Problems with Popup Menus

If you use popup menus in your applications, you should be aware of a bug present in VB4 16/32 and VB5. If you have two forms and the first one shows the second form modally from within a popup menu, the second form can't show any popup menu. To fix this bug, use a timer on the first form. Instead of showing the second form from within the popup menu's Click event, activate the timer so it shows the second modal form after some milliseconds. For more information on this bug and its workaround, see article Q167839 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
