For built in controls, you would have to use code to do this

Private Sub listView1_MouseClick(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs)
      If e.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
            If listView1.FocusedItem.Bounds.Contains(e.Location) = True Then
                  contextMenuStrip1.Show(Cursor.Position)
            End If
      End If
End Sub


Are you using those 3rd party controls?

When you show the contextmenu in MouseClick event, save the X and Y location. Then use HitTest method of listview to find the item where mouse was clicked
