    For Wijmo Menu when an item is selected, how can I access the original event that triggered the action?
    When I use the itemClicked event https://www.grapecity.com/wijmo/api/classes/wijmo_input.menu.html#itemclicked
    the second parameter ev:EventArgs does not hold any useful information.

    I need to know if Ctrl, Shift or Alt where pressed when a menu item was selected.

    Hi Andreas,

    You can handle the mousedown event of the dropDown element of Menu. This mousedown event can provide the current data:

    I have also forwarded a feature request to the developers to update the itemClicked event so that it provides the mouse event as the event data. The internal tracking id of the case is WJM-19645.

    Regards,

    Thanks! Using the mousedown from the dropDown worked nicely!
