help on contextmenustrip

Hi All,

I created a contextmenustrip which is connected to a listview.
Now I need some way to check if I right-clicked on a listview item
before calling the msgbox.
Right now I can click wherever on the listview it will always fire, if
there's an item or not.

Private Sub OpenToolStripMenuItem1_Click(ByVal sender As
System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles
OpenToolStripMenuItem1.Click
MsgBox("Open")
End Sub

Private Sub EditToolStripMenuItem1_Click(ByVal sender As
System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles
EditToolStripMenuItem1.Click
MsgBox("Edit")
End Sub
Private Sub DeleteToolStripMenuItem1_Click(ByVal sender As
System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles
DeleteToolStripMenuItem1.Click
MsgBox("Delete")
End Sub

Regards
Marco

What you are looking for is HitTest. This will return a ListViewHitTestInfo
object which will provide the listviewitem if you right click over an item.

Marco,

There are several steps to accomplish this.

1. On the MouseDown event for the ListView capture and store the x and y
cooridinates of the mouse pointer as:

Private _MouseX As Integer
Private _MouseY As Integer

Code in the event handler
_MouseX = e.X
_MouseY = e.Y

2. In the Opening event of the context menu

Dim mousePos as new Point(_MouseX,_MouseY)
Dim tstOBj As ListViewHitTestInfo = Me.SongFileView.HitTest(mousePos)

Now you can test the properties of tstOBj to see if there is a listviewitem.

Hope this helps
LS
