ONPOPUP

I am using Delphi 1.0 and have found that a second Right mouse click in a different location on the screen will move the POPUP menu that is currently being displayed, but it will not call the ONPOPUP event again !!!  Is this a bug ?
Is there a work around ? My problem is that I want to know the mouse coordinates where the right click was performed.

I don't know if it is a bug...I would doubt it...probably just how OnPopup functions at the Win95 level.  As a workaround, you could just capture MouseDown events for the right button...immediately disable the Autopopup property set to False) and then read the mouse coordinates and then show your popup menu via the Popup method.

There is a small example in the Delphi help file under Popup method.  I think this will work for you.
