TextArea context menu


On my Mac I have in a TextArea always a context menu with “Font” and all the useful items like “bold”, “italic” and so on.

In Windows it seems that a TextArea doesn’t have a standard context menu (testet with Windows 10 and Xojo 2016r3).

Does anybody know whether there is a possibility to get such a context menu in Windows without to build it all new ?

You can use the Textarea event handlers “ConstructContextMenu” and ‘ContextualMeunuAction’ to create you own context menus. It’s quite straight forward and since "ConstructContextMenu’ runs on a right mouseclick, you can have it as dynamic as you like.
