    Hi Jaya,

    You can use the CellEditorInitialized event to access the editor and change the default context menu. Here is a complete example of this:
    RadContextMenu myMenu = new RadContextMenu();
    public RadForm1()
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
            myMenu.Items.Add(new RadMenuItem("Item" + i));
        radGridView1.DataSource = GetTable();
        radGridView1.CellEditorInitialized += RadGridView1_CellEditorInitialized;
    private void RadGridView1_CellEditorInitialized(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCellEventArgs e)
        var editor = e.ActiveEditor as RadTextBoxEditor;
        if (editor != null)
            var element = editor.EditorElement as RadTextBoxEditorElement;
            element.TextBoxItem.HostedControl.ContextMenu = new ContextMenu();
            element.TextBoxItem.HostedControl.MouseDown -= TextBoxItem_MouseDown;
            element.TextBoxItem.HostedControl.MouseDown += TextBoxItem_MouseDown;
    private void TextBoxItem_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        var textbox = sender as Control;
        myMenu.Show(textbox, e.Location);

    I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.
