Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |

In order to hide a menu item in DockContextMenu, you have to handle the DockContextMenu event.


//To hide the "TabbedDocument" option in the context menu for the control "panel1"

void dockingManager1_DockContextMenu(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockContextMenuEventArgs arg)


if (arg.Owner == this.panel1)

arg.ContextMenu.ParentBarItem.Items[2].Visible = false;



'To hide the "TabbedDocument" option in the context menu for the control "panel1"

Private Sub dockingManager1_DockContextMenu(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal arg As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockContextMenuEventArgs)

If arg.Owner = Me.panel1 Then

arg.ContextMenu.ParentBarItem.Items(2).Visible = False

End If

End Sub
