Built-in Context 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.

Tip: Set the Visible property of the NotificationMenu inner tag to false if you do not intend to use the menu in order to avoid loading its scripts and skins to the page.
