Custom Items

To add a custom context menu item, specify its text and optional settings (for example, a file extension for a newly created file). Use the contextMenuItemClick event to handle clicks on custom context menu items.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#file-manager").dxFileManager({
        contextMenu: {
            items: [
                {
                    text: "Create new file", 
                    icon: "plus",
                    items: [
                        {
                            text: "Plain text document",
                            extension: ".txt",
                            onClick: onItemClick
                        },
                        // ...
                    ]
                },
                // ...
                "move", "copy", "delete", "refresh" // default items
            ]
