Hi. I have a JMenuItem that gets added to a JMenu and I'd like to add a popup menu that gets displayed when I right-click on the menu item (and the underlying menu still stays visible), and when I left-click on the menu, it performs its normal action. Does anyone know how to do this?
I spent a little bit of time with this tonight. Couldn't get it perfect, but maybe this will get you started:

Hi Gregg. I appreciate the start on this code. I think some of that popup code will be useful, but I think I may need to create my own MenuUI. I was doing some digging to find out where the mouse events are processed and it appears to be in the BasicMenuUI. So, I think I have one of two options: either remove the mouse listeners from the menu that already exist and then add my own (but I think this might be a little risky since who knows what other mouse listeners are on the menu item) or create my own MenuUI.
I'm thinking this is not such a simple problem (while I do a lot of Swing programming, creating my own UI classes such as this is not something I do often). Thanks for the help.
