Control.ContextMenuStrip Property

Gets or sets the ContextMenuStrip associated with this control.

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 for this control, or null if there is no ContextMenuStrip. The default is null.

If a ContextMenu has also been assigned to the control, the ContextMenu takes precedence over the ContextMenuStrip.

The following code example demonstrates how to add three ToolStripMenuItem objects to a ContextMenuStrip. In addition it demonstrates setting the ContextMenuStrip property of the form.

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Form1 : Form
{
    private ContextMenuStrip contextMenuStrip1;
    private ToolStripMenuItem toolStripMenuItem1;
    private ToolStripMenuItem toolStripMenuItem2;
    private ToolStripMenuItem toolStripMenuItem3;
    private IContainer components;

    public Form1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
    }

    static void Main()
    {
        Application.EnableVisualStyles();
        Application.SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(false);
        Application.Run(new Form1());
    }

    private void InitializeComponent()
    {
        this.components = new System.ComponentModel.Container();
        this.contextMenuStrip1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip(this.components);
        this.toolStripMenuItem1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem();
        this.toolStripMenuItem2 = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem();
        this.toolStripMenuItem3 = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem();
        this.contextMenuStrip1.SuspendLayout();
        this.SuspendLayout();
        //

        this.contextMenuStrip1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(180, 70);
        //  
        // toolStripMenuItem1 
        //  
        this.toolStripMenuItem1.Name = "toolStripMenuItem1";
        this.toolStripMenuItem1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(179, 22);
        this.toolStripMenuItem1.Text = "toolStripMenuItem1";

        //  
        // toolStripMenuItem3 
        //  
        this.toolStripMenuItem3.Name = "toolStripMenuItem3";
        this.toolStripMenuItem3.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(179, 22);
        this.toolStripMenuItem3.Text = "toolStripMenuItem3";
        //  
        // Form1 
        //  
        this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 273);
        this.ContextMenuStrip = this.contextMenuStrip1;
