Popup on right AND left clic

In LabVIEW we have the popup menu on right click. But from time to time, would be nice to have the same functionality on the left click. This would create more interactive interfaces.

Example: When using 'ring', it helps to have menus and submenus.

Example: For tables, it helps to have a list by clicking in a cell.
