Do you mean to show a popup menu when you right click on some object ? make a menu with Menu BUilder Set the Parent visible = False . FOr example this uses Command Button when you press right mouse on it it will show a popup menu


Private Sub Command1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
If Button = vbRightButton Then
    Form1.PopupMenu mnuVal
End If
End Sub

This is some clarification what i meant.

Files
....Open
....Close
....Exit

Files has the name of mnuFiles its caption is Files. Set it visible to False. Leave the others as they are. Then in the whatever object Mouse_Down Event. You can use this code. In this example i used Command Button
Private Sub Command1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
If Button = vbRightButton Then
    Form1.PopupMenu mnuFiles
End If
End Sub
