I have item1, item2 and popupmenu set up. When I click item1 with left mouse button, the focus goes to item1. Then I click item2 with right mouse button and the popup menu shows up, but the focus doesn't change to item2, so when I do :system.mouse_item, :system.current_item, :system.cursor_item ... or anything I tried so far, I always get the properties of item1. How can I get properties of item2 when clicking right mouse button over item2? ( or how to change focus to item2 with right mouse button? )
Forms are 10g

You could create the PRE-POPUP-MENU trigger on ITEM2 and then do:

-- This variable should contain the name of your ITEM2
message(':SYSTEM.MOUSE_ITEM = ' || :SYSTEM.MOUSE_ITEM);pause;

I think that in this trigger you can get your properties of ITEM2.

Thanks, but there is still the focused item ( item1 ) under :system.mouse_item. But I think I found the solution ( well, not me, I got this from a workmate ). I need to execute synchronize under PRE-POPUP-MENU and then under :system.mouse_item should always be the proper item which is under the mouse. I do not fully understand those trigger dependencies under Forms yet.
