TEdit default Popup Menu

If a PopupMenu is not specified for an Edit control. A default PopupMenu is displayed. I would like to find out the whereabouts of this menu as I am looking to copy the functionality in terms of disabling options depending on whether text is selected or the clipboard is empty into the Main Menu.

Hi,
I haven't found the menu and don't think it exists other than when it's visible. But to copy the functionality, do this:

&Undo
-----
Cu&t
&Copy
&Paste
&Delete
-----
Select &All

Undo     = Boolean( SendMessage( Edit.Handle, EM_CANUNDO, 0, 0 ) );
Copy/Cut/Delete = Edit.SelLength > 0;
Paste = Clipboard.HasFormat( CF_TEXT ); // uses clipbrd
SelectAll => SendMessage( Edit.Handle, EM_SETSEL, 0, -1 );

Thats it.
