    How would I go about adding a RadContextMenu to a RadGridView programmatically? I am building the RadGridView completely in code at runtime, and don't have a predefined XAML component.

    The RadGridView only seems to have a ContextMenu that can be set, but I can't hook a RadContextMenu to the ContextMenu property.

    Any advice? I need this so I can have the row that is right-clicked selected, and I can look at the current cell so that I can have specific menu items added to the context menu.

    Hi Mike,

    Please check this article where you will find useful information how to set RadContextMenu. In your case you should use something like this:
    RadGridView grid = new RadGridView();
    RadContextMenu contextMenu = new RadContextMenu();
    contextMenu.Items.Add (new RadMenuItem { Header = "Item 1" } );
    RadContextMenu.SetContextMenu(grid, contextMenu);

    Hopefully this helps.
