Ok, I've read about how the RadTextBox is the MS Hosted, but I'm not 100% what it all means.

Basically. I want to stop the default context menu from popping up, and add my RadContextMenu instead.

I have the RadcontectmenuManager added to the form, and the RadContextMenu property set in the radtextbox properties, but the default menu still appears,

Can this be done?

Thanks!

Hi Phillip,

Thank you for writing.

You have to do two things in order to show a RadContextMenu in RadTextBox. First, you have to replace the default context menu with an empty one and then you have to show the RadContextMenu from the MouseDown event handler of the hosted control in the RadTextBox. I have attached a sample project where I have implemented these steps.

I hope this will help you. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to ask.
