RAD Studio VCL Reference
ActnPopup.NewPopupMenu Function

Creates and initializes a popup menu.

function NewPopupMenu(Owner: TComponent; const AName: string; Alignment: TPopupAlignment; AutoPopup: Boolean; const Items: array of TMenuItem): TPopupMenu;
TPopupMenu NewPopupMenu(TComponent * Owner, const AnsiString AName, TPopupAlignment Alignment, Boolean AutoPopup, const array of TMenuItem Items);

Call NewPopupMenu to create and initialize a popup menu programmatically. NewPopupMenu returns the TPopupMenu component that represents the popup menu, but does not associate that popup menu with any control. 

The Owner parameter specifies the component that is responsible for freeing the menu. 

The AName parameter specifies the name of the popup menu, which is used to refer to it in code. 

The Alignment parameter determines where the menu appears relative to the mouse when the user right clicks on the control that uses the menu. 

The AutoPopup parameter specifies whether the menu should appear automatically when the user right clicks the associated control. 

The Items parameter is an array of menu items that make up the top level menu items. To create the menu items for the Items parameter, use the NewItem function.

Note: The Items_Size parameter specifies the index of the last menu item in Items (one less than the number of menu items).
