Multi-Level Right-Click (Context) Menu with jQuery and Bootstrap - ContextJS

ContextJS is a lightweitht jQuery plugin that makes it easy to create multi-level right mouse-click (context) menu with event based links support.

ContextJS comes with 2 versions of stylesheets to build your context menu.

  • context.bootstrap.css - which works with twitter's bootstrap. 
  • context.standalone.css - which allows to give the context menu it's base styles.

Basic Usage:

1. Load the latest jQuery javascript library and jQuery ContextJS plugin at the bottom of your page

<script src=""></script>
<script src="context.js"></script> 

2. Include required jQuery ContextJS stylesheet in the head section of your page

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="context.standalone.css">

3. Create the context menu in the javascript


context.init({preventDoubleContext: false});

context.settings({compress: true});

context.attach('html', [
{header: 'Compressed Menu'},
{text: 'Back', href: '#'},
{text: 'Reload', href: '#'},
{divider: true},
{text: 'Save As', href: '#'},
{text: 'Print', href: '#'},
{text: 'View Page Source', href: '#'},
{text: 'View Page Info', href: '#'},
{divider: true},
{text: 'Inspect Element', href: '#'},
{divider: true},
{text: 'Disable This Menu', action: function(e){
alert('html contextual menu destroyed!');
{text: 'Donate', action: function(e){


4. Settings

fadeSpeed: 100, // The speed in which the context menu fades in (in milliseconds)
filter: function ($obj){}, // Function that each finished list element will pass through for extra modification.
above: 'auto', // If set to 'auto', menu will appear as a "dropup" if there is not enough room below it. Settings to true will make the menu a "popup" by default.
preventDoubleContext: true, // If set to true, browser-based context menus will not work on contextjs menus.
compress: false // If set to true, context menus will have less padding, making them (hopefully) more unobtrusive
