The MenuItemClick event fires when selecting a specific item within a Pivot Grid Control’s menus. It enables you to cancel the default actions performed when a particular item is clicked, and instead, implement your own handling. The clicked item is represented by the event’s PivotGridMenuItemClickEventArgsBase.Item parameter.

You can identify the clicked item using the Item.Tag property. Tags of standard menu items are listed by static fields of the PivotContextMenuIds abstract class. Use values of these fields to identify a particular menu item. For the ‘Sort … by This Column/Row’ items displayed in column/row header context menus and used to apply Sorting by Summary, the DXMenuItem.Tag property stores a PivotGridFieldPair object that refers to the current data and column/row fields.

The MenuItemClick event is not raised when menu items created manually are clicked. Custom items can be added to menus via the PivotGridControl.PopupMenuShowing event handler.
