How can I trigger some action with right click after disabling the browser context menu ?

I tried this . . .

$(document).ready(function(){
    $(document).bind("contextmenu",function(e){
        $('.alert').fadeToggle();
        return false;
    });
});

Solution 1

There is no built-in oncontextmenu event handler in jQuery, but you can do something like this:

$(document).ready(function(){ 
  document.oncontextmenu = function() {return false;};

  $(document).mousedown(function(e){ 
    if( e.button == 2 ) { 
      alert('Right mouse button!'); 
      return false; 
    } 
    return true; 
  }); 
});

Basically I cancel the oncontextmenu event of the DOM element to disable the browser context menu, and then I capture the mousedown event with jQuery, and there you can know in the event argument which button has been pressed.

You can try the above example here.

The function returns too early. I've added a comment to the code below:

$(document).ready(function(){
    $(document).bind("contextmenu",function(e){
        return false;
        $('.alert').fadeToggle(); // this line never gets called
    });
});

Try swapping the return false; with the next line.

Just use the event-handler. Something like this should work:

$('.js-my-element').bind('contextmenu', function(e) {
     e.preventDefault();
     alert('The eventhandler will make sure, that the contextmenu dosn't appear.');
});

I found this answer here and I'm using it like this.

Code from my Library:

$.fn.customContextMenu = function(callBack){
    $(this).each(function(){
        $(this).bind("contextmenu",function(e){
             e.preventDefault();
             callBack();
        });
    }); 
}

Code from my page's script:

$("#newmagazine").customContextMenu(function(){
    alert("some code");
});

Solution 5

document.oncontextmenu = function() {return false;}; //disable the browser context menu
$('selector-name')[0].oncontextmenu = function(){} //set jquery element context menu 

Solution 6

Is contextmenu an event?

I would use onmousedown or onclick then grab the MouseEvent's button property to determine which button was pressed (0 = left, 1 = middle, 2 = right).

Solution 7

To disable right click context menu on all images of a page simply do this with following:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
    // Disable context menu on images by right clicking
    for(i=0;i<document.images.length;i++) {
        document.images[i].onmousedown = protect;
    }
});

function protect (e) {
    //alert('Right mouse button not allowed!');
    this.oncontextmenu = function() {return false;};
}

.contextmenu method :-

Try as follows

<div id="wrap">Right click</div>

<script>
$('#wrap').contextmenu(function() {
  alert("Right click");
});
</script>

.mousedown method:-

$('#wrap').mousedown(function(event) {

        if(event.which == 3){
            alert('Right Mouse button pressed.');
        }  
});
