Insert A New Right Click Context Menu Item To The Existing Right Click Context Menu For The Active Window?

May 15, 2010

VB express 2008 .net 3.5 or .net 4.0 VB express 2010?I have written application to convert RTF to HTML. The main Purpose of the application is to copy VS code to the clipboard and covert it then put it back into the clipboard as a HTML Document so that it can be pasted into a HTML document such as Windows Live Mail. I found that code copied and pasted is spaced out in in the wrong positions.

The applications works perfect with no bugs so far. I then asked Myself how to go about doing the copy with the least amount of operator interaction. So I added an Icon to the Icon Tray with a right click menu to use to convert once the Rich Text Format was copied to the clipboard. This works fine except you have Five steps, Select the text, Copy to clipboard, Right Click the icon, Select the Converter and Paste. The normal is three steps.

To this the best solution is to add a context menu item to the active form such as the RTF editor or window. So that when you select the Rich Text to copy and right click on the form to bring up that menu then to Just Select the menu Item such as "Copy RT and Convert"  I searched and found about 544000 Items and tried to restrict down to no avail. I read until I finally gave up. I did not find any code examples of this. Almost every thing I found related to the web or some other explicit document like Excel and not to the Various windows that could be active with RT in it.

how do you add a context menu item to the context menu of an active rich text format window such as WordPad or VB?I have test in my application that tests to see if it is a RTF in the clipboard so if it is not the converter does nothing.

Remove A Context Menu Item?

May 21, 2009

how to delete a item from the context menu.. i can add a item with this code:

Private Sub Button7_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button7.Click
ContextMenuStrip4.Items.Add("delete file")
End Sub

no problem there. and to delete this item, i figured since it is the 4th item in the contextmenu (and i can't type the "delete file" either w/o error) it would delete it by index, with this code:

Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click
ContextMenuStrip4.Items.Remove(3)
End Sub

the (3) is giving me a error "value of type 'interger' cannot be converted to 'system.windows.forms.toolstripmenu'".. i think that means that the context menu does not support indexing.

Determine Selected Item From Context Menu?

Feb 12, 2012

I want to add a context menu to a datagrid in VB2008 and I need to find out which menu item the user selected.

I don't want to use the ContextMenuStrip that's available in the toolbox since it doesn't allow for dynamic placement depending on what row is active in the grid (I haven't found a Top and Left property in the ContextMenuStrip)

Here's what I've got so far, I'm aware of the fact that the MsgBox uses a non-existing property, it is meant to show my intention.

Given the available properties in the ContextMenu object, I would think that there would be something like a SelectedItemCaption property but a search of the object tree yields no results.

dim grdContextMenu as ContextMenu
grdContextMenu = New ContextMenu
grdContextMenu.MenuItems.Add("Insert")

Context Menu Will Not Display On The First Click?

Sep 4, 2009

I have a flowlayoutpanel populated with custom thumbnail controls. I have code set to display a context menu on the thumbnail controls and the panel. Once a page is displayed, I have to right click on a control twice before the menu will be displayed. I have debugged and followed code execution all the way down the line. There seems to be no difference in code execution on the first click which does not display a context menu, and the second click which does. After a context menu is displayed, everything is normal. All thumbnails will display context menus as they should. But...not the panel....I have to do the same to the panel, then it is fine.

Determine Highlighted Item In Context Menu Strip?

Oct 6, 2009

Visual Studio 2005. Is there a way to determine which menu item is hi-lited in a ContextMenuStrip?

For example: I associate ContextMenuStrip1 with TextBox1.ContextMenuStrip1 contains 5 items with names:
Item1ToolStripMenuItem
Item2ToolStripMenuItem
Item3ToolStripMenuItem
Item4ToolStripMenuItem
Item5ToolStripMenuItem

A sub-menu is created with Item3ToolStripMenuItem that contains 5 items with names:
Item3aToolStripMenuItem
Item3bToolStripMenuItem
Item3cToolStripMenuItem
Item3dToolStripMenuItem
Item3eToolStripMenuItem

As the menu is navigated is there a way for the program to know which of the 10 menu items is hi-lited before a click event occurs?

Click Event For Context Menu And Sub Items?

Nov 25, 2009

I have a ContextMenuStrip click event.  I was hoping to use this whenever a user clicked onto the ContextMenuStrip or one of its subitems. I have noticed that it does not fire when the user clicks on the sub items.  Is there another click event that includes both the main menu And its sub items.  Note that I also have added individual events to the individual menu items and sub items to capture specific code for these items.  As such, I already know that I can use these events and call my desired code snippet in each of these if I have to.  However I was wondering if there was another general click event that captures all the items (main + sub).

Private Sub ContextMenuStrip1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ContextMenuStrip1.Click
'Some code here

Context Menu Location Right Click Datagridvew?

Jan 20, 2009

I'm hoping someone can help me here. I've been having trouble positioning a Contextmenu when a user right clicks a specific column within a Datagridview.

The Contextmenu is just a list of names and whatever name is selected then populates the 'Right-Clicked' Cell. My problem is the Contextmenu appears in the top left of the screen. I would like it to appear where the user 'Right-Clicked'

Here's the code I am using witih Datagridview1_CellMouseClick1

[Code]...

I'm a newbie and it's taken me a while to get it to work this far. I did originally assign a Contextmenu to the Datagridview Column, and it appears very neatly where the user 'Right-Clicked'

Unfortunately doing it this way I couldn't populate the Cell. So decided to use the method that I have posted above.

Passing Information On Click To A Context Menu?

May 3, 2010

I have a panel on my form, and at runtime I create 19 panels within it. Each of these panels then holds a rich text box, and a picturebox.I'm feeding the content to the picturebox and the richtextbox from twitter, but I'd like to make a ContextMenuStrip for each image at runtime, to reply/retweet/view that user's profile.I have a sub for reading tweets, but I'm not sure how I'd have the context menu customize for each image to contain the user id.I can't for the life of me think of a way to pass the twitter information to the context menu to facilitate this.Here's a sample of the code I'm using (it runs in a foreach loop) to populate the controls create at runtime.

int_pnl = int_pnl + 1
int_wbb = int_wbb + 1
Dim pnl_contain As New Panel

below here is a picture of the form itself in use, to try and show what's being done above.

VS 2008 Context Menu Left & Right Click Events

Oct 26, 2009

Anyways, after thorough researching as much about context menu, I have tried to do a left and right click context menu, including the events that will happen by opening the context menu. I wanted this to happen on a specific place, not the form itself (In this case, a picture).The left click context menu works fine, but when I try a right click context menu, the left click context menu will pop-up as soon as I release the right click button.[code]By using this code, I have a small nuisance of the right click event, where when released, it also uses the left click event. Any ideas of how to, well, stop it opening the left click menu when I release the right click button?Alternatively, I was thinking of using a mouse hover event to replace the right click event, but I'm not that advanced of a programmer.
