The following example demonstrates how to show a shortcut menu when the user presses the barrel button on a stylus. This example assumes that there is a TextBox called textBox1, and a ContextMenu called textBoxContextMenu, and that the StylusButtonDown event is connected to the event handler.

// Show or hide a shortcut menu when the user clicks the barrel button.
void textbox1_StylusButtonDown(object sender, StylusButtonEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.StylusButton.Guid != StylusPointProperties.BarrelButton.Id)
    {
        return;
    }

    if (textbox1.ContextMenu == null)
    {
        textbox1.ContextMenu = textBoxContextMenu;
    }
    else
    {
        textbox1.ContextMenu = null;
    }
}
