Hi,

I developed a webpage using asp.net 2008. I have used aps:menu to link other pages. The links are opened properly. But my problem is, when I right click on any link in the menu, "open in a new tab" and "open in a new window" options are disabled. How to enable this?  My code follows

 <asp:Menu ID="Menu3" runat="server" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Calibri"
            Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="#000099" Orientation="Horizontal"              
                style="position:absolute ;  z-index: 5; left: 750px; top: 5px;  height: 28px;
            width: 200px; text-align: center;">
            <StaticSelectedStyle Font-Underline="True" ForeColor="Black" />
            <StaticHoverStyle ForeColor="#FF0066"  Font-Bold="True" />
            <Items>
                <asp:MenuItem SeparatorImageUrl="~/images/MenuSplitBar.jpg" Text="Home"
                    Value="Home">
                </asp:MenuItem>
                <asp:MenuItem SeparatorImageUrl="~/images/MenuSplitBar.jpg" Text=" Enquiry"
                    Value=" Enquiry"  ></asp:MenuItem>
                <asp:MenuItem Text="Service Request"
                    Value="ServiceRequest"></asp:MenuItem>
            </Items>
        </asp:Menu>

I am using vb to write linksto the menu. the code as follows

 Protected Sub Menu3_MenuItemClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.MenuEventArgs) Handles Menu3.MenuItemClick
        Select Case e.Item.Value
            Case "Home"
                Response.Redirect("Default.aspx")
            Case " Enquiry"
                Response.Redirect("Enquiry.aspx")
            Case "ServiceRequest"
                Response.Redirect("ServiceRequest.aspx")
        End Select
    End Sub

Kindly help me to solve this problem.

Menu Control is a control, not a hyperlink.
So right clicking wont work for Menu.
You have use html type of hyperlink (like <a href..> in order to right click and open in new tab
