Exactly what I was looking for. :salute:

I have decided to remove lines 6, 7, 8 and 78.
On line 5 I changed the variable "win_hwnd"

"WindowProc" function does not work in 32 bits?

Code: Select all

ShellContextMenu( sPath, win_hwnd = 0 ) {
   if ( !sPath  )
   if !win_hwnd
   win_hwnd := DllCall( "User32.dll\FindWindow", "Str", "AutoHotkey", "Str", A_ScriptFullPath ( A_IsCompiled ? "" : " - AutoHotkey v" A_AhkVersion ))

   If sPath Is Not Integer
      DllCall("shell32\SHParseDisplayName", "Wstr", sPath, "Ptr", 0, "Ptr*", pidl, "Uint", 0, "Uint*", 0)
      ;This function is the preferred method to convert a string to a pointer to an item identifier list (PIDL).
      DllCall("shell32\SHGetFolderLocation", "Ptr", 0, "int", sPath, "Ptr", 0, "Uint", 0, "Ptr*", pidl)
   DllCall("shell32\SHBindToParent", "Ptr", pidl, "Ptr", GUID4String(IID_IShellFolder,"{000214E6-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"), "Ptr*", pIShellFolder, "Ptr*", pidlChild)
   DllCall(VTable(pIShellFolder, 10), "Ptr", pIShellFolder, "Ptr", 0, "Uint", 1, "Ptr*", pidlChild, "Ptr", GUID4String(IID_IContextMenu,"{000214E4-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"), "Ptr", 0, "Ptr*", pIContextMenu)

   hMenu := DllCall("CreatePopupMenu")
   DllCall(VTable(pIContextMenu, 3), "Ptr", pIContextMenu, "Ptr", hMenu, "Uint", 0, "Uint", 3, "Uint", 0x7FFF, "Uint", 0x100)   ;CMF_EXTENDEDVERBS
      global pIContextMenu2 := ComObjQuery(pIContextMenu, IID_IContextMenu2:="{000214F4-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}")
      global pIContextMenu3 := ComObjQuery(pIContextMenu, IID_IContextMenu3:="{BCFCE0A0-EC17-11D0-8D10-00A0C90F2719}")
   e := A_LastError ;GetLastError()
   if (e != 0)
      goTo, StopContextMenu
   Global   WPOld:= DllCall("SetWindowLongPtr", "Ptr", win_hwnd, "int",-4, "Ptr",RegisterCallback("WindowProc"),"UPtr")

   idn := DllCall("TrackPopupMenuEx", "Ptr", hMenu, "Uint", 0x0100|0x0001, "int", pt << 32 >> 32, "int", pt >> 32, "Ptr", win_hwnd, "Uint", 0)

SetWindowLongPtr doesn't exist in a 32-bit user32.dll. Try replacing Global WPOld:= DllCall("SetWindowLongPtr", "Ptr", win_hwnd, "int",-4, "Ptr",RegisterCallback("WindowProc"),"UPtr") with Global WPOld:= DllCall(A_PtrSize == 8 ? "SetWindowLongPtr" : "SetWindowLong", "Ptr", win_hwnd, "int",-4, "Ptr",RegisterCallback("WindowProc"),"Ptr")

Code: Select all

win_hwnd := DllCall( "User32.dll\FindWindow", "Str", "AutoHotkey", "Str", A_ScriptFullPath ( A_IsCompiled ? "" : " - AutoHotkey v" A_AhkVersion ))

are you aware that Shift+F10 opens the context menu for the currently selected item?
Yes. But what I want is to open the context menu of another app.
Qwerty already solved this for me.
