Hi,

      I am working on contextMenu for grid. Currently, the grid has some data rows and the rest area is empty. ContextMenu on data rows works fine. However, I also need to right-click on the empty area of the grid, then I need to show a contextmenu(for example, "add new" function) and remove selection of the current grid data rows. How could I do it? Thanks for your help.

For more information, I use following code to handle selection on grid data row.

$("#Grid").on("mousedown", "tr[role='row']", function (e) {
        if (e.which === 3) {
            $("tr").removeClass("k-state-selected");
            $(this).toggleClass("k-state-selected");
        }
    });

FYI, I use the following code to handle selection on grid data rows.

$("#userManagementGrid").on("mousedown", "tr[role='row']", function (e) {
        if (e.which === 3) {
            $("tr").removeClass("k-state-selected");
            $(this).toggleClass("k-state-selected");
        }
    });

Hi,

     After trying different methods, here's my solution. If you have better solution, please let me know. Thanks.

$("#Grid").on("mousedown",  function (e) {
        if (e.which === 3) {
            if ($(e.target).closest('tr').length > 0) {
                $("tr").removeClass("k-state-selected");
                $(e.target).closest('tr').toggleClass("k-state-selected");
            }
            else {
                $("tr").removeClass("k-state-selected");
            }
           
        }
    });

Hi James,

You can use the Grid APIs to select and deselect rows. To clear the current selection, call clearSelection. And then call grid.select($(e.target).closest('tr')) to select the clicked row if the click was inside the rows list. This is especially recommended if you are using the persist selection feature.

As for the context menu, did you manage to get is working as needed, too or do you need help with showing it in the empty area? If you need help, please show us the code you have until now for creating and showing the context menu.
