What I'm successfully doing is to attach a ContextMenu to a Grid:

@(Html.Kendo().ContextMenu()
  .Name(@"menu")
  .Target(@"#grid")
  .Filter(@"tbody tr td")
  .Orientation(ContextMenuOrientation.Vertical)
  .Animation(false)
  .Events(evt => evt.Select(@"contextMenuItemSelect").Open(@"contextMenuOpen"))
  .Items(
      items =>
      {
      items.Add().Text(‚Äč"Rename");
      items.Add().Text("Delete");
      })
)

This works just as expected.

Now what I'm trying to do is to allow my Kendo context menu when clicking on a cell but show the browser's built-in menu when clicking on a link inside a cell. (See attached image)

I've tried various filters like .Filter(@"tbody tr td :not(a)") but this only results in a completely no-appearing context menu.

My question:

Is it possible to somehow achieve what I want?

Hello Uwe,

There is no viable solution that we could suggest for the current scenario. A possible workaround would be to add a CSS class to the cell containing the link and exclude it in the Context Menu filter configuration via jQuery's not selector. This way the context menu will not be shown for the whole cell, containing the link.
E.g.

.Target("#grid")
.Filter("tbody tr td:not(.linkCell)")

Hello Arpit,

By design the context menu is only opened on right click. In order to implement the current scenario, you could manually force the context menu to open by using it's open method. The open method accepts as parameters the coordinates where it should be opened.
