Flash An old dream, the end of the context menu?

    Remember how we used to dream of disabling the context menu within the browser, with the once hated About Macromedia / Adobe FlashPlayer. It was a long time ago and everyone has long been reconciled to fate, fortunately, at that time the ContextMenu class appeared, which at the time restrained the righteous anger of the flashers.

    But we needed to remove this menu altogether. Some will say, why do I need to turn off the context menu for swf movies? There are a number of reasons for this:

    GamesThe industry of Flash games is quite extensive, and here we have in mind non-executable applications, where killing a menu takes a couple of lines of code, namely killing a context menu within a browser. In many games, the right click is used quite actively and developers of flash games with reluctance refused this opportunity.

    User experience- yes, if you have a remote control for two buttons - this is better than using one left. Who knows, maybe after some time I’ll come up with a unique interface where all the mouse buttons will be used at all.

    RIA - there are no comments at all. We need the right mouse button!

    And now, we can say YES to our context menu in our AS3 and Flex applications. Someone Paulius Uza , created a test right-click script and asks the world community for help. We will test his script on all kinds of browsers and operating systems, as soon we will probably have another opportunity and more extensive freedom of action in the development of our own applications.
