Popup menu stops everything - way around it?

Popup menu stops everything - way around it?

(OP)
Is there a way to allow Timers to continue firing, or the normal execution of code to continue, even if a PopupMenu is displayed?

RE: Popup menu stops everything - way around it?

Is this something you coded, or a system popup? If you coded a popup form set it's modal property to false, or try adding a DoEvents in your code.

RE: Popup menu stops everything - way around it?

As it says in the manual:

Quote:

When you display a pop-up menu, the code following the call to the PopupMenu method isn't executed until the user either chooses a command from the menu (in which case the code for that command's Click event is executed before the code following the PopupMenu statement) or cancels the menu.

I assume these are implemented as modal windows. There is nothing you can do about it except try to get clever using something else that "looks like" a menu.

Timers should keep firing.

Thanks. Stupidly I was opening the PopupMenu from within the Timer event which is why I thought the timer had stopped firing.
