VB6: Dismiss system tray icon right-click menu

I made a program that has a right-click menu on a system tray icon.  The problem is, after right-clicking, the only way to dismiss the menu is to select an option or click on the icon again.  How can I make the right-click menu go away when the user clicks outside the menu?

Call SetForegroundWindow before you call popupmenu

ie

private Declare Function SetForegroundWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long


SetForegroundWindow Me.hwnd
PopupMenu mnuStat, , , , Yourmenu
