Context Menus

The Universal Grid Control provides context menus that can be invoked by right-clicking the grid’s visual elements and provide the ability to perform actions linked to these elements.

By default, the grid provides a column context menu that is invoked by right-clicking a column header and allows end-users to show/hide the Group Panel and Column Chooser and manage sorting and grouping.

Column Context Menu

Below is a list of properties that allow you to specify the grid’s context menus for certain visual elements.
