The sample "TOCControlContextMenu" demonstrates how to display a context menu from the AxTOCControl. When I run this sample and right-click on the TOC control the context menu pops up and remains displayed until I select a menu item. In my application the right-click displays the context menu but as soon as I release the right-mouse-button the first item in the menu is selected. I can see no substantial differences in the code. Has anyone observered (and possibility overcome) this behavior before?

It seems that the popupmenu was positioned too close to the mouse cursor. Since it is impossible to turn off selection with the right-mouse-button in the ESRI popupmenu the only solution I could find was to bump the menu a few pixels over (+5.) This worked. – Chaz Oct 31 '11 at 17:30
