    Not able to open a context menu for an application in android

    I wanted to make some modifications for a specific item on the screen. For that i tried to open the context menu by tapping and holding the item on the screen. But nothing is happening or popping up. Is that because the item does not support the context menu or are there any problems with my android handset. Please explain in detail if possible.

    Re: Not able to open a context menu for an application in android

    Hi,
    The contextual menu in application are brought to the application by means of coding the menu contents in the programming code architecture. SO it is not possible to edit the contextual menu of the android application. If you want the menu to be edited and then if you have any knowledge on linux coding and use of eclipse you can unpack the Application file and then you can you can edit the internal structure to suit your needs.
    Hope this Helps.

    The users cant edit the Context Menu and it is designed with correlated to the data available with the OS, you need to have wide knowledge of how the Linux or other stuffs related to Android programming in order to work on this issue.

    If you want this thing badly then get help from some android programming Expert. All the Best.

    Context menu in an application is provided by the programmer of the application..
    you can not edit your way in context menu..

    If the application is not showing the context menu then it is probably due to the reason that the programmer/creator of the application didn't bother to provide a menu..
    although you can edit it if you have detailed knowledge of the Android development..
    then also its not an easy task to understand someone else's coding style..
    let alone modify it..
