Hi,

I want to add a context menu when i click on the column header of the Windows form RadGridView control. I also want to add another context menu when i click on a row in the RadGridView.

How could i identify that Colum header is clicked or a row in the RadGridView  is clicked?

Hi Satyaprakash,

Thank you for writing.

You can easily do that by handling the ContextMenuOpening event of RadGridView as shown below:
void radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e) 
  { 
   if (e.ContextMenuProvider is GridHeaderCellElement) 
   { 
    e.ContextMenu = this.columnHeaderMenu; 
   } 
   else if (e.ContextMenuProvider is GridDataCellElement) 
   { 
    e.ContextMenu = this.rowMenu; 
   } 
  } 

I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please contact me.

Best wishes,

<telerik:RadGridView.ContextMenu>
    <ContextMenu IsVisibleChanged="ContextMenu_IsVisibleChanged">
        <MenuItem Header="Export To Excel" Command="Commands:GlobalCommands.ExportGridToExcel" 
                  CommandParameter="{Binding Path=PlacementTarget, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type ContextMenu}}}"/>
        <MenuItem Header="Export To Word" Command="Commands:GlobalCommands.ExportGridToWord"
                  CommandParameter="{Binding Path=PlacementTarget, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type ContextMenu}}}"/>
    </ContextMenu>
</telerik:RadGridView.ContextMenu>
Hello Team,
We are upgrading the telerik controls to q2 2011 version. In the previous version the Radgridview right click contextmenu was working fine, but not now. What do I have to change in the above code to get the popup menu when I right click the selected row?
Let me know.

Thanks
