Overview

The ContextMenu UI component displays a single- or multi-level context menu. An end user invokes this menu by a right click or a long press.

View Demo

The following code adds the ContextMenu UI component to your page and binds it to an image using the target property. Note that the data source of the UI component declares several nesting levels. Items in the resulting context menu mirror this structure.

var contextMenuItems = [
    { text: 'Zoom In' },

            text: 'Send to a friend',
            items: [
