If this property is set to true, when the user clicks the right mouse button while the pointer is over the control at run time, the control displays a pop-up menu. You can create a custom menu using the ContextMenu property. The default menu has the basic edit operations listed in the following table.

Cut Ctrl+X Cuts text to the Clipboard
Copy Ctrl+C Copies text to the Clipboard
Paste Ctrl+P Pastes text from the Clipboard
Delete Ctrl+D Removes text
Select All Ctrl+A Highlights all text in the control    

Any operation that is not available is grayed out (disabled) in the menu.
