Notification Menu

RadNotification offers a built-in context menu which can be used to extend the control and to attach some custom functionality. You can use it like the regular RadContextMenu - it supports multiple targets, fully customizable layout, many client-side events and more - essentially the full functionality of the RadContextMenu is employed in RadNotification.

If the ShowTitleMenu property is set to true the menu icon will appear next to the close button in the titlebar. You can use both the left and the right mouse buttons to invoke this menu.

To activate the Notification Menu you need to declare some items in it and also a target. In this case the ShowTitleMenu property is used:

<telerik:RadNotification RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="RadNotification1" VisibleOnPageLoad="true"
    ShowTitleMenu="true" Text="Sample notification text">
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Open Item">
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Flag Item">
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Delete Item">
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Mark As Read">

If you do not need the menu, set its Visible property to false, so it does not render on the page at all. This will reduce the amount of scripts, stylesheets and HTML that are loaded.
