    I'm using using the appbuilder extension for Visual studio to launch my app in the device simulator.  You can right click an inspect element just as you would a browser.. It's great...  except when you right click on links...It will fire the click event and send you to the new page.  It is a pain especially sense we have large clickable regions of html... I'm having to inspect out side of the clickable region and then dig into where i was originally wanting to inspect.  This is very annoying.

    Is there any way around this.

    Hi Ray,

    I think you have a point that we should use only the left click in order to fire an event and the right click for exposing the context menu.

    I am not sure about your case and how you reproduce this behavior because it does not happen with standard HTML anchor <a> tag so I used Kendo Tabstrip widget. Indeed if I try to inspect the tabstrip button it launches a click event and a new view is loaded.

    I logged this case in our product backlog for further consideration.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
