Context menu when user right-clicks on row of datagridview

I would like to to know how to go about creating a context menu for a datagridview when the user right-clicks on a row.

I have dragged a ContextMenuStrip from the toolbox and dropped it onto my datagridview and have added a few items.

When I run my application a context menu doesn't appear when I right-click on a populated datagridview row.

Do I need to utilize a datagridview event to make it work?

What do I need to know?

Thanks

Steve

you need to set the ContextMenu property of the DataGridView to your created ContextMenuStrip.

you can do it in the Designer, no need to do it by code.

Or

        Dim toolTip As ToolTip = New System.Windows.Forms.ToolTip()
        toolTip.SetToolTip([Your datagridview], "This is the tooltip text")
        toolTip.Active = True

This way you can change the text for individual columns .. on the CellMouseEnter event.

hi kinger, the datagridview columns all have a tooltip property so you wouldnt need to handle it on any event

Thanks newyuppie for getting me on the right track. Much simpler than I was beginning to imagine.

Also thanks to Kinger247 for your input also.
