The popupclick statement displays a pop-up menu at the current mouse location.


Parameters

This statement has three parameters:

list – Carriage return separated array of choices to appear in pop-up menu.

initial – Initial choice to be selected in pop-up menu (or "" if no choice).

choice – Item user selected in pop-up menu (or "" if no choice). Note: If the menu was constructed with identifiers you can also use the info(“menuidentifier”) function to determine the chosen menu item.


Description

This statement can be used to produce a pop-up menu at the current mouse position. It is intended that this statement be used in a procedure that is triggered by a button on a form (or any form object that triggers a procedure). The procedure must be triggered on mouse down, not mouse up.

Here is an example that displays a pop-up menu with three colors when the button is clicked.

// colorChoice now contains the color name
