Hello,
I am using your richtextbox to visualize simple text.
Following the threads in this forum I was able to configure the component correctly but the only piece that I am missing is how to customize the spell check popup (the one that appears when you have typed a wrong) to remove/hide the entries "Font...", "Paragraph...", Hyperlink...".
 Also I would like to edit its template to apply a different theme to its UI.
Browsing between its properties I was able to find the template for the "add to dictionary" dialog but not the check popup menu.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Frank

Hi Frank,

You can customize context menu in various ways (the article is a little outdated - now hyperlink commands are in separate group so you have to hide it as well). The ContextMenu class (the one that is used by default from RadRichTextbox) internally uses RadContextMenu, so you can customize its appearance by implicit styling. If the default context menu doesn't fit your need, you can completely replace it with your own one and RadRichTextBox  will load and use yours through MEF. In the latter case you should impement IContextMenu interface and mark your implementation with CustomContextMenuAttribute.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

Hello Tobias Riley,

One simple example of implicit styling is the following (when added to application resources):

<Application.Resources>
    <Style TargetType="telerik:RadContextMenu">
        <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="Comic Sans MS" />
    </Style>
</Application.Resources>

This changes the font of context menu to Comic Sans. 

Please find an example of sample custom context menu implementation in the attached project.

Best wishes,
