Hi all- 
I'm using a RadGridview (Telerik Winforms version 2018.1.220.40) and am having trouble setting the font size for the a) right click on column header sort options (ascending, descending, no sort etc)  and b) the list of filters (contains, equals, etc) that pops out to the side from the excel filter options.    (Dess helped me here with setting the font size for the excel filter box https://www.telerik.com/forums/radgridview-excel-filter-box-has-tiny-elements#jN8hkMsaPEuZCHiUFqAqFQ)  but I can't get the font right for the sorting options and the filter operators.    Basically the issue is that everything on the grid is 14 point font, but the sort options and filter operators list are 8.5 point. 

I've tried searching through the cell elements to find these items but I don't know what they're called (or else I'm not finding them...)   Also have googled but have had no luck.   Does anyone know the best way to set these font sizes? 

 

Thanks!

Hello, Evan,    

In order to change the font for the sort/filter options menu, you can handle the ContextMenuOpening event and set the Font property of the ContextMenu:
public RadForm1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    this.radGridView1.ContextMenuOpening+=radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening;
}
 
Font f = new Font("Arial", 12f, FontStyle.Italic);
private void radGridView1_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.ContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e)
{
    e.ContextMenu.Font = f;
}

I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.  
 
Regards,
Dess
