I want to show context menu on CRichEditView. So I overloaded OnRButtonDown function (OnContextMenu does not work) and inside the function I am calling
SetCursor(LoadCursor(NULL,IDC_ARROW));
just before calling TrackPopupMenu function. I want to have arrow cursor on the context menu. But it is not showing the arrow cursor. Why is that so? How can I show arrow cursor on context menu.
Why OnContextMenu does not work, I mean it is not getting called on R-click.

You'll have to override 'OnSetCursor()' also, otherwise the system will revert to the default cursor...

To Display context menu in a RichEditView u should override
GetContextMenu()

in the public sction of view header add
virtual HMENU GetContextMenu( WORD seltyp, LPOLEOBJECT lpoleobj, CHARRANGE* lpchrg );
and then in cpp

HMENU CMyRichEditView::GetContextMenu(WORD, LPOLEOBJECT, CHARRANGE* )
{
     CMenu Menu;
     Menu.LoadMenu(IDR_MENU1);

     CMenu *pMenu = Menu.GetSubMenu(0);
     if(pMenu)
     {
          Menu.RemoveMenu(0, MF_BYPOSITION);
          pMenu->TrackPopupMenu(TPM_LEFTALIGN   ,point.x,point.y, AfxGetMainWnd());
          return pMenu->Detach();
     }
     return NULL;
     
}
