How to create a shell extension context menu.

I've put it up here, but since it's a pretty good boiler plate code, I'll put it up here as well. Include a unit like this one into an ActiveX library. I especially had a though time to get the values right that are based on idCmdFirst and get sent back when a menu item is invoked. Something that gives pretty strange results if you don't get it right.

unit demoContextMenu;

interface

uses
  Windows, Classes, ActiveX, ComObj, ShlObj;

type
  PItemIDList=LPCITEMIDLIST;

  { TContextMenu }
  TContextMenu = class(TComObject, IShellExtInit, IContextMenu)
  private
	Files:TStringList;
  protected
	{ IShellExtInit }
	function IShellExtInit.Initialize = SEIInitialize;
	function SEIInitialize(pidlFolder: PItemIDList; lpdobj: IDataObject;
	  hKeyProgID: HKEY): HResult; stdcall;
	{ IContextMenu }
	function QueryContextMenu(Menu: HMENU; indexMenu, idCmdFirst, idCmdLast,
	  uFlags: UINT): HResult; stdcall;
	function InvokeCommand(var lpici: TCMInvokeCommandInfo): HResult; stdcall;
	function GetCommandString(idCmd: UINT_Ptr; uType: UINT; pwReserved: PUINT;
