Hi -
I am using .live to add an event click handler but I would also like the user to be able to right click and open in new window option. So if they just click it uses ajax callback but if they right right and open in new tab it will do a full postback to a new page.

Is this possible?

Thanks

jQuery have normalised event.which for all browsers...

$('#element').mousedown(function(event) {
    switch (event.which) {
        case 1:
            alert('Left mouse button pressed');
            break;
        case 2:
            alert('Middle mouse button pressed');
            break;
        case 3:
            alert('Right mouse button pressed');
            break;
        default:
            alert('You have a strange mouse');
    }
});
