Popup menu added to context menu (shell extension)

I am writing a context menu shell extension.  How is it possible to have the item added to the context menu be a popup menu?  It would seem that calling InsertMenu using MF_POPUP does nothing and yet does not return 0.  I'm quite sure I've seen context menu shell extensions do this.

mrgentry,

the following code is Delphi code. But I think you'll get how it works...

function TContextMenu.QueryContextMenu(Menu: HMENU; indexMenu,idCmdFirst,idCmdLast,uFlags: UINT) : HResult;
var c1       : cardinal;
    keyState : TKeyboardState;
    cc,ci    : cardinal;
begin
  result:=0;
  if (uFlags and CMF_VERBSONLY=0) and (uFlags and CMF_EXPLORE=0) and (uFlags and $F<>0) then
    exit;
  cc:=idCmdFirst; ci:=indexMenu;
  c1:=CreatePopupMenu;
  AppendMenu(c1, MF_STRING,    cc, 'Kontextmenü bearbeiten'); inc(cc);
  AppendMenu(c1, MF_SEPARATOR, 0,  nil                     );
  AppendMenu(c1, MF_STRING,    cc, 'Info'                  ); inc(cc);
  AppendMenu(c1, MF_STRING,    cc, 'Einstellungen'         ); inc(cc);
  InsertMenu(Menu, ci, MF_STRING or MF_POPUP or MF_BYPOSITION, c1, 'popup menu'); inc(ci);
  result:=ci-indexMenu;
end;

Regards, Madshi.
