in silverlight that you have to change to use the Microsoft WPF control. The control present in silverlight should be present in WPF.

Thanks

Hi Stephane,

Your points makes sense - we will re-evaluate the decision if the RadContextMenu should be available for WPF. With Q3 release it will not be converted to WPF for sure.

Thanks for your feedback.

All the best,

Hello Stephane:

I totally agree with you. I would like to have applications running in WPF and Silverlight without major changes.
Best regards,

Gonzalo

Hello all,

Yes - after an internal discussions we decided that *all* our Silverlight controls will have their WPF equivalent available. Of course we will need some time in order to do this, but we are definitely stick to it.

Thank you all for the feedback.

Kind regards,
