Customize the context menu

The context menu is highly customizable and allows the user to add custom menu items or delete the existing ones. It can be displayed using the Standard or Office2003 look and feel.

C#

//Add an event handler that is called each time the menu is dropped down where you can add custom menu items.
this.editControl1.MenuFill += new EventHandler(cm_FillMenu);
private void cm_FillMenu(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    ContextMenuManager cm = (ContextMenuManager) sender;
    // Add a separator
    cm.AddSeparator();
    // Add custom custom context menu items and their Click eventhandlers
    cm.AddMenuItem("&Find", new EventHandler(ShowFindDialog));
    cm.AddMenuItem("&Replace", new EventHandler(ShowReplaceDialog));
    cm.AddMenuItem("&Goto", new EventHandler(ShowGoToDialog));
}
void ShowFindDialog(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.editControl1.FindDialog();
}
void ShowReplaceDialog(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.editControl1.ReplaceDialog();
}
void ShowGoToDialog(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.editControl1.GoToDialog();
}

 

VB

'Add an event handler that is called each time the menu is dropped down where you can add custom menu items.
AddHandler Me.editControl1.MenuFill, AddressOf cm_FillMenu
Private Sub cm_FillMenu(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    Dim cm As ContextMenuManager = CType(sender, ContextMenuManager)
    ' Add a separator
    cm.AddSeparator()
    ' Add custom custom context menu items and their Click eventhandlers
    cm.AddMenuItem("&Find", New EventHandler(AddressOf ShowFindDialog))
    cm.AddMenuItem("&Replace", New EventHandler(AddressOf ShowReplaceDialog))
    cm.AddMenuItem("&Goto", New EventHandler(AddressOf ShowGoToDialog))
Sub ShowFindDialog(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    Me.editControl1.FindDialog()
End Sub
Sub ShowReplaceDialog(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    Me.editControl1.ReplaceDialog()
End Sub
Sub ShowGoToDialog(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    Me.editControl1.GoToDialog()
End Sub
