    Hi there,

    I have a RadContextMenu on a TreeListView and I've successfully hooked up the context menu to a command in my MVVM view model like this...


                <Style TargetType="telerik:RadMenuItem" BasedOn="{StaticResource RadMenuItemStyle}" d:DataContext="{d:DesignInstance data:IContextMenuItem}">
                  <Setter Property="Command" Value="{Binding Command}"/>

    This gets fired on both left clicks on the menu item as well as right clicks on the menu item.  Is it possible to handle right clicks separately?

    Hello Russel,

    You can register a ClassHandler to handle the right click like so:

    static MainWindow() 
        EventManager.RegisterClassHandler(typeof(RadMenuItem), Mouse.MouseDownEvent, new MouseButtonEventHandler(OnContextMenuOpening), false);
    public static void OnContextMenuOpening(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e) 
        if (e.RightButton == MouseButtonState.Pressed) 
            // your logic here

    Please let me know if this works for you.
