In this post Gill Cleeren demonstrates one new feature added in Silverlight 4 - the ability to react to right-clicks in a Silverlight application.

Because Silverlight now supports right-clicking, we can create a context menu that appears on the right-click event. We can code this context menu as we want. Right-clicking is supported on any UIElement: on the UIElement class, there are two new events added, namely the MouseRightButtonDown and the MouseRightButtonUp. Both of these new events use MouseButtonEventArgs as their event arguments, which are also used for the normal left click events.
