Hello, I am having a bit of a weird issue. It seems the mouse down event / context menu only fires when I click the the border line of the control but not the inside of the control. When I click the inside of the control I get the default windows right click menu. Is there a way to fix this? 

 Private Sub txtHomePath_MouseDown(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs) Handles txtHomePath.MouseDown
        If e.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
            Dim c As New RadDropDownMenu
            c.BeginInit()
            c.ThemeName = Me.ThemeName
            Dim item As New RadMenuItem("Delete Folder") With {.Image = My.Resources.folder_delete_fatcow.GetThumbnailImage(16, 16, Nothing, Nothing)}
            AddHandler item.Click, AddressOf DeleteFolder
            c.Items.Add(item)
            c.EndInit()
            c.Show(Control.MousePosition)
      End If

    End Sub

Hello, Bill,   

Please have in mind that RadTextBox internally hosts the standard MS TextBox. That is why you are observing the default context menu when right-clicking the RadTextBox control. The following code snippet demonstrates how to eliminate the default context menu: 
Me.RadTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.HostedControl.ContextMenuStrip = New ContextMenuStrip()
If you want to assign a context menu for RadTextBox, feel free to use the suggested approach in the following help article:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/menus/contextmenu/assign-radcontextmenu-to-telerik-and-non-telerik-controls 

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
