Hi Folks,

How do I position a context menu above the notify icon when I right click it?

This is what I have so far:   Not sure what to replace the xxx with?  (This is code i'm using elsewhere in the application)

Private Sub NotifyIcon1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles NotifyIcon1.MouseDown
    ContextMenu2.Show(xxx, New Point(e.X, e.Y))
End Sub

Thanks,
Paul

It looks like you want to popup the menu no matter what mouse button is clicked on the icon.

To get it to popup when the Right mouse is clicked (which is the normal method for context menus), then simply set the contextmenu propert of the trayicon, eg:

        Me.NotifyIcon1.ContextMenu = Me.ContextMenu2

This can be done in the designer (properties for the NotifyIcon)

At least this might get you going for the time being.
