RFE: Context Menu key should be supported to open PopupMenu through keyboard

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      windows_xp

      Description

      There is a context menu key available on the windows keyboard near the CTRL key on the right side. Pressing this key would bring up the popup menu for the component that has focus, in Swing and works the same way on other native applications as well. It would be good if this is supported on AWT since we do not currently have a way to bring up popup menu through keyboard in AWT. We do have 'F10' for menus. Supporting this key would make the AWT applications behave like native on Windows platform.

      Currently this key works only for TextArea/TextField where it brings up the copy/paste menu even If I have defined my own popup menu for these components.
