Interesting JPop-up menu Problem

Hi Ranchers,

I have a JPop-up Menu which pops up on right-click; everything works alright with the menu;

Pop-up menu shows up until I select a menu item or I click on some other component.

Now the problem area is:

1> My menu is dynamically generated; I mean to say the data can change due to external factors too.. and b'coz of JPop-up menu perisistence ...user may click a undesirable menu-item.

2> Is there a way I could make the pop-ip invisble as soon as the user clicks outside the application (This is not happening)

Please advice; any workarounds; can I do something at Mouseadapater level itself?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
