Hi,

You could use the MouseUp Event

MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

And test if Button = acRightButton '2

The right click is generally reserved for shortcut menus.

You might consider the double click event, or even add a button to the right of that control.

But how do I use it? Like that?:

Dim Btn As Integer, _
        Shift As Integer, _
        X As Single, _
        Y As Single
       

    mouse = Fld_F41a_EmpreendedorNUIT.OnMouseUp(Button, Shift, X, Y)
   
    If Buttin = acRightButton Then
        MsgBox "A"
    Else
        MsgBox = "B"
    End If

Just a comment here...
Opening a form on a right click creates non-standard functionality.
Can we ask what is the need for doing this?

Sure!

Sorry to be so long replying. Actually it is not such a non-standard functionality. When we right-click, what we want is the system to show up some contextual information on the object that we right-click. This is why we use it to obtain specific contextual menus. My case is similar, although no a menu. It is a set of information (contextual) to the field I am selecting.

Anyway... I am still without an answer and already used the click and double-click.... The option to show the information on a form is simply because it is the simplest manner in ms/access...

You might want to look into creating, or augmenting the right click menu (Form View Control) associated with the textbox, and add an option to that menu, or create your own right click menu for that control.

Check out my series of articles on right click (shortcut) menus, here.

If "give up" means you give up, then why did you accept my answer?
