Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)

public virtual ContextMenuStrip ContextMenuStrip { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip

The ContextMenuStrip for the control, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if there is no ContextMenuStrip assigned. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

If a ContextMenu has also been assigned to the control, the ContextMenu property takes precedence over the ContextMenuStrip property.

The following example displays the ContextMenuStrip assigned to a OvalShape control when the right mouse button is clicked and released. This code requires that you have a Form with an OvalShape control on it. It is also required that the OvalShape has a ContextMenuStrip assigned to its ContextMenuStrip property.

private void ovalShape1_MouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    // If the right mouse button is clicked and released,
    // display the shortcut menu assigned to the TreeView. 
    if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
        ovalShape1.ContextMenuStrip.Show(this, new Point(e.X, e.Y));
