        I am using the Rows drag and drop functionality in my grid. I have set the "Allow Column Header Context Menu" as 'False'. But i was able to get the context menu with the contents "Conditional Formatting,Column Chooser,Hide Column,Pinned State, Best Fit". How should i hide this?.

    Hello Surendar,

    I would suggest checking again the property you mentioned because in my tests (latest version) it is not showing the column header context menu once that has been set to false, but if that does not work for you, you can just register to the ContextMenuOpening event and cancel when the provider is the GridHeaderCellElement.

    void radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e)
        if (e.ContextMenuProvider is GridHeaderCellElement)
            e.Cancel = true;

    Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

    Best Regards,

    Hi Emanuel,
        Its working for me. I find the issue to be strange. What i did is i triggered the radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening event and no code was written there and i have not changed the property "Allow Column Header Context Menu" from 'False'.Now it is working for me. Then i removed the radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening event from the code and now also it works fine.I dont know why strange things are happennning here.Thank you.

    With Regards,
    S Surendar.

    Nevermind my previous post (edited here).  I was mistaken, the event was firing and your code does work.  The issue was because I had other code above it that was returning from the subroutine and thus your example code was never getting reached.  Sorry.

    Hi Taha,

    Please refer to the following help article which demonstrates how to replace the default context menu with your own: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/gridview-context-menus-custom-context-menus.html.

    I hope this helps
