Type: Feature Request
Add Hide and/or HideAsync method to ContextMenu

When using Template there's no way to trigger a close of the ContextMenu when clicking inside the template. 



Marked as duplicated, because the feature will be implemented in ContextMenu and Menu component at once. For better tracking, we will keep the item logged for the Menu component.

Sample workaround:

@inject IJSRuntime _js

<script suppress-error="BL9992">
    function hideMenu(menuClass) {
        setTimeout(function () {
            var menuParent = document.querySelector("." + menuClass);
            if (menuParent) {
                menuParent.dispatchEvent(new KeyboardEvent('keydown', { 'key': 'Escape' }));
        }, 50);

<div class="menuTarget">
    right click this target

    .menuTarget {
        width: 100px;
        background: yellow;
        margin: 50px;

<TelerikContextMenu Data="@MenuItems" @ref="@TheContextMenu" Selector=".menuTarget" Class="@menuClass">

        <TelerikButton OnClick="@HideMenu">Hide Menu</TelerikButton>


@code {
    string menuClass = "my-context-menu";
    async Task HideMenu()
        await _js.InvokeVoidAsync("hideMenu", menuClass);

    // sample data binding

    public List<ContextMenuItem> MenuItems { get; set; }
    TelerikContextMenu<ContextMenuItem> TheContextMenu { get; set; }
    bool UseSpecialMenu { get; set; }

    async Task ShowContextMenu(MouseEventArgs e)
        await TheContextMenu.ShowAsync(e.ClientX, e.ClientY);

    // generate sample data for the listview and the menu
    protected override void OnInitialized()
        MenuItems = new List<ContextMenuItem>()
        new ContextMenuItem
            Text = "More Info",
            Metadata = "info"
        new ContextMenuItem
            Text = "Special Command",
            Metadata = "special"


    public class ContextMenuItem
        public string Text { get; set; }
        public string Metadata { get; set; }
