This issue is probably caused by the fact that treetable views cannot 
be focused while empty. I can display the context menu by right-
clicking with mouse but pressing Shift-F10 has no effect. Assigning 
to openide for evaluation.

Adding to the collection of ttv issues
Comment 3 _ tboudreau 2004-01-09 13:34:34 UTC
Milan, what is this fix-in-36 keyword you just added (and I just deleted)?

I have no plans to do further small fixes in the current TreeTableView
- there are plans to rewrite it from scratch (it is a total mess),
hopefully for Promo-D (this is up to my management), but not for 3.6.  

Convince me this particular issue (as opposed to about 50 others, some
of them much higher impact) needs to be fixed for 3.6.  Most fixes in
TreeTableView create new bugs, and other issues relating to it are
postponed to the rewrite.  If a bug is not causing a stack trace to
pop up, IMO it is not worth fixing against the current TTV codebase.

To get a sense of the magnitude of problems with TTV, see
Comment 4 Milan Kubec 2004-01-09 15:08:33 UTC
A11Y issues are important for being compliant with some law or
something (maybe you know beter), so I added this issue to list of
those, what would be good to fix in upcomming release.
Comment 5 _ tboudreau 2004-01-09 17:34:52 UTC
Okay, I just didn't like that someone seemed to be deciding what I was
going to fix without asking me :-)

Seriously, I want to avoid touching TTV unless something's pretty
severe.  Any changes now will just get thrown away later.

when no node is selected, the popup menu is populated with actions
from the root node
