But a popup menu isn't modal. It doesn't restrict mouse input to within itself.

Do you mean you want your application to trap mouse messages   in windows other than the popup, while it is displayed? I don't see how this is possible because the popup kills itself as soon as it loses the focus?

Can you explain why you need this more fully?

Why dont you just use a panel to make a FAKE popupmenu.
This way you will still have total control over mouse inputs.
Just change the panels visible property to enable / disable
menu.
