How to get a context menu of toolbar by right-clicking on it? Like in OperaAC toolbars, for example.

Thank you,
Anton

Well there are at least 3 ways:
1: If you want to activate the context menu with right-button down in the empty area of the Bar, just override ChildFrameEvent() method BUT don't use "child" pointer, instead use child->GetParent();

2: Better Way: If you want to activate context menu even when the tool buttons are pressed with the rigth buttons (or if you want to assign different context menus to tool buttons, use:

void BarContext::ChildMouseEvent(Ctrl *child, int event, Point p, int zdelta, dword keyflags)
{
	if(toolbar.HasChildDeep(child)) // Effects tool buttons too... (just specify which button, then you'll get different menus for each button)
	{
		if(event == RIGHTDOWN) MenuBar::Execute(THISBACK(SetMenuBar));
	}
	TopWindow::ChildMouseEvent(child, event, p, zdelta, keyflags);
}



3: Derive your class from ToolBar, then override ChildMouseEvent (imho, unnecessary)

Here is the example.

But what is the best way to determine which button was clicked? My code uses ctrl-descriptions for this purpose, but it is not the best way, I think.

Added: the variant below works too:

void BarContext::ChildMouseEvent(Ctrl *child, int event, Point p, int zdelta, dword keyflags)
{
	if(toolbar.HasChildDeep(child))
	{
		if(event == RIGHTDOWN)
		{
			Ctrl *c = child;
			int i = -1;
			
			while (c != NULL)
			{
				c = c->GetPrev();
				i++;
			}

			MenuBar::Execute(THISBACK1(SetMenuBar, i));
		}
	}
	Ctrl::ChildMouseEvent(child, event, p, zdelta, keyflags);
}
