using DevExpress.LookAndFeel;
using DevExpress.Utils.Menu;

private void Form1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) {
    Control parentControl = this;
    Point pt;
    pt = e.Location;
    DXPopupMenu dxPopupMenu = new DXPopupMenu();
    DXButtonGroupItem buttonGroup = new DXButtonGroupItem();
    EventHandler handler = new EventHandler(ItemClick);
    buttonGroup.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Undo", handler, Image.FromFile("..\\..\\undo32x32.png")));
    buttonGroup.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Cut", handler, Image.FromFile("..\\..\\cut32x32.png")));
    buttonGroup.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Redo", handler, Image.FromFile("..\\..\\redo32x32.png")));
    dxPopupMenu.Items.Add(buttonGroup);
    buttonGroup = new DXButtonGroupItem();
    buttonGroup.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Bold", handler, Image.FromFile("..\\..\\bold32x32.png")));
    buttonGroup.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Italic", handler, Image.FromFile("..\\..\\italic32x32.png")));
    buttonGroup.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Underline", handler, Image.FromFile("..\\..\\underline32x32.png")));
    dxPopupMenu.Items.Add(buttonGroup);
    dxPopupMenu.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("About",handler));
    dxPopupMenu.Items.Add(new DXMenuItem("Exit",handler));
    dxPopupMenu.MenuViewType = MenuViewType.RibbonMiniToolbar;
    ((IDXDropDownControl)dxPopupMenu).Show(RibbonControl1, parentControl, pt);
}

void ItemClick (object sender, EventArgs e) {
    DXMenuItem item = sender as DXMenuItem;
    //You can identify an item by its caption
    //...
}
