  • New Theme Manager: Adds a new RadThemeManager component to the form.

  • Edit UI elements: Opens a dialog that displays the Element Hierarchy Editor. This editor lets you browse all the elements in the control, including the RadMenu itself and the UI elements that make up each menu item.

  • Theme Name: Select a theme name from the drop down list of themes available for that control. Selecting a theme allows you to change all aspects of the controls visual style at one time.

  • Edit Items: Opens the RadItem Collection Editor

  • Learning Center: Navigate to the Telerik help, code library projects or support forum.

  • Search: Search the Telerik site for a given string.

Each individual RadMenuItem within the RadMenu also has a Smart Tag. Use this Smart Tag to quickly toggle the AutoSize property, set the Text property, set the Image property and to display the Element Hierarchy Editor for the selected **RadMenuItem*8.
