The DockManager objects support context menus for dock panels and auto-hide containers. The PopupMenuShowing event fires when an attempt is made to display such a context menu. You can handle this event to customize the menu (add new items or remove the existing ones). Menu items in the menu are represented by the DXMenuItem class objects and its descendants.

void DockManager1_PopupMenuShowing(object sender, PopupMenuShowingEventArgs e) {
    //add a custom item
    DXMenuCheckItem checkItem = new DXMenuCheckItem("My Item");

To prevent the menu from being invoked, set the Allow parameter to false.
