when I right click on my tray icon, a popup menu appears.
The problem is that when I click outside the menu, the menu is not killed.

How can I make the menu to be killed when I click outiside the menu ?

Here's the code :

LRESULT CWindowHandlePickerDlg::OnNotifyTaskBarIcon(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
 {
  UINT uID       = (UINT)wParam;
  UINT uMouseMsg = (UINT)lParam;

  if (uID != ID_TRAYICON) return 0L;

  switch(uMouseMsg)
   {
    case WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK :
                            OnTrayMenu_ShowInterface();
                            break;

    case WM_RBUTTONDOWN :
                          {
                           CMenu cTaskBarDummyMenu;

                           if (!cTaskBarDummyMenu.LoadMenu(IDM_TASKBARICON)) return 0L;

                           CMenu *pcTaskBarMenu = cTaskBarDummyMenu.GetSubMenu(0);

                           CPoint point;
                           
                           GetCursorPos(&point);

                           if (pcTaskBarMenu) pcTaskBarMenu->TrackPopupMenu(TPM_LEFTALIGN | TPM_LEFTBUTTON, point.x, point.y, this);

                           cTaskBarDummyMenu.DestroyMenu();
                          }
                          break;
   }

  return 0L;
 }

There is a trick. Berof calling TrackPopupMenu you have to call SetForegroundWindow() function and after TrackPopupMenu you have to call PostMessage(, NULL,,) and  specify handle of you window in that function.
