Remarks

Use the BarManager.DXContextMenu attached property to assign an IPopupControl object to a UI element as this element's popup or context menu. When invoked by a mouse click (use the BarManager.SetMenuShowMouseButton method to specify exactly which mouse button displays a context menu), a popup is displayed relative to the cursor position. If invoked via a keyboard Menu (Application) key, the popup's position is specified according to the element's BarManager.DXContextMenuPlacement attached property value.

The BarManager.SetDXContextMenuPlacement method sets the BarManager.DXContextMenuPlacement attached property value for a specific UI element. To get the current context menu's position for an element, use the GetDXContextMenuPlacement method.
