1 min read


The text font in the context menu can be changed by getting the CommandBar using GetCommandBarManager method and get hold of DockBarContextMenu. Now the ParentBarItem's BeforePopup event has to handled to change the text font of Popup menu items. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:


this.mainFrameBarManager1.GetCommandBarManager().DockBarContextMenu.ParentBarItem.BeforePopup+=new CancelEventHandler(ParentBarItem_BeforePopup);
private void ParentBarItem_BeforePopup(object sender, CancelEventArgs e)
   foreach(BarItem baritem in this.mainFrameBarManager1.GetCommandBarManager().DockBarContextMenu.ParentBarItem.Items)
      baritem.CustomTextFont=new Font("Times New Roman",8.25F);


AddHandler mainFrameBarManager1.GetCommandBarManager().DockBarContextMenu.ParentBarItem.BeforePopup, AddressOf ParentBarItem_BeforePopup
Private Sub ParentBarItem_BeforePopup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CancelEventArgs)
    For Each baritem As BarItem In Me.mainFrameBarManager1.GetCommandBarManager().DockBarContextMenu.ParentBarItem.Items
        baritem.CustomTextFont = New Font("Times New Roman",8.25F)
    Next baritem
End Sub
