Context Menus in AS3

I just came across a little article/tutorial that I would like to bring my readers’ attention to. It is something that I have always thought would be a very useful addition to Flash pages but is extremely under used. What I am talking about are customized context menus. These are the menus that appear when you right click.

With actionscript you are able to customize these menus and add a little extra interactivity to your pages. Even though most people don’t right click on anything, some people do. To have something there for them to find and use could prove to be useful. It could be anything… credits, navigation, easter eggs, helpers, etc.

Context menus take very little time and effort to add, and show that you are paying a little bit extra attention to detail when creating a site / application.

here is a quick and easy guide to using AS3 Context Menus > http://www.emanueleferonato.com/2009/03/11/understanding-as3-context-menus/

thanks, marc
