CContextMenuManager::ShowPopupMenu

Displays the specified shortcut menu.

virtual BOOL ShowPopupMenu(
   UINT uiMenuResId,
   int x,
   int y,
   CWnd* pWndOwner,
   BOOL bOwnMessage = FALSE,
   BOOL bRightAlign = FALSE
);

virtual CMFCPopupMenu* ShowPopupMenu(
   HMENU hmenuPopup,
   int x,
   int y,
   CWnd* pWndOwner,
   BOOL bOwnMessage = FALSE,
   BOOL bAutoDestroy = TRUE,
   BOOL bRightAlign = FALSE
);

[in] uiMenuResId

The resource ID of the menu that this method will display.

[in] x

The horizontal offset for the shortcut menu in client coordinates.

[in] y

The vertical offset for the shortcut menu in client coordinates

[in] pWndOwner

A pointer to the parent window of the shortcut menu.

[in] bOwnMessage

A Boolean parameter that indicates how messages are routed. If bOwnMessage is FALSE, standard MFC routing is used. Otherwise, pWndOwner receives the messages.

[in] hmenuPopup

The handle of the menu that this method will display.

[in] bAutoDestroy

A Boolean parameter that indicates whether the menu will be automatically destroyed.

[in] bRightAlign

A Boolean parameter that indicates how the menu items are aligned. If bRightAlign is TRUE, the menu is right-aligned for right-to-left reading order.

The first method overload returns nonzero if the method shows the menu successfully; otherwise 0. The second method overload returns a pointer to CMFCPopupMenu if the shortcut menu displays correctly; otherwise NULL.

This method resembles the method CContextMenuManager::TrackPopupMenu in that both methods display a shortcut menu. However, TrackPopupMenu returns the index of the selected menu command.

If the parameter bAutoDestroy is FALSE, you must manually call the inherited DestroyMenu method to release memory resources. The default implementation of ShowPopupMenu does not use the parameter bAutoDestroy. It is provided for future use or for custom classes derived from the CContextMenuManager Class.
