Not sure exactly what you mean, but you can convert an object to a contextmenustrip like so...

Dim cms As System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip = CType(MyUserControl, System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip)

Open in new window

My user control name is UserControlCMS1 and on using above line i.e.

Dim cms As System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip = CType(UserControlCMS1, System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip)

I'm getting an error :

" Value of type UserControlCMS can not be converted to 'System.Windows.ContextMenuStrip' "

A UserControl is not a ContextMenuStrip, and therefore it cannot be cast as so.  This makes no sense...unless you give us more details to explain otherwise.

That would be like trying to cast an Apple to an Orange.  They're both fruit, but it's just not going to work!
