What did I just right click on?
Delphi makes it very easy to add context sensitive
menus (or mostly known as popup menus that appear on
right mouse clicks!) to your application:
- Create a "New Application"
- Drop a "TPopupMenu"
component on your form
- Double click on it and add necessary menu items
- Select your form and set its "PopupMenu" property
to the newly created "TPopupMenu"
- Run your program to and right click on your form

name, you must assign the popup menu to each control's
