Context menu

To display a context menu based on the cell value in grid, use the TableControl.MouseDown event. In this event, a specific cell value can be retrieved from the current record using the current cell style and setting the ContextMenu based on the cell value.


//Event Subscription
 this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.MouseDown += TableControl_MouseDown;
//Event Customization
 private void TableControl_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
        int rowIndex, colIndex;
        this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.PointToRowCol(e.Location, out rowIndex, out colIndex);
        //To get the current cell style.
        GridTableCellStyleInfo style = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.GetTableViewStyleInfo(rowIndex, colIndex);
        //To get the record.
        Record record = style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.GetRecord();
        if(record != null)
            bool value;
            string boolValue = record.GetValue("Boolean").ToString();
            if (bool.TryParse(boolValue, out value) && value)
                this.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu = null;
           else if (this.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu == null)
                this.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu = menu;
            //To avoid the contextmenu for header row.
            this.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu = null;


'Event Subscription
AddHandler Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.MouseDown, AddressOf TableControl_MouseDown
'Event Customization
Private Sub TableControl_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseEventArgs)
   If e.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
       Dim rowIndex, colIndex As Integer
       Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.PointToRowCol(e.Location, rowIndex, colIndex)
       'To get the current cell style.
       Dim style As GridTableCellStyleInfo = Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.GetTableViewStyleInfo(rowIndex, colIndex)
       'To get the record.
       Dim record As Record = style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.GetRecord()
       If record IsNot Nothing Then
          Dim value As Boolean
          Dim boolValue As String = record.GetValue("Boolean").ToString()
          If Boolean.TryParse(boolValue, value) AndAlso value Then
  Me.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu = Nothing
          ElseIf Me.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu Is Nothing Then
   Me.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu = menu_Renamed
          End If
  'To avoid the contextmenu for header row.
  Me.gridGroupingControl1.ContextMenu = Nothing
          End If
       End If
End Sub
