Hi
I have several add-ins running in Excel that I have built. In one of them I use the code
below to get a right click menu. It is used with a specific spreadsheet that has a pivot table
and overrides the usual right click menu.
My problem is that it does this for all spreadsheets. How do I add extra control to let
Excel run its usual right click in other spreadsheets and only run the customized one when
I need it to?


Imports Office = Microsoft.Office.Core
Imports Excel = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel


Public Class ThisAddIn

    Dim cellbar As Office.CommandBar
    WithEvents button As Office.CommandBarButton


    Private Sub ThisAddIn_Startup() Handles Me.Startup

        Try
            'NOTE - this menu is a brnd new one and overrides the existing Excel right click
            cellbar = Me.Application.CommandBars.Add("Testing", Office.MsoBarPosition.msoBarPopup, False, True)
            If button Is Nothing Then
                ' add the button
                button = DirectCast(cellbar.Controls.Add(Office.MsoControlType.msoControlButton, , , , True), Office.CommandBarButton)
                button.Caption = "Add/Edit Tasks"
                button.BeginGroup = True
                button.Tag = "MYRIGHTCLICKMENU"
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

        Try

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

    End Sub
    Private Sub button_Click(ByVal Ctrl As Microsoft.Office.Core.CommandBarButton, ByRef CancelDefault As Boolean) Handles button.Click
        Call oAddEdit_Tasks()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Application_SheetBeforeRightClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Range, ByRef Cancel As Boolean) Handles Application.SheetBeforeRightClick
        Cancel = True
        cellbar.ShowPopup()
    End Sub

You could try testing for the workbook/worksheet name in the SheetBeforeRightClick event to determine wether to cancel the default action or not
