    Is there a right click/context menu available for the Rich text box?  If so where can I find the documentation?

    Hi Alan,

    RadRichTextBox has no default context menu attached. However, you can add one with a few lines of code by handling the MouseDown event. Here is a sample:
    RadDropDownMenu menu = new RadDropDownMenu();
    menu.Items.Add(new RadMenuItem("Item 1"));
    menu.Items.Add(new RadMenuItem("Item 2"));
    menu.Items.Add(new RadMenuItem("Item 3"));
    this.radRichTextBox1.MouseDown += new MouseEventHandler(radRichTextBox1_MouseDown);
    void radRichTextBox1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        if (e.Button == System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right)


    the Telerik team

    SP1 of Q3’11 of RadControls for WinForms is available for download (see what's new).
