RichEditControl.PopupMenuShowing Event

Occurs before a popup menu is created for the control's document every time a context menu is being invoked.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.RichEdit
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.RichEdit.v19.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Expanded Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type PopupMenuShowingEventArgs containing data related to this event.

The following PopupMenuShowingEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.
Property Description
Customizations Provides access to a collection of customizations of the popup menu.
Menu Gets or sets the popup menu displayed in the RichEditControl.
MenuType Gets a visual element for which the popup menu is invoked.

Expanded Remarks

Handle the PopupMenuShowing event to modify items in the context menu. The current context menu can be accessed via the PopupMenuShowingEventArgs.Menu property.

Expanded Example

This example demonstrates how to customize the RichEditControl's context menu - remove the existing menu items and add new items.

Handle the PopupMenuShowing event. Use the PopupMenuShowingEventArgs.MenuType property to determine the visual element for which the popup menu is invoked.

To remove a menu item, create the RemoveRichEditCommandAction object, set its ID to the ID of the command to remove and add that object to the PopupMenuShowingEventArgs.Customizations collection.

To add a new menu item, create a new BarButtonItem and add it to the PopupMenuShowingEventArgs.Customizations collection.
