    I have a context menu that's inside of a .NET repeater and I'm trying to use the menu's show method when a repeater row is clicked on. The menu shows when a row is clicked but I'm having trouble binding the menu to that particular row - clicking on any row of the repeater causes the menu to be bound to the last row in the repeater. I was wondering if there is a way to do this?

    The code is basically:

    <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" OnItemDataBound="rptSchedules_ItemDataBound">
    <tr data='<%# Eval("ddd") %>' runat="server" id="trItemRow" onclick="javascript: showConMenu(this,event); return false;">
    <%# GetFormattedDateDisplay(Eval("InTime"))%>
    <%# GetFormattedDateDisplay(Eval("OutTime"))%>
    <telerik:RadContextMenu runat="server" ID="ctxRowMenu" OnItemClick="TelerikMenuItemClick"
    OnClientItemClicked="Client_MenuClicked" OnClientLoad="conMenuLoad">
    <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Add" runat="server" PostBack="true">
    <telerik:ContextMenuControlTarget ControlID="trItemRow" />

    Sorry, I didn't include the JS on my original post:

    function showConMenu(sender, args) {
    var menu = contextMenu;
    if ((!e.relatedTarget) || (!$telerik.isDescendantOrSelf(contextMenu.get_element(), e.relatedTarget))) {;

    Hello Bill,

    As far as I could understand you are trying to add a RadContextMenu on click of an item of the Repeater. I am attaching my sample web page where similar behavior is implemented.

    Hope this will be helpful.

    Thank-you Plamen and I'm sorry I did not reply earlier. This is similar to the solution that we did use.

    I am having a similar problem and cannot really use your solution. In my case i have div in asp repeater with an ID="xyz" 

    then i have a RadContextMenu (doesnt matter if i put this is or out of repeater) and i set the <Targets> <telerik:ContextMenuElementTarget ElementID="xyz" /> </Targets>

    everything works great of first div, but 2nd, 3rd and so on its not working. Inside div i have an area which handles onclick to do something else. of that area oncontextmenu i am doing e.PreventDefault() to not show ie11 context menu. Will appreciate any help.


    Thank you,
