Hi,
I want to use context menu in TreeView control. I implemented a event method for OnMouseClick and then checking if the button was right clicked. if the button is right mouse button i am displaying a message box. This is done just for tesing.
This works fine if i have some nodes in tree view control and right click on some node. But if there are no nodes in the tree view and if i do a right click, the event is not being handled!!! Can you please tell me how to solve this issue.
I am Implementing the tree view so that if i right click on the tree view, i should get a context menu. from the context menu, i should be able to add, remove, rename the nodes and sub-nodes. Since currently no nodes are present the event is not at all handled and i am unable to display the context menu.
Please help me solving this issue.

Thanks

Hi yamurthy,

If the treeview is empty with absolutely no treenodes, then I think this should be the way to go:
1) Create a contextMenuStrip
2) From the treeview's property grid set the ContextMenuStrip property to the contextMenuStrip that you have just created.

Now when ever you click on the treeview the context menu will appear.

Initially i did check for contextMenustrip in the treeview properties. but did not add the strip from the tool box!!!. was just looking in the properties and was wondering that it was just (none) and nothing else. :)
Thanks a lot for the answer
