    oncontextmenu window.event = null


    I am trying to create a custom right-click menu in javascript, and I can't get the coordinates of the mouse when using oncontextmenu in IE7. I have it working fine in firefox, but in IE the window.event comes back as null.

    Code:
    checkbox.oncontextmenu = function(event) {
        if (event == null)
            event = window.event;
        
        alert("event: "+event);
        alert("window.event: "+window.event);
    
        /* Handle right-click */
    };
    I understand that IE does not pass along the event, but is there any reason why both of my alerts (specifically window.event) print null?
