    Create contextual and quick access desktop applications with RadialMenu for WPF and Silverlight. Modeled after popular Microsoft apps, the C1RadialMenu control gives you a unique and touch-friendly alternative to the traditional context menu.

    Make the most of RadialMenu for WPF and Silverlight by taking advantage of the following key features:

    The radial menus can be nested to any depth that you desire, and you can add as many items to the radial menu as you need to add. The C1RadialMenu control will automatically create the sectors based on the number of items your control contains.

    You can specify the exact position of each item within the C1RadialMenu control and you can even specify the angle at which the items begin.

    Each menu item can contain any number of submenu items, and the C1RadialMenu control will show a selected item for each submenu. You can specify which submenu item is selected or allow the control to automatically select items based on the user's previous actions. So a frequently selected menu item that is not the default will be displayed on the main menu, allowing faster selection.

    By default, the C1RadialMenu control and its submenus will remain open even when a user clicks outside the radial menu. However, you can change this behavior by enabling the automatic collapsing feature. This will allow users to close a radial menu by clicking outside the control's boundaries.

    You can make any C1RadialMenuItem a checkable menu item by setting its IsCheckable property to True. In the C1RadialMenu, a checked item is marked similarly to a highlighted item instead of with a typical check mark.

    The C1RadialMenu control supports ClearStyle technology that allows you to easily change control brushes without having to override templates. By just setting a few brush properties in Visual Studio you can quickly style each part of the control.
