Listview.dll: Hide context menu

    Hi, I have a problem with the listview.dll: I use it to display some data with a context menu attached. When a user clicks on an entry in the context menu, he is presented with an input dialog (implemented with panel) to enter a value.
    However, when the input panel opens, the context menu is still open (and actually hides part of the input dialog).

    I need a way to hide the context menu (or fold it back). Is there any way to achieve this?

    The context menu should disappear after the user presses on one of the entries.
    When does eventually the context menu disappear?

    Sample program

    I have stripped down my program as far as I could and attached it.
    To test it, go to "Menu" - "Show remembered", right-click on an item and click "Send per SMS".
    Then you see the described behaviour.

    Funny enough, I just tested it on the device (O2 XDA Orbit), and there it works fine. So the error occurs only on the desktop and therefore isn't that important for me to be solved.

    Thanks anyway,

    I notice this behaviour too...

    It seems that the context menu choice is being triggered, but only on the second click the context menu hides...
    I have used context menu before and had none of these issues, so I guess it has to do with the listview and how it handles the context menu...

    Hi Frank,

    I have resolved the mistake with the contextmenu in my DLL.:)

    Hi Filippo,

    please could you also update your "official" listview thread with the most recent version?

    I'm asking because Cableguys "DLL Version listings..." thread is pointing to it, so it would be nice for everyone finding this bugfixed dll instead of an old one... ;)

    Thank you

    Hallo specci48,

    I'm not ready, I want a few more features to add and the help-file.

    ich bin noch nicht so weit, ich möchte noch ein paar Funktionen hinzufügen und die Hilfe-Datei aktualisieren.
