Experts,

Any idea why would that happen ? i am creating a context menu and adding a header "Copy" and setting the command equal to ApplicationCommand.Copy and setting the target as well. Still it is always disabled. Wonder why..

I am going crazy..I have set the target as well. I actually have a Grid and have flowdocuments with paragraphs inside in each cell of the grid. Now the target is captured by

 item1.CommandTarget = gridControl.InputHitTest(e.GetPosition(gridControl));

I have other three headers in the context menu..One has a custom command and the other is copy and yet another one is Copy All. Everything else works but this one does not even if i select the text.

Finally what i discover is that if i select the text by left click and drag of mouse and without leaving the left button i right click i see the copy option enabled and i can copy as well. But if i select the text and leave the button then the copy option is disabled....very weird..Any expert reviews please please please ????
