3 Demos of jQuery Context / right click Menu plug-in

What is the contextMenu?

The contextMenu is a lightweight solution for creating the contextual menus in your web pages. The contextMenu will display as a user right clicks on a DOM element.

You may associate this context menu plug-in with different elements in DOM like a div, form, table etc. You may easily customize the look and feel of the context menu by using simple CSS.

How to set up this plug-in on your website?

First of all, download the plug-in from the above links. Get the contextMenu.min.css file and refer it in the <head> section:

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”css/contextMenu/contextMenu.min.css”>

The context menu uses the font awesome icons, so include its CSS reference as well:

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”//cdn.bootcss.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css”>

Under the <body> tag, include the jQuery and contextMenu.min.js files:

  <script src=”//cdn.bootcss.com/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js”></script>

<script src=”js/contextMenu/contextMenu.min.js”></script>

As you right click in the table, the context menu will appear with four menu items i.e.

  • Add row
  • Remove Row
  • Edit Data
  • Hide Row

The arbitrary font awesome icons are used that you will replace in accordance with the action to be performed for your project. Have a look:
