How to disable the context menu on docked controls in WinForms Docking Manager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager

Context menu

The Context Menu can be disabled for docked and auto hidden controls by disabling the properties EnableContextMenu and EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu in DockingManager. The following code example is to demonstrate the same.


//To disable the context menu
this.dockingManager1.EnableContextMenu = false;
//To hide the menu button on docking manager
this.dockingManager1.MenuButtonEnabled = false;
//To set the dockable controls on autohide mode
this.dockingManager1.SetAutoHideOnLoad(this.panel3, true);
//To disable the context menu on auto hide tab
this.dockingManager1.EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = false;


'To disable the context menu
Me.dockingManager1.EnableContextMenu = False
'To hide the menu button on docking manager
Me.dockingManager1.MenuButtonEnabled = False
'To set the dockable controls on autohide mode
Me.dockingManager1.SetAutoHideOnLoad(Me.panel3, True)
'To disable the context menu on auto hide tab
Me.dockingManager1.EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = False
