Asked On September 10, 2007 12:02 PM UTC

Hi there,
I am using syncfusion 4.402.0.51 and .NET 2.0

I have used edit control in my application to show the content from a file. It shows the file correctly, but i want to remove the default context menus available in the edit control also remove the shortcuts for them, and i need to add my custom menus with my shorcut to the context menu of the edit control.

How do i do that? if possible give me a working example.

Hi Sekar,

By Setting the EditControl.ContextMenuEnabled property to false value does disable the default context menu and the hot keys that get activated are associated with the editcontrol itself. And so if you want to disable the hot keys such as Ctrl +F and etc., you need to remove the corresponding key binding using the EditControl.KeyBinder.RemoveBinding(..) method. Set custom ContextMenu as EditControl ContextMenu. Below is the sample code snippet for your reference:

// Disable the default context menu
this.editControl1.ContextMenuEnabled = false;

//this will remove CtrlF shortcut
this.editControl1.KeyBinder.RemoveBinding(Keys.Control | Keys.F);

// Set custom ContextMenu as EditControl ContextMenu
this.editControl1.ContextMenu = this.contextMenu1;

Please refer to the attached sample that illustrates the same:

Please try with the above details and let me know if you have any questions.

So that i need not call for each key associated with that.

Hi Sekar,

Currently we do not provide support to remove all keybindings from EditControl. This has been confirmed as a Feature Request. We will implement this feature in our forthcoming new version releases or service pack releases. We usually have a timeframe of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors like product design, code compatibility and complexity. We will get back to you once the feature is implemented.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.
