When user clicks the CExtPropertyCategory item, I modify the CExtPropertyGridCtrl popup menu in the ::OnPgcContextMenuReconstruct() method:

    bool CMyExtPropertyGridCtrl::OnPgcContextMenuReconstruct(CExtPopupMenuWnd *pPopup, CWnd *pWndHit, CPoint ptScreen, CExtGridHitTestInfo *pHtInfo, CExtPropertyItem *pPropertyItem, CExtPropertyGridWnd *pPGW)
        if (pPropertyItem && pPropertyItem->IsKindOf(RUNTIME_CLASS(CExtComponentPropertyCategory)))
            pPopup->LoadMenu(GetSafeHwnd(), IDR_PROPERTY_CATEGORY_MENU, false, true);

            return true;

        return CExtPPVW<CExtPropertyGridCtrl>::OnPgcContextMenuReconstruct(pPopup, pWndHit, ptScreen, pHtInfo, pPropertyItem, pPGW);

It works, but since I am working with the trial version of Prof-UIS library at the moment and thus can’t take a look at the CExtPropertyGridCtrl implementation, I can’t understand how and where to catch the click event on the reconstructed menu item...

Please tell me, what should I do?

Thank you.

Silly me... Thank you!

You have invoked the following code:

pPopup->LoadMenu( GetSafeHwnd(), IDR_PROPERTY_CATEGORY_MENU, false, true );
The popup menu will send WM_COMMAND messages to the window handle you have specified.
