Disabling stylus popup menus in AVKON lists

This document describes how to disable stylus popup menus in AVKON lists.


In some views, stylus popup menus must not be displayed with a long tap. For example, when a view has both a stylus popup menu and a context sensitive menu with the same commands.

If the context sensitive menu is required to remain, the stylus popup menu must be disabled. This way the item-specific commands are available only in the context sensitive menu, which is launched with both single and long tap.


  • You can disable the stylus popup menu in either of the following ways:

      Dynamically during construction.

      iListBox->ConstructL(this, EAknListBoxItemSpecificMenuDisabled);


      In the list box resource

        flags = EAknListBoxItemSpecificMenuDisabled;
        height = 3;
        width = 3;
