The jQuery contextMenu plugin that allows you to bind a dynamic right-click context menu with custom actions to any DOM elements. A great alternative to the native browser context menu.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery contextMenu plugin's files on the webpage which has jQuery library included.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="contextMenu.min.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="contextMenu.min.js"></script>

2. Define your own menu items and action functions in the JavaScript as this:

var data = [
    [{
      text: "Cut (ctrl+x)",
      action: function () {
        console.log("Cut");
      }
    },
    {
      text: "Copy(ctrl+c)"
    },
    {
      text: "Paste(ctrl+v)",
      action: function () {
        console.log("Paste");
      }
    }],
    [{
      text: "Bold (ctrl+b)"
    },
    {
      text: "Underline(ctrl+u)"
    }]
];

3. Bind the context menu to a specific container.

$("#container").contextMenu(data);

4. Possible plugin options and callback functions.

$("#container").contextMenu(data,{

  // menu name
  name: "", 

  // x/y offsets in pixels
  offsetX: 15,
  offsetY: 5,

  // callbacks
  beforeShow: $.noop,
  afterShow: $.noop
  
});
