NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.VerticalGrid


public event PopupMenuShowingEventHandler RowBrickMenuShowing

Event Data

The RowBrickMenuShowing event's data class is PopupMenuShowingEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Menu Gets or sets the control’s popup menu that will be shown.
Row Gets the row where the popup menu will be displayed.


In the Office view (see PropertyGridControl.ActiveViewType), you can display brick buttons against properties by setting the PropertyGridControl.OptionsView.ShowRowBrick property to True (see PGridOptionsView.ShowRowBrick).


The RowBrickMenuShowing event allows you to populate the menu.

using DevExpress.Utils.Menu;

propertyGridControl1.RowBrickMenuShowing += propertyGridControl1_RowBrickMenuShowing;
private void propertyGridControl1_RowBrickMenuShowing(object sender, DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Events.PopupMenuShowingEventArgs e) {
    if (e.Row.Properties.FieldName == "Appearance.BackColor")
DXMenuItem createDataBindingItem;
protected DXMenuItem CreateDataBindingItem {
    get {
        if (createDataBindingItem == null) {
            DXMenuItem item = new DXMenuItem("Create Data Binding...");
            item.Click += (s, ee) => MessageBox.Show("'Create Data Binding...' is clicked.");
            createDataBindingItem = item;
        return createDataBindingItem;


Items added using this event are not shown when the menu is invoked with a right-click on a property (see PGridOptionsView.ShowRowBrick).

You can also customize the brick buttons by handling the PropertyGridControl.CustomDrawRowBrick event.
