Besides True Launch Bar and LaunchBar Commander, are there any other applications which can display sub folders & files upon mouse over? Let's say my 'My Documents' folder has 10 sub folders (again, some of them have sub content) and 2 files, most of the free s/w (like LaunchOnFly) can't let you simply add 'My Documents' AND show its content dynamically upon a mouse over. You will have to manually add each folder/file that you want to the menu.

TLB implements this best but isn't free.
Virtual Folders
You can also create virtual folders on the True Launch Bar. When you create a virtual folder, you select the folder's content you want to see in the toolbar menu. It can be any folder on your disk or on a local network (Favorites, Programs, Recent, etc.); or you can add file system folders such as Printers, Control Panel, My Computer, Dialup Network or other similar folders. If you right-click on an item in the virtual folder, you can see a full context menu like in the Explorer window, and you can perform any action from this menu (Properties, Open, Delete...).

LBC doesn't yet have a context menu for the menu items.

So, any other software? Ideally I should be able to bring up the launch menu upon a keypress at the current cursor position.
