    In my spread i am getting a Context Menu popup when i make the cell editable and then right click on it. Also in my form there are some other controls as well, i want the context menu to be disabled only for the spread and for no other control.

    When i say disabled.. i mean on right clicking on a cell , i want no action to be performed.No Popup should come up. What do i do to make this working the way i want.

    Is there any property which i can set to make these disable?

    Try using the FpSpread1_CellClick event:

    If e.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
    e.Cancel = True
    End If

    This will cancel any right-clicking on the Spread control. Does this work for you?

    That is not working, I am making the cell editable by double clicking on that cell , then if a right click on it the pop up still comes up.

    To get the ContextMenu off on the editor in the cell, you need to get that control and set the AutoMenu property to False.

      <SPAN class=kwd>Private Sub</SPAN> FpSpread1_EditModeOn(<SPAN class=kwd>ByVal</SPAN> sender <SPAN class=kwd>As Object</SPAN>, <SPAN class=kwd>ByVal</SPAN> e <SPAN class=kwd>As</SPAN> System.EventArgs) <SPAN class=kwd>Handles</SPAN> FpSpread1.EditModeOn
    <SPAN class=kwd>Dim</SPAN> c <SPAN class=kwd>As</SPAN> FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.GeneralEditor
    c = FpSpread1.EditingControl
    c.AutoMenu = <SPAN class=kwd>False
    End Sub</SPAN>
