Simulate Contextual Menu

P: n/a
Has anyone ever considered making a simulated contextual menu. I know
that you can sometimes trap a right click or option click. Why not open
up a window that would act as a menu when this happens?

It would be a challenge to actually have existing contextual menu
options along with your added ones. Any ideas on how to do this or has
it been done?

Doesn't work in Opera 7...
I mean, the context-menu. I just get the normal one.

Worked in NN7, though. Looked nice, too.

Even if I allow Javascript to receive right clicks, it still doesn't
work. I get no menu at all then.

and my reply is:
Looks good. I'll have to take a closer look at the code when I have a
chance. I still would like it to act more like a contextual menu. Open
on mouse down, close on mouse up, etc.
