Main menu control in Silverlight 4 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to build a "main menu" in SL 4 and VS 2010.

    Is there any control available in Silverlight to build the same? Also is there any sample code available for the same? Thank you.

  • the SIlverlight runtime does not have a "Menu Control"

    the Navigation Templates use Links as menu items and you can use any control to make a menu if you want to.

    there are several third party controls that are "Menu Controls" that you can buy.

    Silverlight doesn't provide built in menu control, but you can have a look at this menu control in codeplex:
