How to remove the menu item from docked window context menu in DockingManager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |

Context menu items in dock window caption can be customized using DockContextMenu event of DockingManager. The DockContextMenuEventArgs allows to add/remove the menu items using its ContextMenu option.  So, we can add/remove the ContextMenuItem by passing the corresponding BarItem to add/remove function.


Here we have added the new menu item "File" and removed the default menu items “Hide” and “Dock to”.  Please make use of the below ContextMenuItemText for remove the default menu items from context menu. 



Corresponding BarItem Text
