  new HashTableForPopupMenu().setVisible(true);
  }

  public HashTableForPopupMenu(){
  MenuBar mb = new MenuBar();

  Menu m = new Menu("File");
  mb.add(m);
  MenuItem item = new MenuItem("First Menu");
  item.addActionListener(this);
  m.add(item);
  item = new MenuItem("Second Menu");
  m.add(item);
  item.addActionListener(this);
  setSize(400400);
  setLayout(new BorderLayout());
  Label l = new Label("label");
  addPopup(l, "label");
  add(l, "North");
  Panel p = new Panel();
  addPopup(p, "Panel");
  add(p, "Center");
  Button b = new Button("button");
  b.addActionListener(this);
  addPopup(b, "button");
  add(b, "South");
  setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
  }

  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog
(
null,"This simple Action Event.\nSource=" + e.getSource());
  }

  public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e){
  mouseAction("mouseClicked", e);
  }

  public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e){}
  public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e){}
  
  public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e){
  mouseAction("mousePressed", e);
  }

  public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent e){
  mouseAction("mouseReleased", e);
  }

  void mouseAction(String which, MouseEvent e){
  Component c = e.getComponent();
  if(e.isPopupTrigger()){
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Right Click");
  PopupMenu pm = getHash(c);
  pm.show(c, c.getSize().width/2, c.getSize().height/2);
  }
  }
  
  void addPopup(Component c, String name){
  PopupMenu pm = new PopupMenu();
  MenuItem mi = new MenuItem(name + "-1");
  mi.addActionListener(this);
  pm.add(mi);
  mi = new MenuItem(name + "-2");
  mi.addActionListener(this);
  pm.add(mi);
  setHash(c, pm);
  c.add(pm);
  c.addMouseListener(this);
  }
  
  Hashtable<Component,PopupMenu> popupTable = 
new 
Hashtable<Component,PopupMenu>();
  void setHash(Component c, PopupMenu p){
  popupTable.put(c, p);
  }
  
  PopupMenu getHash(Component c){
  return (PopupMenu)(popupTable.get(c));
  }
