How to copy a menu in IDE

I have an old form that has a TPopupMenu on it.
I have created a new form to which I need to copy the TPopupMenu.

I selected the TPopupMenu on the old form, Pressed Ctrl-C clicked on the new form and pressed Ctrl-V. The TPopupMenu appeared in the new form - ok so far.

Now here's the problem:

No matter how I try to assign methods in the new form to the OnClick event of the TPopupMenu's menu items I cannot get the events to actually fire. I.e. the code in the methods attached to the events is never executed.

If I add a new menu item then I can configrre the OnClicked event for that new item no problem. If I delete an existing menu item and re-add it I can configure the OnClicked event no problem - I just cannot configure the OnClicked event for menuitems that were copied along with the TPopupMenu.

I have compared the .dfm files for both the new and old forms and I can't see any difference in the definitions for the TPopupMenu or the menu items.

What have I done wrong - should I be able to copy TPopupMenus in this manner?

Regards
Paul

I have just tried as you said, it's all ok under my delphi 5.0 update pack 1. What is your delphi version ? If you can share your code is better.

I tried a few small example programs and like you say, they seem to work OK.

I guess it must be something wierd I am doing in my application. I will try to hunt it down and post a more detailed/accurate description of what/why it doesn't seem to work.

I can't reproduce the problem now.
You're right it seems to work fine.
