Context Menu is not displaying for disable Textbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      I am creating my custom ContextMenu and placing on a TextBox.

    If TextBox is enable/IsReadOnly= false then ContextMenu is displaying(on right click ) But if i make TextBox disable/IsReadOnly=True then context menu is not displaying.

    Is there any settings so that contextmenu should display for selected disable textbox?

  • Not exactly, if you had some content in the textbox and it's selected I think you can get it to work.


    I think an alternative might be a custom control yourtextbox which overrides the standard right click behaviour.

  • Disabling any control disables the context menu.  It the same for Tooltip.

    Guess the question is : What are you trying to accomplish by making the control both disabled and readonly.  Seems to me that if the textbox is readonly then disabled is pretty much redundant.
