    Default contextMenuEvent clashing


    I am sub classing QGraphicsView & QGraphicsItem.

    I do have a contextMenuEvent in both of them. How ever while right clicking on item creates the menu of view. It's not creating the menu defined in item.

    If I disable the menu of view, item's menu is working fine.

    How do I ignore this clashing?

    Here is code of Item's contextMenuEvent
    Qt Code:
    1. def contextMenuEvent(self, event):
    2. menu = QtGui.QMenu()
    3. menu.addAction("Copy")
    4. menu.addAction("Paste")
    5. menu.exec_(event.screenPos())
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Code of view's contextMenuEvent
    Qt Code:
    1. menu = .....
    2. .....
    3. menu.exec_(event.globalPos())
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Call the base class implementation of the method in the view.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
