    Hi there

    I have recently started developing with the Rad Controls and have a question.....

    We are experimenting with the RadMenu and have set it up to load the menu structure using the LoadContentFile method.

    This is working very well and we are able to generate menus based on the current users profile/membership.

    The issue is we can see no way to set the navigateURL property in the XML - How do we achieve this?

    I am aware that it can be done in code but is there anyway this property can be set in the XML?

    Ideally we want to manage the menu structure using numerous XML definitions as we need to customise the menu for each seperate client and would rather do this with simple updates to XML rather than editing code each time.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Ok no feedback yet so can anybody tell me....

    As we are using the LoadContentFile option to load an XML file where can I find the schema or a valid format that defines what can and cAnt be in the XML?

    After searching the forums I have found various and different examples of loading XML files but they all seem to differ??

    So can anybody point me at a full definition for valid xml used by the menu.

    Many thanks

    Hi Geoff,

    Please take a look at my example for binding the RadMenu to XML file. In the attached .xml file you can see the valid properties. Also if you need to add some additional properties to the menu items like Tooltip you can subscribe to the ItemDataBound event as described in this help topic
