Copy 'n Paste Popup

Hello- When I select some text in a cell I'm able to do a C and then V the selected text elsewhere. However the Copy 'n Paste popup does not appear on right click. Is this by design? Do I have to implement this myself? Thank You Mike Reynolds

The embedded text control used by Essential Grid is derived from RichTextBox. RichTextBox does not have a default context menu like the TextBox. So, yes, you will have to do this yourself. You can drop a context menu on your form, add its menuitems, and then set it to the embedded textbox after the textbox has been created. Below is a snippet.
private bool setOnlyOnce = true;
private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellStartEditing(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e)
	GridTextBoxControl tb = (GridTextBoxControl)this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CellRenderers["TextBox"].Control;
	if(tb != null && setOnlyOnce)
		tb.ContextMenu = this.contextMenu1;
		setOnlyOnce = false;
