Identify a column on right clicking on the column's header


I have a GridGroupingControl. I would like to do a custom action with the column, say a custom "hide column".

There is a way to identify the column name when right clicking (I display a context menu by the way) on the column's header or cell?

I have a ContextMenuStrip_Opening, but it does not bring any info about the column.
I have also myGrid_TableControlCellClick but this one action only on the cell and only on the left click...

Hi Serhio,


Thank you for using Syncfusion products.


We would like to let you know that we can get the current column index while right clicking by using the following code snippet.



this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlMouseDown += new GridTableControlMouseEventHandler(gridGroupingControl1_TableControlMouseDown);

void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlMouseDown(object sender, GridTableControlMouseEventArgs e)


if (e.Inner.Button == System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right)


GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.CurrentCell;





Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
