How to change the dock context menu during runtime in WinForms Docking Manager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager

Change the dock context menu

Whenever you right click on the caption bar of the Docked control, the DockContextMenu event will be triggered and the DockContextMenuEventArgs provides properties such as ContextMenu and Owner which can be used to change the associated popup menu.


//Declaration Part
private BarItem panelBar;
private BarItem treeViewBar;
private ParentBarItem NewPanel;
private ParentBarItem NewTreeView;
//Initialisation of Parent Bar Items
//DockContextMenu will be triggered when right click the mouse button on the Docking
//control caption bar.
private void dockingManager1_DockContextMenu(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockContextMenuEventArgs arg)
   //Get the context menu
   PopupMenu menu = arg.ContextMenu;
   //Checks whether the control is panel or treeview
   if(arg.Owner is Panel)
      //Add new parent bar item
      //Add new parent bar item



'Declaration Part
Private panelBar As BarItem
Private treeViewBar As BarItem
