Action Script Mouse Events

I presume that because of the MAC background to Flash there is no support for right click event grabbing?

I have a flash application that I want to ideally capture left-click, right-click, left-double-click and right-double-click. What exactly is possible here?

you can capture left and right clicks of mouse, but you can't stop the menu from the right click - you can only tell when it has been pressed. I think like

if(Key.isDown(2))//right click
use this with a listener,

and a function that will tell you on its own
onMouseDown=function(){//left click


double clicks can be captured, but only through coding it using timer:
