context-menu does not work

I have a table and one of the column’s content is CssLayout ( to add a String and a button). Normally (if this column content is just a string) my context-menu works just fine, but when I have CssLayout as column content and when I place mouse on THIS column and do a right click, instead of my context-menu appearing, browser right-click menu is appearing. On any other column right click does produce my context-menu.

Please suggest any solutions for this issue.

Here is the example code that demonstrate the issue.

package com.example.helloworld;
import com.vaadin.Application;
import com.vaadin.event.Action;
import com.vaadin.ui.Button;
import com.vaadin.ui.CssLayout;
import com.vaadin.ui.Label;
import com.vaadin.ui.Panel;
import com.vaadin.ui.Table;
import com.vaadin.ui.VerticalLayout;
import com.vaadin.ui.Window;

public class HelloworldApplication extends Application {
static final Action ACTION_MARK = new Action(“Mark”);
static final Action ACTION_UNMARK = new Action(“Unmark”);
static final Action ACTION_LOG = new Action(“Save”);
static final Action ACTIONS_UNMARKED = new Action
static final Action ACTIONS_MARKED = new Action

public void init() {
Window mainWindow = null;
mainWindow = new Window(“My Window”);

Panel mainPanel = new Panel();

/* Create the table with a caption. /
Table table = new Table(“This is my Table”);

  • The “default value” parameter is meaningless here. */
    table.addContainerProperty(“First Name”, String.class, null);
    table.addContainerProperty(“Last Name”, String.class, null);
    table.addContainerProperty(“Year”, Integer.class, null);
    table.addContainerProperty(“Description”, CssLayout.class, null);

CssLayout description1 = new CssLayout();
description1.addComponent(new Label(“Some one”));
description1.addComponent(new Button(“Very Special”));

CssLayout description2 = new CssLayout();
description2.addComponent(new Label(“Some one”));
description2.addComponent(new Button(“Very Special”));

CssLayout description3 = new CssLayout();
description3.addComponent(new Label(“Some one”));
description3.addComponent(new Button(“Very Special”));

CssLayout description4 = new CssLayout();
description4.addComponent(new Label(“Some one”));
description4.addComponent(new Button(“Very Special”));

CssLayout description5 = new CssLayout();
description5.addComponent(new Label(“Some one”));
description5.addComponent(new Button(“Very Special”));

CssLayout description6 = new CssLayout();
description6.addComponent(new Label(“Some one”));
description6.addComponent(new Button(“Very Special”));

/* Add a few items in the table. */
table.addItem(new Object {

// Actions (a.k.a context menu)
table.addActionHandler(new Action.Handler() {
