    if (e.MouseButton == MouseButtons.Right || e.Element.Style == ElementStyle.Group) {
        popupMenu1.ShowPopup(Control.MousePosition);
        e.Handled = true;
    }

private void accordionControl1_ElementClick(object sender, DevExpress.XtraBars.Navigation.ElementClickEventArgs e) {
    AccordionControl accordionControl = sender as AccordionControl;
    if (e.MouseButton == MouseButtons.Left && accordionControl.IsPopupFormShown) {

        e.Handled = true;
    }
