Infragistics WebDataMenu: Expanding context menu UP

By , 07/21/2009 4:08 PM

Infragistics WebDataMenu is a light-weight highly responsive menu control with rich server and clinet side model. I was using it to display context menu on right mouse click.  The code is pretty simple:

function onMouseClick(oEvent) {
   if (oEvent.button == 2) { //right mouse button clicked
      var menu = $find("xwdmMyMenu");
      menu.showAt(null,null, oEvent);
   }
}

It checks whether the right mouse button was clicked (line 2) then locates the menu object and shows it using showAt method (which accepts 3 parameters, either X and Y client coordinates, or event object from which it derives coordinates of the mouse click).

 It’s all well and good, but the problem is – menu always shows down from the location of the mouse click. And if the click is at the bottom of the screen – menu gets cut off:

I needed to make menu expand UP and  couldn’t find a build-in property or method that would change this behaviour (GroupSettings.ExpandDirection property had no effect). Time for a little hack. Continue reading 'Infragistics WebDataMenu: Expanding context menu UP'»
