I don't knof if that's the right place, since it's not c++ specific but a windows development doubt...
(and sorry my english)

My problem is kinda stupid, but i don't know whats happening, im tryng to show a popup menu when user press the righ mouse buttom, in the cursor position, the problem is it shows up far away from the cursor position, but ever in the same position from the mouse..

Im in a windows 2000 SP4, using Visual Studio 2005 pro, win 32 application

My code is a mess..im just praticing windows programin for the first time..

void DisplayPopupMenu(long x, long y){
	GetSystemMetrics(SM_MENUDROPALIGNMENT);//determine the correct horizontal alignment flag (TPM_LEFTALIGN or TPM_RIGHTALIGN) 
	HMENU temp= GetSubMenu(PopupMenu,0);
	TrackPopupMenu(temp,TPM_LEFTALIGN|TPM_RIGHTBUTTON,x,y,0,Window,NULL);
}
LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hWnd, UINT msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam){
	switch(msg){
		case WM_DESTROY: PostQuitMessage(0);break;//when 'X' is clicked: quit application(sends a WM_QUIT)
		case WM_COMMAND: WMCommand(hWnd, msg, wParam, lParam);break;//function to buttons(listed ^up)
		case WM_RBUTTONUP: DisplayPopupMenu(LOWORD(lParam), HIWORD(lParam)); break;
			                          //WM_RBUTTONUP : actived when mouse right button is released( it uses iParam to
			                         //obtain x an y of the mouse, to get those we need the macro LOWORD(to x) andHIWORD(to y))
			
		}
		return(DefWindowProc(hWnd, msg, wParam, lParam));
	}

Thats the part of the code what do the popup menu stuff, but I don't know if you need more stuff to see, so I will post the entire code:

#include <windows.h>
//#include <winbase.h>
#include "resource.h"



HMENU PopupMenu;
HMENU Menu;
HWND Window;
HWND b_CreateWall;//just as normal windows interface, buttons are handles of a window

const int width=640;//screen width and height
const int height=480;
const int b_width=100;//button width and height
const int b_height=20;


//its a good idea create a function for WM_COMMAND, cause the msg handler(WndProc) will clutter
//if i make it all with 'case:'
//same parameters of the handler
//converts b_CreateWall to LPARAM e compare with lParam, if its the same, a buttom is clicked
void WMCommand(HWND hWnd, UINT msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam){
	if(lParam==(LPARAM)b_CreateWall) MessageBoxA(Window,"apertou 'b_CreateWall'","botao",MB_OK);
	
	else if(wParam==ID_FILE_EXIT40003)PostQuitMessage(0);//if clicked exit on file menu

	else if(wParam==ID_DRAWING_WIREFRAME){//if clicked it
		CheckMenuItem(Menu,ID_DRAWING_WIREFRAME,MF_CHECKED);
		CheckMenuItem(Menu,ID_DRAWING_SOLID,MF_UNCHECKED);
	}
	else if(wParam==ID_DRAWING_SOLID){
		CheckMenuItem(Menu,ID_DRAWING_SOLID,MF_CHECKED);
		CheckMenuItem(Menu,ID_DRAWING_WIREFRAME,MF_UNCHECKED);
	}

	//popup menu:
	else if(wParam==ID_POPUP_MOVE) MessageBoxA(Window,"apertou 'Move'","clicked",MB_OK);
	else if(wParam==ID_POPUP_DUPLICATE) MessageBoxA(Window,"apertou 'Duplicate'","clicked",MB_OK);
	else if(wParam==ID_POPUP_DELETE) MessageBoxA(Window,"apertou 'Delete'","clicked",MB_OK);
	else if(wParam==ID_POPUP_TEXTURE) MessageBoxA(Window,"apertou 'Texture'","clicked",MB_OK);
}

void DisplayPopupMenu(long x, long y){
	GetSystemMetrics(SM_MENUDROPALIGNMENT);//determine the correct horizontal alignment flag (TPM_LEFTALIGN or TPM_RIGHTALIGN) 
	HMENU temp= GetSubMenu(PopupMenu,0);
	TrackPopupMenu(temp,TPM_LEFTALIGN|TPM_RIGHTBUTTON,x,y,0,Window,NULL);
}

		return(DefWindowProc(hWnd, msg, wParam, lParam));

By the way, the popup menu is working, the problem is just the position..

Your problem is very small :) The coordinate in which you are trying to display the menu is not based on the client location. Change your WM_RBUTTONUP message like this:

case WM_RBUTTONUP: 
   POINT p;
   p.x = LOWORD(lParam);
   p.y = HIWORD(lParam);
   ClientToScreen(hWnd, &p);
   DisplayPopupMenu(p.x, p.y);
   break;

Hope this helps.

Yeah, it works perfectly! o.o
Tanx a lot man!!

But, do you know what was that my wrong code was returning as x and y before? Im curious.
