Hello,

We are developing an ArcMap Extension in which we are removing few built-in tools and commands using interface ICustomizationFilter and ICommandItem::delete. I have been successful for most of them but not for removing the Toolbar Context Menu which appears after right clicking grey toolbar area in the ArcMap. Basically, we do not want our users to add/remove toolbars using this context menu, so want to lock the customization.

So, I am really stuck on this. I have tried a lot but no success so far. The UID which I have been using for this Toolbar Context menu "{2AE639DD-1C2F-11D2-94B6-080009EEBECB}".

So, any help on this problem will be appreciated. The screen shot for this context menu is attached for more clarity.

Thanks,
S.

Hi Sanjay,

This is a know issue logged as NIM092574 and it's marked as fixed in v10.2.1:
"In ArcGIS 10.0 and ArcGIS 10.1, the ???esriCustomizationEvent.esriCEInvokeCommand??? event does not get fired when a toolbar is requested; this worked in ArcGIS 9.3.1."

Regards,
David

Hello,

I have tested this issue in 10.2.1 also and found that it is not fixed.The �??esriCustomizationEvent.esriCEInvokeCommand�?? event does not get fired when a toolbar is requested by right clicking on the grey area on the ArcMap.

Any help on this is appreciated.

Thanks.
