    What messages have you handled for the context menu?

    To get position of controls, you could do this:

    Code:
    CRect rcRect;
    myListCtrl.GetWindowRect(&rcRect);

    But OP needs to get coordinates of list control item(s), not a control itself!

    Have a look at CListCtrl::GetItemRect and CListCtrl::GetSubItemRect methods in MSDN.

    As cilu guessed, you might implement it in some wrong message handler?
    You should do it in OnContextMenu message handler (message WM_CONTEXTMENU) in your View (or CListCtrl) derived class.
