Hi to all,
i want to show a context menu on body element. But i don't want any element in body element.
I've coded it but context menu event doesn't fired.
I attached my code. But as i say i don't want any element in <body></body> tag like div table etc...
if i add it so the event raise already.
i use internet explorer 7... ff or others not important for me for this subject..

<body>
</body>
<script language="javascript">
document.body.oncontextmenu=function (){alert("test")};
</script>

It works when you put the script code inside the body tags.

Script code isn't an "object" after all, or is it?
<body>
<script language="javascript">
document.body.oncontextmenu=function (){alert("test")};
</script>
</body>

Your example doesn't seem to work for me.

Below code worked in FF and IE. Not sure about Opera as it has right click override disabled.
<script language="javascript">
document.oncontextmenu=new Function("alert('test'); return false");
</script>

I tested within Homesite+ which uses the IE dlls for preview.

However, since I never use IE for browsing, only the default IE 6 is installed. Sorry, didn't realize it explicitly had to work in IE 7.
