List control - notification of a right click

I have a list control with several items in it and I'm able to react if the user doubleclicks an icon by responding to the WM_NOTIFY message and checking for LVN_ITEMACTIVATE in the parameter.
I would like to be able to respond to right click events too however, similar to how the explorer displays a menu if you right click a file. In the msdn library or in the windows headers I haven't found a parameter for that though.

thanks for any help

There is no special message for that, because 'WM_RBUTTONDOWN' is the one you need to respond to. If you receive that message, display a context menu for the active item(s) using 'TrackPopupMenu()'
