Example 1: Styling RadMenu

<Grid> 
    <Grid.Resources> 
        <!-- If you are using the NoXaml binaries, you will have to base the style on the default one for the theme like so:  
        <Style TargetType="telerik:RadMenu" BasedOn="{StaticResource RadMenuStyle}">--> 
 
        <Style TargetType="telerik:RadMenu"> 
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red" /> 
        </Style> 
    </Grid.Resources> 
    <telerik:RadMenu VerticalAlignment="Top" > 
        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="File" /> 
        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Edit" /> 
    </telerik:RadMenu>
