I added a context menu to a RadGridView and when I handle the Click I show a dialog.  The dialog pops up but somehow it does not have focus...even though I called ShowDialog.  I actually have to click on the dialog for it to have focus.  Also, the menu stays visible and it has focus.  If I hit the ESC key the context menu goes away and then the dialog gains focus.

1) how should I be handling the menu item being selected so that this won't happen?
2) where is there real documentation on context menus?

Hello Ken,

This may happen when using both RadGridView built-in context menu and the standard Microsoft context menu. You can either disable the integrated context menu, or customize it:
void radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e)
{
    // disable the integrated context menu
    e.Cancel = true;
}

void radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e)
{
    // add a custom menu item
    RadMenuItem item = new RadMenuItem("My menu item");
    item.Click +=new EventHandler(item_Click);
    e.ContextMenu.Items.Add(item);
}

Find more on how to handle RadGridView context menu in our online documentation

If you need further assistance, I will be glad to help.
