Slick site.  I particularly liked his modification of the ASPxMenu for touch.  Does he have a second ASPxMenu in the submenu Template for the first, or does he manually make the submenu visible based on the chosen main menu item?

Is there a declarative way to get an ASPxMenu (say bound to a SiteMap) into this kind of layout?

Thanks Richard.  To answer your question -- the menus are separate and I manually make the sub-menu (and certain sub-menu items) visible.  I created an XML schema to define sub-menu item visibility based on the selected main-menu item and the role (ASP.NET Role) of the user.  Using this XML document and Linq-to-XML, it was straightforward to dynamically configure the main-menu and sub-menu.

I'm not sure if there is a declarative way to implement this same (or similar, without the Roles filtering) functionality.
