There is no way to generate the context menu on the fly (at least for now).

You have two options:

  • Create several context menus that cover the possible cases. You can assign the context menu for each event separately using BeforeEventRender event handler (see also DayPilot Calendar: Context Menu).
  • You can use DayPilot Bubble control instead of the menu. The bubble content (HTML) is generated on the fly. You can use anything that HTML supports (images, tables, hyperlinks). The bubble can be activated upon event click, right-click, hover, etc.

Can I create runtime Menu and Menuitems ? Like Following:

 I am writing a method called DynamicMenu conatains following code and it will execute from getData method of DayPilotMonth.The following code give me error like :   The control collection cannot be modified during DataBind, Init, Load,  PreRender or Unload phases  Is there any event in which I can create Dynamic Menu n MenuItems Like this..


public void DynamicMenu(eventID,menuText,MenuCommandText)


// Event ID is increment counter for different menuId.

DayPilotMenu menuList = new DayPilotMenu();
menuList.ID = "DayPilotMenu_" + eventId;

DayPilot.Web.Ui.MenuItem menuItem = new DayPilot.Web.Ui.MenuItem();
menuItem.Text = menuText;
menuItem.Command = menuCommandText;
menuItem.Action = DayPilot.Web.Ui.MenuItemAction.PostBack;
