Hi,

I'm using RadContextMenu with the ContextMenuDocumentTarget and it works great because I can right click anywhere on the page to bring up the context menu.

However, is there an easy way I can keep using ContextMenuDocumentTarget but have it disabled on input controls like textboxes and text areas?

Basically, I want the default browser context menu to show up when right-clicking inside input controls, but every where else on the page, for the RadContextMenu to show. 

Thanks!

Hi Sam,

One approach that you can try is to check the target element and cancel the OnClientShowing event of the RadContextMenu. Thus you will prevent the menu from showing on the specific controls. Below you can find some very useful help articles that will provide with simple example to get you started:

Thanks Kate.  That's just what I needed.
This is what I ended up with

function OnClientShowing(menu, args) {
    var target = args.get_targetElement();
    if (target) {
        var elementType = "";
        elementType = target.nodeName.toLowerCase();
        if (elementType == "input" || elementType == "textarea") {
            args.set_cancel(true);
        }
    }
}
