Hi, how do I display the grid's context menu if there are no rows in the grid? I want to right click in the white space and show the context menu.

Thanks,

Hello Kim,

Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

In order to achieve your goal, please have a look at the following code snippet:
ContextMenu contextMenu = new ContextMenu();
 
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
 
    this.radGridView1.MouseDown += radGridView1_MouseDown;
    contextMenu.MenuItems.Add(new MenuItem("Item 1"));
    contextMenu.MenuItems.Add(new MenuItem("Item 2"));
}
 
private void radGridView1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    RadGridView grid = sender as RadGridView;
    if (grid != null && e.Button == System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right)
    {
        grid.ContextMenu = contextMenu;
        grid.ContextMenu.Show(grid, e.Location);
    }
}

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

Regards,
Desislava
