  • [Bug] Panorama oncontextmenu event is broken

    One of my panels has a function that is called in the onactivate event that works fine. I changed the event to oncontextmenu and nothing else, but the event does not work trigger more. I have tried right clicking on the panel, and I have tried the context menu key on my keyboard, but still it does not work. According to the description on the wiki, oncontextmenu triggers when "User right clicked on the panel, or used the context menu key on their keyboard", so I think this is very likely a bug.

    Works fine for me. :/

    context menu key

    e/ is it a Panel or a Button? a Button is just a Panel that filters mouse events
    Every time you have an issue, spend at least 5 minutes on each of these four sites Google, Wiki, Github, and ModDota
    If you still can't figure out your issue, post your issue on moddota in as much detail as possible with a SSCCE. If you do not complete these requirements, than you will be rejected by the community. Try not to contact individual users for help as we are very busy.

      It seems to work now if I change the panel to a button. Strange, but I will not complain if it works. Thanks for the help.

        A Button is mostly just a panel that automatically sets acceptsfocus="true". If you set an onactivate event on a panel, it also automatically sets acceptsfocus="true". I suspect that by switching to oncontextmenu, acceptsfocus was being left as the default "false", which was causing the right click not to work.

        If you want to keep it a Panel, then you can mark it as acceptsfocus="true" and then it should work. That being said, switching to Button often conveys the intent better, so it's also a good option.
