Context menus can be associated with specific controls by using RadContextMenuManager, or can be shown at specified X/Y locations.
The RadContextMenuManager is a component available in the toolbox. Once dragged to the form, all Controls on the surface will expose a RadContextMenu property, which can be assigned to the available RadContextMenu instances, making it really easy to associate a context menu to any Control.
A content-sensitive context menu provides extra usability and richness to any application, and it’s available anywhere on the form with ContextMenu. Context menus can be associated with specific controls or popped up programmatically at any X/Y location by using Telerik ContextMenuManager.
Just like all Telerik RadMenu, RadContextMenu supports design time and run time customization, theme support, and nested controls.
All menus support multiline text in items, giving you the ability to display text on several lines, rather than truncating long text.
Images and text can be displayed on menu items, as well, giving you full control over the menu's look and feel. You can customize the image-text relation by setting the TextImageRelation property. Possible values include Overlay, ImageAboveText, TextAboveImage, TextBeforeImage and ImageBeforeText.
Menu controls in the Telerik UI for WinForms suite deliver convenience with full support for Shortcuts, Accelerator Keys and Arrow-key navigation. ContextMenu, for example, can be assigned shortcuts through the Shortcuts mechanism integrated in our framework.
All menus provide rich design-time support functionality, making customizations and configurations very easy. Some key capabilities include:
The control is shipped with a rich set of themes that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of some of the latest Windows and Office versions. The themes can be easily switched using a single property.
Our framework also features support for custom themes, which can be built from scratch to fit your exact visual demands by using the Visual Style Builder productivity tool.
