The following code example handles the RowContextMenuStripNeeded event to provide a ContextMenuStrip based on the title of the employee. In this example, there are two shortcut menus, one for managers and one for all other employees. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewRowContextMenuStripNeededEventArgs class overview.

void dataGridView1_RowContextMenuStripNeeded(object sender,
    DataGridViewRowContextMenuStripNeededEventArgs e)
{
    DataGridViewRow dataGridViewRow1 = dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex];

    toolStripMenuItem1.Enabled = true;

    // Show the appropriate ContextMenuStrip based on the employees title. 
    if ((dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Title"].Value.ToString() ==
        "Sales Manager") ||
        (dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Title"].Value.ToString() ==
        "Vice President, Sales"))
    {
        e.ContextMenuStrip = managerMenuStrip;
    }
    else
    {
        e.ContextMenuStrip = employeeMenuStrip;
    }

    contextMenuRowIndex = e.RowIndex;
}
