    Angry Android ContextMenu Preference list - implement

    I am trying to implement a context menu. I have a preference list that I can get the view and ID of each item in the pref list but, for the life of me , I can not get my context menu to come up. When I longclick on a pref item I can Toast its ID and view. Where should I put the onCreateContextMenu and the onContextItemSelected to get my menu to come up? I commented out registerForContextMenu(view); because I was still able to Toast the view and ID without it. Any help would be great!

    public class MainActivity extends PreferenceActivity {
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


    ListView listView = getListView();
    listView.setOnItemLongClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemLongClickListener() {

    public boolean onItemLongClick(AdapterView parent, View view, int position, long id) {
    ListView listView = (ListView) parent;
    ListAdapter listAdapter = listView.getAdapter();
    Object obj = listAdapter.getItem(position);
    if (obj != null && obj instanceof View.OnLongClickListener) {
    View.OnLongClickListener longListener = (View.OnLongClickListener) obj;
    return longListener.onLongClick(view);
    } else {
    Preference pref = (Preference) obj;
    // prefs
    makeToast("pref toast - " + id + view);

    //onCreateContextMenu(R.menu.context_menu, view, ContextMenu.ContextMenuInfo menuInfo);
    return true;

    public boolean onLongClick(View v) {
    // long click
    return true;

    public void onCreateContextMenu(ContextMenu menu, View v, ContextMenu.ContextMenuInfo menuInfo) {
    MenuInflater inflateLayout = getMenuInflater();
    inflateLayout.inflate(R.menu.context_menu, menu);
    super.onCreateContextMenu(menu, v, menuInfo);
    public boolean onContextItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
    switch (item.getItemId()) {
    case R.id.item1:
    makeToast("mmm 1 slice");
    case R.id.item2:
    makeToast("mmm 2 slices");
    return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);

    public void makeToast(String message) {
    Toast.makeText(this, message, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
