How to: Customize the Popup Menu

  • 2 minutes to read

This example demonstrates how to customize the SchedulerControl‘s popup menus (the SchedulerMenuItemId.DefaultMenu in this case). To add, remove or modify items in a popup menu, handle the SchedulerControl.PopupMenuShowing event of a Scheduler Control, and then use the PopupMenuShowingEventArgs.Menu property.

View Example

using DevExpress.Utils.Menu;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler.Services;
using DevExpress.XtraScheduler.Commands;
// ...
private void schedulerControl1_PopupMenuShowing(object sender, PopupMenuShowingEventArgs e)
    if (e.Menu.Id == DevExpress.XtraScheduler.SchedulerMenuItemId.DefaultMenu)
        // Hide the "Change View To" menu item.
        SchedulerPopupMenu itemChangeViewTo = e.Menu.GetPopupMenuById(SchedulerMenuItemId.SwitchViewMenu);
        itemChangeViewTo.Visible = false;

        // Remove unnecessary items.

        // Disable the "New Recurring Appointment" menu item.

        // Find the "New Appointment" menu item and rename it.
        SchedulerMenuItem item = e.Menu.GetMenuItemById(SchedulerMenuItemId.NewAppointment);
                if (item != null) {
                    item.Caption = "&New Meeting";
                    item.ImageOptions.SvgImage = DevExpress.Utils.Svg.SvgImage.FromFile("NewItem.svg");

        // Create a menu item for the Scheduler command.
        ISchedulerCommandFactoryService service = schedulerControl1.GetService<ISchedulerCommandFactoryService>();
        SchedulerCommand cmd = service.CreateCommand(SchedulerCommandId.SwitchToGroupByResource);
        SchedulerMenuItemCommandWinAdapter menuItemCommandAdapter =
            new SchedulerMenuItemCommandWinAdapter(cmd);
        DXMenuItem menuItem = (DXMenuItem)menuItemCommandAdapter.CreateMenuItem(DXMenuItemPriority.Normal);
        menuItem.BeginGroup = true;

        // Insert a new item into the Scheduler popup menu and handle its click event.
        e.Menu.Items.Add(new SchedulerMenuItem("Click me!", MyClickHandler));

public void MyClickHandler(object sender, EventArgs e)
    MessageBox.Show("My Menu Item Clicked!");
