Why do you have to make a hidden button and force the popup display in a
mousedown handler? A regular popup should work just fine. What problems
are you having with it?

When I make a normal popup button, the button doesn't 'appear' as a
button (except that the name is visible by default) so I don't understand
what the user is seeing. But the things you can do to make sure a button
won't be seen (but is still "visible") are to set the following
I made a button like this under Windows (I didn't test in as a
standalone) and the popup shows up (I set menuMouseButton to 0 or 3--both
worked) without the button being "visible".
See if this helps. If I'm completely missing your point, try to provide a
little more detail as to what the problem is.
