  1. Re: How can I control pop up menu In program another

    Most likely won't work from a button because as soon as you click the button the context menu would close! I 'd try putting code in a timer and then start & stop the timer as needed.

  15. Re: [RESOLVED] ListView check\unchecked - a better way

    FWIW, Your code causes error for me (line 6),

    Replicate error,
    1) Start with no items checked.
    2) Check index 0 with mouse.
    3) Try to UnCheck index 0, or Check any other index with mouse.

    You don't. When adding items it much easier to simply check if the item is in the list, if not then you add it.
