Subject Further question about menu context
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2010 15:21:46 GMT
I'm working with the latest changes to 1.5.2/2.0 to pass in the
Component to the Action.perform() method(s), and I'm still having
trouble with differentiating the source of the action, particularly for
context menus vs. regular menus.  I (rather naively) thought that I
could test to see if the Menu.Item was ultimately parented by a MenuBar
or not to differentiate the regular window menu from a right-click menu.
Not so - both end up parented by a MenuPopup attached to the Display.
Then I thought I could use "isContextMenu()" from MenuPopup, which does
work, but not for submenus.... L  Is this a bug, or a misunderstanding
on my part?  Is there any other way to tell whether the menu item is
coming from a right-click menu or the menu bar?  Thanks.


The use case here is that I have some right-click menu items that do the
same action as regular menu items, but with different context.  Right
now, I mapped them both to the same action.  But, maybe I need to make
separate actions and that will solve it.  The case where the action is
invoked from a toolbar vs. a menu is solved with the Component being
passed in (also the shortcut key case).
