hi there,

i'm trying to use a context menu with the viewControl. i have a fine context menu and i have assigned it to the contextMenu property of the viewControl. if i rightClick into the control nothing happens.

does someone know of an example that employs context menus with the navis .net view control?

thanks for the help, and kind regards

Unfortunately, the overridden methods which derive from Windows control have not been implemented in .NET control of Navisworks. So you cannot use these methods, including mouse events, key events etc.


The only practice I can think of is to take advantage of the context menu events of the Form.
