Hey usrsampath,

Here's a quick of creating a popup menu.

First, create the menu from menu editor.  Set the main branch of your menu for visible to false.

From your function or whatever you're using to call the popup menu. So let say you want to use the right mouse click, you'll do something like this:

Private Sub lvwDB_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

   If Button = vbRightButton Then 'if right button is press
          Me.PopupMenu "youmainbranchname"
   End If
End Sub

Hope it helps.

Here is a basic example of adding to a menu:

mnuFile is defined with an index to add new items to it.

for i = 1 to 10
  Load mnuFile(i)
  mnuFile(i).Caption = Cstr(i)
next i

Hope this helps.
