How can you disable the default context menu for the RadGridView?  We already have our right-click context menu control added to the form and have it working with the RadGridView; however, the default context menu is displayed behind it.  I would imagine it is very easy to disable I just haven't found out how to.

Thanks in advance.
Jeff

Hi Jeff Fillegar,

Thank you for contacting us and for your question.

In order to replace the default RadGridView context menu with yours, you should subscribe to the ContextMenuOpening event, where the Cancel property of ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs should be set to false.

public Form()
{
  this.radGridView.ContextMenuOpening += new ContextMenuOpeningEventHandler(radGridView_ContextMenuOpening);
}
 
private void radGridView_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
}

private void Form_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   this._menu = new ContextMenu();
   this._menu.MenuItems.Add("Item 1");
   this._menu.MenuItems.Add("Item 2");
   this.radGridView1.ContextMenu = this._menu;
}

If you have other questions, feel free to contact us again.

Best wishes,
Svett

I know this post is 9 years old, but you say to set Cancel to "false", but the code shows true.

Hello, Michael,    

I believe this is a typo. If you want to prevent the default context menu from showing it is necessary to be canceled by setting the ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs.Cancel property to true as it was demonstrated in Svetlin's reply.

In case you need to customize the default menu, you can refer to the following help article: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/context-menus/modifying-the-default-context-menu

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
