Hi,
I need to design a context menu exactly like the table datasheet shortcut menu in MS Access. When right-clicking on a datagrid column I would like the context menu to show some menu items including a menuitem as follows: Filter for: _________ (the line here should actually be s a textbox where the user types a filter criteria.
I already know how to add icons to a menuitem with the OwnerDreaw, but I did not figure out how to add a textbox to the item.
Thanks,
Sima

Not sure if System.Windows.Forms.DrawItemEventArgs has some method to do what you want. However you can go for a windows Form disguised as a Context Menu there you can have all the options you want....
