The following example demonstrates how to customize the grid’s context menu at runtime. This sample removes the default Show Column Chooser menu item from the Column Context Menu and adds a custom item instead.

Handle the DataViewBase.ShowGridMenu event. In the event handler, change the GridMenuEventArgs.Customizations collection to modify the list of menu items. To remove a menu item with its link, use the RemoveBarItemAndLinkAction instance. To add a custom menu item, add a new BarButtonItem object to the GridMenuEventArgs.Customizations collection.

View Example

    <dxg:TableView ShowGridMenu="TableView_ShowGridMenu" />
private void TableView_ShowGridMenu(object sender, GridMenuEventArgs e) {
    // Check whether this event was raised for a column's context menu.
    if (e.MenuType != GridMenuType.Column) return;

    // Remove the Column Chooser menu item.
    e.Customizations.Add(new RemoveBarItemAndLinkAction() { 
        ItemName = DefaultColumnMenuItemNames.ColumnChooser });

    // Create a custom menu item and add it to the context menu.
    BarButtonItem bi = new BarButtonItem();
    bi.Name = "customItem";
    bi.Content = "Custom Item";
    bi.ItemClick += new ItemClickEventHandler(customItem_ItemClick);

private void customItem_ItemClick(object sender, ItemClickEventArgs e) {
    // Implement the custom action.
    // ...
