Asked On April 28, 2008 12:58 PM UTC

I am using syncfusion GGC 6.1. I have to display context menu on right click of my mouse. Now my problem is that for header i have to show a different context menu and for cell click i have to show a different context menu. Now when i right click on header then both my context menu gets opened. Is there any way by which header displays only one menu and cells displays the other menu.

I will be very thankful if anyone could help me in this.

Hi Prabhjeet,

Thank you for posting query to us.

This can be achieved by handling the TableControl.MouseUp event of GridGroupingControl. Please refer the code:

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.MouseUp += new MouseEventHandler(TableControl_MouseUp);
void TableControl_MouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)

if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
GridTableControl tableControl = sender as GridTableControl;
GridTableCellStyleInfo style = (GridTableCellStyleInfo)tableControl.PointToTableCellStyle(new Point(e.X, e.Y));
Point pt = tableControl.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition);

if (style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.Kind == DisplayElementKind.ColumnHeader)
this.contextMenuStrip1.Show(tableControl, pt);

else if (style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.Kind == DisplayElementKind.Caption)
this.contextMenuStrip2.Show(tableControl, pt);

else if (style.TableCellIdentity.ColIndex == 0)
this.contextMenuStrip3.Show(tableControl, pt);

else if (style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.Kind == DisplayElementKind.Record)
this.contextMenuStrip4.Show(tableControl, pt);



Please refer the sample in the link to illustrate this:

Kindly try this and let me know if you need further assistance.
