New on keyboards is the so called application-key. Within Windows, pushing this key lets appear a popup-menu. You can use this in PowerBuilder also.



Code the following script in the key-event of your window.


Constant Integer    VK_APP = 93

m_popup             lmnu_Popup


If Message.WordParm = VK_APP Then

   lmnu_Popup = Create m_popup

   lmnu_Popup.m_edit.PopMenu( PointerX(), PointerY() )

End If
