enable/disable popups in treeview in runtime

Hello!

I use Delphi 3.0.

I have a problem with treeviews.
I have linked a menu to the
treeview that has a option to
delete the selected node.
Thats menu command has [DEL]
as shortkey.
The problem is when the user is
editing the text in a node
and hits [DEL] to delete a letter.
My program now deletes the node
rather than one letter in the node's
text. How can I distinguish these separate
events?
I thought I could use OnEditing to disable
the popupmenu, but in what event can i reset
that event to show the popup?

thanks in advance,
Alexander

hmm forget the hole problem..
someone else had put a
hook for VK_DELETE as well
as having the shortcut.
I was only disabling the shortcut
popup-menu.

no problem at all.
But Mike's answer is correct if that would have been the problem so the score's all yours...

Alex, thank you then for the points. You don't need to donate points for an answer which has no use for you (unless perhaps I would have spent enormous time for answering it :-)).

Well, count on me for your next questions...
