ASPxClientSpreadsheet.PopupMenuShowing Event

Occurs before the context menu is displayed and allows menu customization.

Declaration

PopupMenuShowing: ASPxClientEvent<ASPxClientSpreadsheetPopupMenuShowingEventHandler<ASPxClientSpreadsheet>>

Event Data

The PopupMenuShowing event handler receives an argument of the ASPxClientSpreadsheetPopupMenuShowingEventArgs type. The following properties provide information specific to this event.

Property Description
cancel Gets or sets a value indicating whether the action which raised the event should be canceled.
(Inherited from ASPxClientCancelEventArgs)

menuType Gets the currently displayed context menu's type.

Remarks

By handling the PopupMenuShowing client-side event, you can perform the following actions with the Spreadsheet's context menu:

See Online Demo: Context Menu Customization

Examples

This sample illustrates how to prevent the context menu display for worksheet tabs and to add a custom menu item to the context menu displayed for row headings.

The context menu is dynamically processed in the ASPxClientSpreadsheet.PopupMenuShowing client event. The current context menu type is determined through the ASPxClientSpreadsheetPopupMenuShowingEventArgs.menuType property. A custom menu item is implemented as a new item containing a custom command name.

Clicks on the custom menu item with the custom command name are processed by using the ASPxClientSpreadsheet.CustomCommandExecuted client event. Within its handler, the activated custom command is identified and the corresponding action (insertion of a row with the current date and time values) is performed through a callback to the server.
