excontextmenu - sample code

How can I display a context menu?

VBA (MS Access, Excell...)

	Set contextMenu = CreateObject("Exontrol.ContextMenu")
	With contextMenu
		.Items.ToString = "Item A,Item B,Item 3,[sep],Popup(Sub Item A,Sub Item B,Sub Item C,[sep],Popup(Sub Sub Item A,Su" & _
"b Sub Item B,Sub Sub Item C))"
		iSelect = .Select()
		Debug.Print( .Items.item(iSelect).Caption )
	End With

VB6

	Set contextMenu = CreateObject("Exontrol.ContextMenu")
	With contextMenu
		.Items.ToString = "Item A,Item B,Item 3,[sep],Popup(Sub Item A,Sub Item B,Sub Item C,[sep],Popup(Sub Sub Item A,Su" & _
"b Sub Item B,Sub Sub Item C))"
		iSelect = .Select()
		Debug.Print( .Items.item(iSelect).Caption )
	End With

VB.NET

Dim contextMenu,iSelect
	' Add 'exontrol.excontextmenu.dll' reference to your project.
	contextMenu = New exontrol.EXCONTEXTMENULib.excontextmenu()
	With contextMenu
		.Items.ToString = "Item A,Item B,Item 3,[sep],Popup(Sub Item A,Sub Item B,Sub Item C,[sep],Popup(Sub Sub Item A,Su" & _
"b Sub Item B,Sub Sub Item C))"
		iSelect = .Select()
		Debug.Print( .Items.get_item(iSelect).Caption )
	End With

VB.NET for /COM
