Simple Flexible Context Menu Plugin with jQuery - jqCtxMenu

jqCtxMenu is a lightweight jQuery plugin used to create a flexible multi-level right click context menu within any Html containers.

How to use it:

1. Load jQuery library together with jqctxmenu.css and jqctxmenu.js in your document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jqctxmenu.css">

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="scripts/jqctxmenu.js"></script>

2. Create a DIV element where you want to pop up a context menu when right click on.

<div id="active-area"></div>

3. Call the plugin on the DIV element you just created and build your menu structure using JavaScript array object as shown below.

$(function() {
"use strict";

  name: "Option 1", // menu name
  action: function() { console.log("Option 1"); }
    }, {
  name: "Option 2",
  icon: "img/icon.png", // icon path
  group: true, // set to false to display a divider
  menu: [{ // sub menu
    name: "Sub opt 1",
    location: "http://#"
  }, {
    name: "Sub opt 2",
    menu: [{
      name: "Sub sub opt 1",
      icon: "img/icon.png",
      action: function() { console.log("Last option"); }
  }, {
  name: "Option 3",
  group: true,
  action: function() { console.log("Option 3"); }
    }, {
  name: "Option 4",
  icon: "img/icon.png",
  action: function() { console.log("Option 4"); }
    }, {
  name: "Option 5",
  action: function() { console.log("Option 5"); }
