Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.dll)

public enum OLEMENU

Member nameDescription
OLEMENU_MENUMERGEIndicates that the UI active object's menu should merge with the component's container menu.
OLEMENU_CNTRMENUONLYIndicates that all menu commands should be routed to the component. Only the menu of the container should be displayed.
OLEMENU_OBJECTMENUONLYIndicates that only the menu of the active object should be displayed.
OLEMENU_ROUTEACTIVEASCNTRCMDIndicates that commands from the active object menu are routed first to the main component (OLEROLE_MAINCOMPONENT). If the main component does not handle a command, it is then routed to the component that is UI active (visible with focus). OLEMENU_ROUTEACTIVEASCNTRCMD may only be used by a main component that wants to ensure that it is in control of commands that are dispatched to its nested components. It is analogous to OLECOMPFLAG_ROUTEACTIVEASCNTRCMD.

The OLEMENU_MENUMERGE, OLEMENU_CNTRMENUONLY, and OLEMENU_OBJECTMENUONLY flags are mutually exclusive.

The hardwired in-place component returns these flags from GetCntrContextMenu to control how the component control's context menu is merged into the container's menu.
