Hi All,

In my application, a JPanel gets displayed in a JWindow. I need to add a right-click menu (with 'Exit' and 'About') in that JPanel.

I am not able to add the popup menu in the JPanel.

Can anybody please help me out??? Any pointer would be helpful.

Thanks in advance...

This page does a good job of explaining mouse Events, and deals specifically with how to tell if a mouse click event is a right click, once you determine that you can take the appropriate steps to display your menu.

edit: You'll be probably using a JPopupMenu, and probably the show() method of this class to actually display the menu

This is a sample test using JPopup.. you can add the pannel.. and change item listener for your purpose.. But first , follow the link that suggested by others to determine and understand your purpose.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
