floating context menu

2 posts in this topic

Hi, this is a first post...

I designined a little app using power pro

And I am trying to use autoit to develop a downloadable .exe of the same functionality.

But Autoit does things in a different style, for example getting you to put everything on a gui....

How can I get my own "Context" Menu to appear at the cursor when I hold the right mouse button down, system wide?

button down

menu appears at cursor possition

make selection

menu goes away

..no OK button, no clunky border, no title, no minimize......

can I use Autoit for this?
