    Property Value

    Boolean value: true for the control to automatically use the drop-down menu; false otherwise

    If this property is set to true, when the user clicks the right mouse button while the pointer is over the control at run time, the control displays a pop-up menu. You can create a custom menu using the ContextMenu property. The default menu has the basic edit operations listed in the following table.

    Any operation that is not available is grayed out (disabled) in the menu.
