Context menu issues on touch devices

Post by Robert Hirst »

Currently context menus on mobile devices can be displayed using a long press.

However, interacting with the context menu once open does not appear to work on touch devices. Often the button press will not display at all, and when it does, it seems that the menu item action does not take place.

Once a long press has happened and the context menu is open, single tapping anywhere on the screen will instantly open the context menu for whatever object is tapped on.

This behaviour happens on all public examples on Chrome 74 in touch device simulation mode on Windows 10, and Chrome 74 on Android 9.

I believe that a more user friendly behaviour would be that single tapping anywhere except the context menu or the entity for which the context menu is displayed should simply dismiss the current context menu.
