IUIAutomationTextRange2::ShowContextMenu method

Programmatically invokes a context menu on the target element.

Syntax


HRESULT ShowContextMenu();

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

This method returns an error code if the context menu could not be invoked. If no context menu is available directly on the text range on which it was invoked, the Microsoft UI Automation system might attempt to invoke a context menu on the UI Automation parent of the current item.

The context menus themselves fire menu opened / closed events when they are invoked and dismissed.
