TrackPopupMenu()

Hi,

I have used the TrackPopupMenu API call to show a popupmenu when someone right-clicks an icon I have placed in the taskbar. The code to show the popupmenu goes like this:

UINT CPopupMenu::Track(HWND hWnd, int x, int y) {

     UINT nID = TrackPopupMenu(
          m_hPopup,
          (TPM_CENTERALIGN | TPM_BOTTOMALIGN | TPM_NONOTIFY | TPM_RETURNCMD ),
          x, y, 0, *g_pMainWindow, NULL
     );

     if (nID==ID_POPUP_AUTOACCEPT) {
          MENUITEMINFO mii = { sizeof(MENUITEMINFO) };
          mii.fMask =     MIIM_STATE;
          GetMenuItemInfo(m_hPopup, nID, FALSE, &mii);


          if (mii.fState & MFS_CHECKED) {
               mii.fState &= ~MFS_CHECKED;
               mii.fState |= MFS_UNCHECKED;
               m_autoaccept = FALSE;
          }

          else {
               mii.fState &= ~MFS_UNCHECKED;
               mii.fState |= MFS_CHECKED;
               m_autoaccept = TRUE;
          }

          SetMenuItemInfo(m_hPopup, nID, FALSE, &mii);
     }
     return nID;
}


So the function CPopupMenu::Track will show the popupmenu, and take care of tick marks and suchs. My only problem is this:

Using this method, makes the popupmenu stay on the screen, and disappear partly behind the taskbar when clicking on the taskbar. The popupmenu will not go away until I have chosen an item on the menu. This behaviour is different than other programs in the taskbar, where the popupmenu disappears when clicking outside it.

How can I achieve this?
