Handle right click event on tree.

Hello, I currently have a tree which fires onSelect when its items left clicked. However, I also want to make it so that when the items are right clicked, a separate function is fired.

This is the XML layout of my tree:

    items="{path: 'data>/elements'}">

I have tried following this fiddle( and adding a right click by placing

$('#myTree").on('contextmenu', function(){
    alert('you right clicked! congrats.');
    return false;

inside of the controller's onInit but it never gets called.

How do I create a right click even for the tree?

    Hi Betty,

    Add the following code in the onInit function:

    var oTree = this.byId("myTree");

    oTree.attachBrowserEvent("contextmenu", function(event){

    alert("right clicked");
