The fscommand handler is really only for fscommands. If you call it from
the plugin, the gui will ignore it. Also, there is an rcfile directive
to ignore all fscommands, which shouldn't apply to Stage.showMenu. The
event should be sent to the interface handler (like instead.

And what happens when you test it? The menu bar isn't an issue for the
plugin, so if the fscommand and the Stage.showMenu command have the same
effect on the popup menu, it should be possible to use the same gui
functions for both.

I would suggest adding an rcfile option to ignore all menu hiding from
actionscript. The ContextMenu class also has a way for AS to control
what appears on the built-in menu, and it seems logical to use the same
rcfile option to decide whether to allow that as well.

Using the same for both seems like the best idea. Bear in mind that the
gui knows whether it's running as a plugin or not, so you can easily
handle small differences in behaviour.


Use Gnash, the GNU Flash Player!
