I'm currently designing an app and I have a label that should have two actions: 1. Right Click (1st Action) opens a popover with more details on the part (Gear Box) like the number of parts that make up the Gear Box. Right click (2nd action) drills down deeper into the part (Parts that make up the Gearbox). From a UX perspective, is this the best approach or is there a better solution? I'm not sure how to best solve this problem. Thanks Screenshot of button

  • Just to clarify, do you use the right-click for both actions?

  • Can you describe the situation in more detail, perhaps with some (more) images and some background information? It is a bit unclear what you try to achieve and why.

There doesn't seem to be any reason to use a pop-up menu for this, if you already have a label in place which marks the object that a user can interact with. It would be easier to simply use the normal left click interaction to bring up a menu. A right click pop-up is typically used for general purpose functions that apply to many places in an application.

Also, there is no reason to use a second right click when there are also standard navigation patterns for pop-up menus to bring up more information, such as the one used in Material Design 3.
