I want to display readable data on the screen and allow edit but using specific values/options. Using multi combo box’s makes the screen look messy. I have tried to change them to Labels with a Right Click Menu, thats a pain for Mac users, Left click is preferred for this. Does anyone have any idea’s on how best to achieve this?
Thanks in advance
why do you consider a “right click” a “pain”…
to change to specific known values, why don’t you use popup menus instead of comboboxes ?
@Dave S - Right Click is only a pain for on mac you have to use two fingers on the trackpad but for ease and efficiency Left Click is what I need.
@Jean-Yves Pochez , we’ve used labels to show the data and setup popup/contextual menus for the edit values for each label , but in order to display the menus the user has to “right-click”.
don’t put a label+contextual menu : you need to right-clic to use it !
if you use a “popup menu” (alone look in the library no label necessary) then you will left-clic to use it !
a popup menu is not a contextual menu …
Thats all great. Can I have a popup menu without the arrows on it? If not whats best to do.
we have a screen of about 10 items and having them all as popups seams to make it messy.
Thank you for your help.
then you can also make a Label as you did, but instead of using the constructcontextualmenu event, you can use the mousedown event, and there make a menuitem with the lines you need, and present it to the user using the menuitem.popup method.

This article is wrong. Used Apples Magic Mouse 1 and 2 i can tell you both supprt the Right-Click out of the box…
Today a Right-Click is also on a Mac…nothing special.
