I am having an SfDataGrid with StackedColumnRow and I want to add an event that will be fired when I press right click only on StackedColumnRow in order to open a new config window. 

Does the SfDataGrid have a spesific event for this or is there a work around to achieve this goal?

Thank you

Hi Constantin,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your requirement and you can open a new window when right click on a stacked column by using MouseRightButtonDown event and shown in the below code snippet,

Code Snippet:

VisualContainer visualContainer;

        void dataGrid_MouseRightButtonDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)


            var point = e.GetPosition(this.dataGrid);

            var propertyInfo = dataGrid.GetType().GetProperty("VisualContainer", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance | System.Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic);

            visualContainer = propertyInfo.GetValue(dataGrid) as VisualContainer;

            var rowColumnIndex = visualContainer.PointToCellRowColumnIndex(point);

            var headerRowIndex = dataGrid.GetHeaderIndex();

            if (rowColumnIndex.RowIndex < headerRowIndex)


                Window newWindow = new Window();




We have prepared a sample to achieve your requirement and please find the sample from the below location,
