The UIHWCMDID_RightClick command is what tells the interface IVsUIHierarchy in a IVsUIHierarchyWindow to display the context menu. Since the mouse position may change between the mouse down and the mouse up events and the right click command might even originate from the keyboard Visual Studio provides the proper menu position into pvaIn by performing a memory copy operation on a POINTS structure into the VT_UI4 part of the pvaIn variant.

To show the menu use the derived POINTS as the coordinates to show the context menu, calling ShowContextMenu. To ensure proper command handling you should pass a NULL command target into ShowContextMenu menu so that the IVsUIHierarchyWindow will have the first chance to handle commands like delete.

The events UIHWCMDID_StartLabelEdit, UIHWCMDID_CommitLabelEdit, and UIHWCMDID_CancelLabelEdit are for notification only. Changing the text of the node will be handled through SetProperty with the property set to VSHPROPID_EditLabel.
