Adding Popup Menus to Custom Controls

Shipping custom controls with their own set of popup menu items make the controls appear appropriately professional. They add ease of use, functionality and value to the control(s). Here’s how it can be done:

Add an invisible menu item to the control with one or more sub-menu item(s). The sub-menu item(s) should be left visible unless required otherwise. Add PopupMenu method to the usercontrol’s MouseDown event. The code should appear similar to the following sample:

      Private Sub UserControl_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y AsSingle)         On Error GoTo Routine_Error         If Button = vbRightButton Then PopupMenu mnuFile    'mnuFile is the name of the invisibleparent menu item     Routine_Error:         If Err.Number <> 0 Then MsgBox Err.Description, vbInformation, Err.Source     End Sub
