    i have my Top menu in the master page file, and whenever i click on some page, i want the top manu to show under which page this is. i mean i want the top menu link to remain selected on page change.

    i believe there would be some selected Index for this, but i am unable to find it for Rad Menu,

    Please help.

    best regards

    Hello shahid Aziz,

    You can use SiteMenu or RadMenu controls and add the logic show below to the code behind of your control

    protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
           CmsSiteMapNode currentNode = SiteMap.CurrentNode as CmsSiteMapNode;
           while (currentNode != null && currentNode.ParentNode != null)
               if (currentNode.ParentNode != SiteMap.RootNode)
                   currentNode = (CmsSiteMapNode)currentNode.ParentNode;
           RadMenuItem item = this.RadMenu1.FindItemByUrl(this.ResolveUrl(currentNode.Url).ToString());
           if (item != null)
               item.Selected = true;
               item.SelectedCssClass = selectedItemCssClass;

    All the best,

    Small change to the code above would be to add in a check to see if currentNode is null. This check stops the code from breaking when the page you are editing is a template
    if (currentNode != null
                RadMenuItem item = this.RadMenu1.FindItemByUrl(this.ResolveUrl(currentNode.Url).ToString()); 
                if (item != null
                    item.Selected = true
                    item.SelectedCssClass = selectedItemCssClass;
