I have a RadTextBox and RadDropDownList (DropDown style) on a winform and when I right click at runtime the context menu that pops up contains the usual cut/copy/paste items but it also has "Right to left Reading order", "Show Unicode control characters", "Insert Unicode control character", "Open IME" and "Reconversion" items. How can I disable/hide these unwanted context menu items?

Thanks!

Hello guys,

RadDropDownList hosts the standard text box and you can remove its context menu by assigning a new ContextMenu instance to its ContextMenu property. Here is how to access the inner text box in RadDropDownList and do that:
radDropDownList1.DropDownListElement.EditableElement.TextBox.TextBoxItem.TextBoxControl.ContextMenu = new ContextMenu();

I hope this helps.
