Hi Ubaid,

One way you can do this by handling the MouseDown event of the grid and show the context menu when the header is clicked. Please refer to the attached sample for implementation and let me know if this helps.

private void gridControl1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) // Enters on Mouse Click Down
if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
GridControl grid = sender as GridControl;
int row, col;
grid.PointToRowCol(e.Location, out row, out col);
if (row != -1 && col != -1)
if( grid.Model[row,col].CellType == "Header")
this.contextMenu1.Show(this.gridControl1, e.Location);

Best Regards,
