Hi,

I am not exactly sure what you are asking - You want the user to create the component in code and then place code on the Context Popup event that will display a message, as well as having the user able to use the event?

If this is so you can override the contextpopup event, adding your code before the user's event handler is called:

{*************}

unit Memo1;

interface

uses
  SysUtils, Classes, Controls, StdCtrls, types, dialogs;

type
  TMemo1 = class(TMemo)
  private
    { Private declarations }
    FOnContextPopup : TContextPopupEvent;
  protected
    { Protected declarations }
 public
    { Public declarations }
  procedure DoContextPopup(MousePos: TPoint; var Handled: Boolean); override;
  published
    { Published declarations }

  end;

procedure Register;

implementation

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Samples', [TMemo1]);
end;

{ TMemo1 }

procedure TMemo1.DoContextPopup(MousePos: TPoint; var Handled: Boolean);
begin
    ShowMessage('Hello');
      if Assigned(FOnContextPopup) then FOnContextPopup(Self, MousePos, Handled);

end;

end.

{**********}
