Disable MDI Parent's System Context Menu Right & Left Click Menu Pop-up. How?
I am trying to do this without much luck, but managed to get rid-of the Min/Max buttons via an MS example at the link below.
However, when a user right clicks on-the MDI parent's Caption bar, a popup up menu appears - Woud like to prevent that.
Secondly, if a user "LEFT" Click on the top Left corner of the same Caption bar (where the Icon appears); it pops the same Pop-Up Menu - Like to stop that.
Thirdly, If a user double clicks on the same menu bar, form flickers, bobs down & up (Min & back to Max state), looks back at you and say's "fooled Ya!", as if it was possessed by some sort of strange evil code. Now I Would really, really, like to make it stop doing that.
Basically, like to prevent any mouse action on MDI Parent's Title Bar. Searched for couple of hours in vain (pain), but nothing turned up for what I am looking for. I can stop the right click on the form it-self by detecting mouse down button, but that’s not preventing the click event in MDI parent's title/caption bar.
Anyone know how or what needs to be done to get this to work? Any and all help, suggestions, etc. will be greatly appreciated!

Right Click Context Menu
I am currently coding a filemanager in vb6 and i am needing a way (or better yet a ready to go module) that will allow me to add explorer's right click menu to the files displayed. I know i will need the extended type library for ishellfolder and mallocs, but i am quite confused on how to go about doing this(edit: coding, not using extended type libraries) in vb, any help will be much appreciated.
Right-click Context Menu Customization
What is the name of the right-click context menu in Excel (i.e., right-click on the spreadsheet)? I would like to add my own menu entries (or one cascading menu) to this menu. If this is possible, does a VBA routine run from this menu receive (or have access to) information about the related cell range (i.e., the one that was right-clicked on)?

Right Click Context Menu Issue
I have a project that displays several data items within a frame, and in a number of text boxes within that frame.
I have it set up to respond to left and right mouse clicks anywhere within the frame, and need it to respond identically no matter where within the frame and no matter what control the mouse is over when clicked. ( ie want only one mouse click function for the entire area ).
The left click works fine and the right click works fine unless over a text box, where I get the standard context menu popup.
In forums, I find the 'best' approach of subclassing the text boxes to kill the menu. I have tried placing a transparent label over the entire area and setting its zorder to insure that it is on top. Why does the top label control not catch the mouse click, rather than pass it thru to a text box below??

How To Detect Item Chosen In A Right Click Context Menu?
When you right click on a textbox, you get the cut,copy,paste, and delete context menu. How can I detect which of these choices was selected?
I need to create a text validation on what action was taken, but validation only happens when you move off the textbox. So if a user should close the app or refresh the app, I can detect what action was taken and validate it.

Right-click Context Menu To Forward Email To A Specific Address In Outlook 2000...
I'm running Outlook 2000, and I wanted to be able to right-click on any email I've received (in any of various folders) and select a menu item that says 'Forward', and it will be forwarded to an email address that I'll specify in the VBA code.
I saw on this forum (at http://www.vbcity.com/forums/topic.asp?tid=9974&highlight=Outlook ) some VBA code that allows forwarding emails, and set it up so a button on the toolbar called the send function, but it didn't do anything (no error, no email forward, nothing). I'm not sure why... I followed the author's directions exactly. Perhaps it's my security settings (Outlook set to use Restricted Zone, Restricted Zone set to disable everything). I can not lower security to accomplish this email forwarding thing, though.
Anyway, I'm a VBA oldie who's forgotten most of it, so I'm for all intents and purposes a VBA newbie. It's amazing how much you can forget when you stop using a programming language.
Thanks for your help.

Clicking Picturebox Show Menu, Click Elsewhere Disappear Menu
I've soem pictureboxes, and I want to show too command buttons when you click on on of the images but if you click somewhere else I want to make them dissappear, I tried the form_click event, and from_mousedown even, but they only work when you click on the form, but I've loads of other things on it, so the user must be "lucky" to click on the form, but to put the code to make them disappear in every object of the form would take a lot of time and I wonderd if there was another way to make them disappear again after clicking on something else???(its not that I don't want to ut the code there because of the work, but if I didn't search for a better methods then I would stay at the same level of programming)
Runtime Menu/Right Click Menu/No Border Form
Ok, I am trying to make a form as small as possible. I turned on the boreders and its just the way I want it. Now I would like create a popup menu (to save space, instead of puting command buttons). The problem is, when I add an invislbe menu in the menu editor and try to use Popupmenu, borders and the title bar appear on my form even though borders are still set to none.
From the search I did there seems to be no way to create a run time menu without some APIs. Is there any other way to accomplish a right click menu in this situation? Thanks.

Popup (right-click) Menu From Standard Menu
I've searched and searched and cannot find any information on how to get a pop-up menu to appear when you right-click on a standard menu item. A classic example of this is in Internet Explorer's Favorites menu. If you right-click on a favorite, a popup menu appears and you can rename, delete, etc. the highlighted favorite. In VB6, accessing a menu item does not appear to fire the MouseUp or MouseDown events. Any thoughts?

How i can get my application name in system context menu when right click on a file and on click opens that file in my application? Like winzip.
Please give me some suggestions.
I want to know how to invoke item in context-menu of another application.
Situation: I have an application which is a data window with “SysListView32” class. When I right click inside this window, the context menu pops-up and there is a option to copy the data, which basically gets copied to clipboard.
Problem: The problem is that the the ‘copy’ option of the context-menu doesn’t have ‘Ctrl+C’ option so sendkey doesn’t copy data from this window.
What I want? – I want to know if there is any other way where I can get menu handle or menu-id of one particular option within context menu. I want to send message to this window and achieve the result that would happened when ‘Copy’ option is selected within the context menu.
Thought – I know something like this is possible for normal menu options that are there on top of the window, like you can SendMessage to menu-id.
Can a similar this be achieved for auto selecting a particular option of context-menu of another application?
Would appreciate help on this one?
I want to write an application in VB 6.0, it automatically calls a context menu item of a control in .net application (It looks like we right-click on that control and choose a menu item when the context menu appeared).

Swf Context Menu
Does anyone know a way to disable the context menu which appears when you right click on a swf? In the control's properties, you can disable everything except for the last selection.....which is a link to Macromedia's website. My goal is preventing users from opening up I.E.
I've tried using a webbrowser control instead of the shockwave control to display the swf. With this I used Bloodeye's code to disable right click in a webbrowser, which worked w/ html pages, but not when the url was a non-embedded swf.
I have made a usercontrol that show files/folders from a specific path using a ListView control.
Is possible to show the context menu for my file/folder with a right click, like Windows?
Thanks to all
suppose I've popped up a context menu
now the menu is open
but it wont close until I do a left click somewhere outside its area. What I want is on rightclick outside the are to reopen it again on the new position.
