How to disable the context menu in WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

Hide the context menu

In the EditControl, the Context menu can be displayed by right clicking on its text context, and it can be hidden by using its function ClearMenu. Refer to the following code example.


//To handle MenuFill event, the end user can customize the context menu 
this.editControl1.MenuFill += editControl1_MenuFill;
void editControl1_MenuFill(object sender, EventArgs e)
    ContextMenuManager menu = (ContextMenuManager)sender;
    //Clear the menu



'To handle MenuFill event, the end user can customize the context menu
AddHandler Me.editControl1.MenuFill, AddressOf editControl1_MenuFill
Private Sub editControl1_MenuFill(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim menu As ContextMenuManager = CType(sender, ContextMenuManager)
    'Clear the menu
End Sub
