How to disable context menu for vertical scrollbar in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl

Disable the context menu

In GridControl, you can disable the context menu for scroll bar by cancelling the ShowContextMenu event. Here, context menu is handled by comparing the width of the ClientRectangle and the width of the mouse pointer for vertical scroll bar.


this.gridControl1.ShowContextMenu += gridControl1_ShowContextMenu;
void gridControl1_ShowContextMenu(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ShowContextMenuEventArgs e)
    Point c = this.gridControl1.GridPointToClient(e.Point);
   //Comparing the point for vertical scroll bar
    if (this.gridControl1.ClientRectangle.Width < c.X)
        //context menu has been handled
        e.Cancel = true;


AddHandler Me.gridControl1.ShowContextMenu, AddressOf gridControl1_ShowContextMenu
Private Sub gridControl1_ShowContextMenu(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ShowContextMenuEventArgs)
    Dim c As Point = Me.gridControl1.GridPointToClient(e.Point)
    ‘Comparing the point for vertical scroll bar
    If Me.gridControl1.ClientRectangle.Width < c.X Then
        'context menu has been handled
        e.Cancel = True
    End If
End Sub
