Declare an instance variable
m_category mymenu

In window open script (or treeview create script):
mymenu=create m_category

On rbuttondown will work fine your code:
mymenu.popmenu(PointerX(), PointerY())

A comment:
I usually create menu object level variables, that I set before, f.e.:
treeview tv

On rbuttondown You can write this:
mymenu.popmenu(PointerX(), PointerY())
