My application based on CHTMLView class, and I need to create my own context menu instead of default context menu for this view. I am trying to implement it in WM_CONTEXTMENU handler, but application does not reach this point.

You need to implement the IDocHostUIHandler interface. See

This example explains the way to disable default menu. But I don't understand how to implement my own menu.

You can use CMenu::TrackPopupMenu to show your menu.

Is it possible to create my own context menu directly in CHTMLView, without implementation IDocHostUIHandler ?

No, you have to implement IDocHostUIHandler. CHTMLView uses the Web Browser control.

If current implementation allows, it is possible to override default menu in CHTMLView-based application using PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg) :

if ( pMsg->message == WM_RBUTTONUP )
{
   POINT pt = pMsg->pt;
   CWnd::ScreenToClient(&pt);
   ShowMyContextMenu(pt);
   return true;
}
