Hi,

Is it possible to custom the context menu on grid header?

In particular, I want to add a menu item for grouping my grid on one of the columns. That is the only one column my users are likely to group the grid, so I don't want to show the whole group panel.

I may want to add some anther menu items too.

Thanks.

Hi Kevin,

Currently there is no straight forward way to configure the context menu, but you can disable user-side grouping by setting the columns' AllowGrouping property to false:

// Disallow grouping for all columns 
for ( int i = 0; i < radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.Columns.Count; i++) 
    radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.Columns[i].AllowGrouping = false
 
// Allow grouping for the column "Company" 
radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.Columns["Company"].AllowGrouping = true

Context menu customization is on our plans and we hope to have it implemented by the end of the year. Let us know if the above workaround helps in your case.

 
Sincerely yours,

Has the grid header context menu been made customisable yet? I have a need to add an item to the standard menu to allow a user to reset any grid layout settings (i.e. delete any existing layout XML file). Is this possible?

EDIT: Please ignore - I found another post which deals with this issue. http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/winforms/gridview/how-to-override-default-context-menu.aspx

Hi Ben,

As you have noticed, you have the ability to customize the context menu in RadGridView. Please refer to the following help article for additional information: Custom Context Menus.
