Shortcut run-time menus and ActiveX

I'm working on a Labview video player with four instances of VLC embedded in it, as ActiveX controls.  After some help from the forum, it runs very well, but I would like to implement custom right-click menu's for the ActiveX windows.  Currently, nothing happens when the user right-clicks on the ActiveX control.  I've tried enabling the shortcut menu, editing the menu, etc, and nothing worked.  I've tried overlaying another transparent control over top of the ActiveX window, but the ActiveX control seems to want to be on top no matter what I do.  Any ideas?

 

Running LV 8.6.1f

I tried your solution, but no joy.  It looks like your program is designed to set menu items programmatically, however, I'm fine setting the menu in edit mode, I just want to get the right click menu to show up at all.  Did I misunderstand your vi?

You said "but I would like to implement custom right-click menu's for the ActiveX windows"

 

so the program is designed to set menu items programmatically.
