Right click or Context Menu in ruby without javascript

Hi,
This query is a replica of the link
http://railsforum.com/viewtopic.php?id=51231.

As I was unable to get any replies from the rails forum, I am posting
the same here.

I have developed an app using Rails 3. I have a table made to look

like a calendar. I wanted to know if there were any methods or gems to
acheive right click(context menu) action on the dates WITHOUT
javascripts or jQuery. Please note, I am developing this on Rails 3.

That has nothing to do with rails. Also I dont believe it would be
possible
without Javascript in general.

It can also be done with html5 I believe, if the user is using an
html5 compliant browser.

Thank you Colin for your reply. HTML 5 is my last resort. I am afraid it
may reduce the scope of number of users. I was wondering if I can get
the right click handler of the browser. So that, it would solve my
problem.

Note that the HTML5 part of that only gets you the menu - actually
doing
anything when things are selected from the menu is only possible with
JS.

I referred David Walsh website for the
same(http://davidwalsh.name/html5-context-menu). Is there a way to
remove the system generated right click options?

You could trap them in JavaScript and return event.preventDefault() to
stop the normal response from happening.

Have a google for the right way to trap a right-click – it’s very
popular in anti-piracy scripts.
