DataGridViewBand.ContextMenuStrip Property

Gets or sets the shortcut menu for the band.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public virtual ContextMenuStrip ContextMenuStrip { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip
The ContextMenuStrip associated with the current DataGridViewBand. The default is null.

The shortcut menu appears when a user clicks the right mouse button in the band's display area. The display area is a DataGridViewColumn or DataGridViewRow in a DataGridView.

The following code example uses the ContextMenuStrip property of a DataGridViewColumn to add functionality for changing a cell's background color. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewColumn class.

ToolStripMenuItem toolStripItem1 = new ToolStripMenuItem();

private void AddContextMenu()
{
    toolStripItem1.Text = "Redden";
    toolStripItem1.Click += new EventHandler(toolStripItem1_Click);
    ContextMenuStrip strip = new ContextMenuStrip();
    foreach (DataGridViewColumn column in dataGridView.Columns)
    {

        column.ContextMenuStrip = strip;
        column.ContextMenuStrip.Items.Add(toolStripItem1);
    }
}

private DataGridViewCellEventArgs mouseLocation;

// Change the cell's color. 
private void toolStripItem1_Click(object sender, EventArgs args)
{
    dataGridView.Rows[mouseLocation.RowIndex]
        .Cells[mouseLocation.ColumnIndex].Style.BackColor
        = Color.Red;
}

// Deal with hovering over a cell. 
private void dataGridView_CellMouseEnter(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs location)
{
    mouseLocation = location;
}
