Umm...Nevermind.  I realized that I need to add offsetX/Y to window.screenLeft/Top to get the actual cursor location.

I am trying to create a custom context menu for an IE-only intranet application.  I am using the popup object (window.createPopup).  The problem I'm having is that it doesn't open relative to my cursor position. My show popup function looks like this:

function showPopup(){
  var oX = event.offsetX;
  var oY = event.offsetY;
  oPopup.show(oX, oY, 165, 250, window.location);

I can adjust it so that the menu opens where I want,but if I move the browser window the locations get all screwed up. In the microsoft examples, they set the parent or 5th parameter to a div or a form field.I am using window.location, but that's not working.

Any advice is appreciated.
