Ciao Raffaele, Yes, even to me the proposed change (to mouseDown() ) makes sense, but this part of the issue is by design (and after we have to test each Pivot component to see if it works in the same way).
I've just tried what happens in Linux (for example in GNome, under Ubuntu 10.x):
selections inside table/list/trees are handled even with right click, and where there is a context menu (related to the selected element), it's opened.
At this point the only thing that I think we could do on right click on selections (to mouseDown() ) is to see if the current situation is working even for Raffaele (for example to work like in Ubuntu), or maybe think to add a style where we could eneble/disable selection on right click ... from an usability point of view this could be a little but useful feature I think.
Greg, Chris, and others, comments ?
