How do I set the point where context menu was invoked as the current keyboard cursor position ?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl |

You could place the EditControl's keyboard cursor at the same point at which the context menu was invoked using mouse right click by handling the EditControl's MouseDown event as shown below.


private void editControl1_MouseDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)


if (Control.MouseButtons == MouseButtons.Right)


this.editControl1.CurrentPosition = this.editControl1.PointToVirtualPosition(this.editControl1.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition));




Private Sub editControl1_MouseDown(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles editControl1.MouseDown

If Control.MouseButtons = MouseButtons.Right Then

Me.editControl1.CurrentPosition = Me.editControl1.PointToVirtualPosition(Me.editControl1.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition))

End If

End Sub 'editControl1_MouseDown

Please refer to the test sample attached below that provides further information in this regard.
