You need to send a WM_NOTIFY message, but there is also some work with structures and it's definitely not one line of code...

Heres what you need to do. As with much of what I write... This is pseudo code. I haven't tested it at all.

$iListviewId = Id of the listview
$iItem = The ZERO BASED index of the item. 
$iSubItem = The subitem (zero based as well)

$hParentGUI = Handle of the parent GUI (Possibly using _WinAPI_GetParent)
$hListViewHandle = Handle of the listview (GUICtrlGetHandle?)
$x = The x coord of the click. NB this is important as many implementations of right clicks rely on this to pass to a LVM_SUBITEMHITTEST message or similar
$y = y coord. The x and y could be got using LVM_GETITEMPOSITION if it's not the mouse pos.

Local $tNMIA = DllStructCreate($tagNMITEMACTIVATE)

; NMHDR parts
DllStructSetData($tNMIA, "hWndFrom", $hListViewHandle)
DllStructSetData($tNMIA, "Code", $NM_RCLICK)

DllStructSetData($tNMIA, "Item", $iItem)
DllStructSetDate($tNMIA, "SubItem", $iSubItem)
DllStructSetDate($tNMIA, "X", $iX)
DllStructSetDate($tNMIA, "Y", $iY)

_SendMessage($hParentGUI, $WM_NOTIFY, $iListviewId, DllStructGetPtr($tNMIA))
