To make a popup menu, use PopupMenu mnuName
where mnuName is a menu name you want to bring up
You can put that in _MouseDown even if you want to simulate Win95 behavior

ok but it says object required....I thought this was something built in?!  Am I suppost to make another form to act as the menu?  If so what the hell is the purpose of popupmenu when all ya need is formx.visible = true and coordinates!  So please be a little more specific and show some code.

The object is the form on which you display the popupmenu, like when the user right clicks on Form1, you put Form1.PopupMenu mnuMyMenu, X, Y
