Create a popup menu

I have a form within a class.  I want to create a popup menu for this form.  I don't want the menu to be dependent on the project form.  I want it contained within the class.

It seems that the menu is not a VB control type.

I have a ListView with a CommandButton over it.  I want a popup menu to appear when someone right-clicks on the CommandButton.

The problem is that I can't find a way to create a menu from within my class.  Since the only way to use the PopupMenu method is to have a menu associated with a form it is difficult to find a way around this.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Rich

You can create your own menu using another form within the same class and use the Show/Hide methods inside the command buttons Mouse down/up event.

I know, but I was hoping instead that there was a way to create a popupMenu from the form in my class instead of creating a form.

I could also do it with a label.  

I think the answer is no.

Thanks anyway.

I am using this in my VB Project, and it's great.

Hi!

I don't know if this would be applicable to your question, but, just in case this is what you're actually trying to achieve...

I you want to popup the menu (which is called MyMenu) from Form1 IN Form2, in form2, simply add this code:

PopupMenu Form1.MyMenu

That's it!

PS Ignore me if this is inapplicable
