ContextMenustrip Double Click Handler

I have a dynamically created ContextMenuStrip  that I am creating click handlers for        

 AddHandler reportsContextMenuStrip.ItemClicked, AddressOf cMenu_Click  << Works Fine

I am trying to create either a double click or preferable  a right mouse click (opposite Mouse Click)
 AddHandler reportsContextMenuStrip.MouseDoubleClick, AddressOf cMenuDouble_Click  <<-- Does not seem to fire

Please any help is appreciated

You cannot react to most events on a ContextMenuStrip, because the ContextMenuStrip itself is never visible.

What is visible to the user are the ToolStripMenuItem controls that the ContextMenuStrip contains. And the ToolStripMenuItem does not have a MouseDoubleClick, it has a only a DoubleClick.

Thank you what I ended up doing was the mouse event with right and left then save the results to a global variable and work it form there

WPF is the best answer
