I am using a technique for right click.  Make the menu invisible, the use popupmenu to make the menu pop up on a right click.  The problem is this only works on the form, it does not work on any control.  I need to select from the list box.  (for example left click will take the item and put it in another list box, right click needs to perform a different function)

When it gets down to it, the only thing i need is code to make the right click work over a control.


thanks

Use this general function in one mudule
Public Sub OpenContextMenu(FormName As Form, MenuName As Menu)

  Call SendMessage(FormName.hwnd, WM_RBUTTONDOWN, 0, 0&)
  'Show my context menu
  FormName.PopupMenu MenuName
   
End Sub

 and this code in the MouseDown event of your object

If Button = vbRightButton Then
    PopupMenu menu_name
End If
