Using vb.net and winform. I have controls that have a ContextmenuStrip attacheed. Sometime these control are in a ReadOnly=True state to prevent user making changes. But I still want this Menustrip to appear chen I right click on the control. Is there any way of doing this?

The ContextMenuStrip still appears for me with ReadOnly set to True (tested with a TextBo).  You must have some other property set that is preventing it from appearing?...

What controls are you using?

Yes, yes. Sorry. I'm dealing with Combox which does not have ReadOnly so I'm using Enabled.
Is there away to use ReadOnly with ComboBox and CheckBoxes or to allow it to access the contextmenuStrip even when Enabled=False?
