Problem in Flash Player 11.2+ with Right Clicking to show Context Menu

Aug 8, 2012 6:04 AM

In Flash Player 11.2 and above:


1. Right-click to show context menu.

2. Click somewhere outside menu to hide it.

3. Every mouse event has "buttonPressed=true"

This will have many side effects, one of which is the ContextMenuEvent.MENU_SELECT event will not be triggered and therefore handling custom menus becomes impossible.

Is this is a known bug? Is there a workaround?

    I haven't seen this come up before, but usually this forum deals with end user issues.  I'd recommend hoping over to and entering a bug.  We'll take a look and let you know what we find.
