O7: Detecting #RMOUSEDOWN in enterable table object

Howdy, Listers,


I am attempting to do something I've never tried before with Omnis7v3: I
have an enterable and auto-extendable table object on a window, with both
entry and display-only fields on each line. I want to pop up a context menu
over the table whenever the user right-clicks on the table object. Trouble
is, I cannot get #RMOUSEDOWN to fire, not at any level of the event loop.


I have searched the list archives and seen a few solutions to this (and yes,
I do have $mouseevents turned on :-), but none of these posts mention
whether or not the table objects in question are $enterable and/or
$extendable. (I'm guessing they were not.)  But if anyone out there knows
how to make this particular GUI mechanism work, I'd really appreciate it!


Thanks and cheers,
