Use the TPopupMenu.Popup event under the TButton.Click event remeber to give the X and Y parameters for the positions (see delphi help for further questions)

Also se the TPopupMenu.AutoPopup property to False

Do you mean really the submenu, or the popup menu?

The popup menu appears when clicking right mouse button, submenu always appears when moving with mouse pointer of menu item.

Anyway here is popup example (see delphi help files):

Popup, AutoPopup Example

This example uses a pop-up menu. When the user presses the mouse button, the pop-up menu appears where the user clicked the mouse:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  PopupMenu1.AutoPopup := False;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormMouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton; Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);

begin
  PopupMenu1.Popup(X, Y);
end;

Zif.
