DevExtreme Gantt - Predefined Context Menu Items

Custom Items

To add a custom context menu item, specify its text and optional settings (for example, name or category). Use the customCommand event to handle clicks on custom context menu items.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#gantt").dxGantt({
        contextMenu: {
            items: [

                        {
                            text: "Item 1",
