Left Click Popup Menu

I want to attach a popup menu to the LEFT click of a button.  This would seem to be a fairly straightforward thing, but since the popupmenu property of the button only attaches to RIGHT clicks, and calling the popup method of the menu requires X and Y in absolute screen coordinates (which you have to calculate by taking form position, button position, mouse position, etc, and then taking into accound border widths, scrollbars, etc, this is just too complicated!

can anyone suggest a SIMPLE way of doing this? (ie LEFT click on the button to trigger the popup)

Thanks

Ben

Ben,

Getting the screen coordinates is not as hard as you think. Look up ScreenToClient and ClientToScreen - one easy call gives you the coords you needs to pass to the popup call.

Hope this helps,

Raymond.
