In today's tutorial we're going to create a clean multi-level right-lick vertical menu using jQuery and CSS.

How to use it:

1. Markup

<div id="rightclickarea">Right click inside bordered container</div>

<div class="vmenu">
<div class="first_li"><span>Open</span></div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Open in new tab</span></div>
<div class="sep_li"></div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Quick Preview</span>
<div class="inner_li"> <span>Dossier</span> <span>Channel 1</span> <span>Channel 2</span> </div>
</div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Preview</span>
<div class="inner_li"> <span>Channel 1</span> <span>Channel 2 </span> </div>
</div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Edit</span></div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Event Log</span></div>
<div class="sep_li"></div>
<div class="first_li"><span>New</span></div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Assignments</span>
<div class="inner_li"> <span>Assignement 1</span> <span>Assignement 2</span> </div>
</div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Assets</span>
<div class="inner_li"> <span>Asset 1</span> <span>Asset 2</span> <span>All Assets</span> </div>
</div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Preview</span></div>
<div class="sep_li"></div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Move to</span>
<div class="inner_li"> <span>Folder name</span> </div>
</div>
<div class="first_li"><span>Others</span>
<div class="inner_li"> <span>Mark as Read</span> <span>Mark as Unread</span> <span>Trash</span> <span>Archieve</span> <span>Commite</span> <span>Release</span> </div>
</div>
</div>

2. Include jQuery library

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script> 

3. Javscript

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
	
	$('#rightclickarea').bind('contextmenu',function(e){
	var $cmenu = $(this).next();
	$('<div class="overlay"></div>').css({left : '0px', top : '0px',position: 'absolute', width: '100%', height: '100%', zIndex: '100' }).click(function() {
	$(this).remove();
	$cmenu.hide();
	}).bind('contextmenu' , function(){return false;}).appendTo(document.body);
	$(this).next().css({ left: e.pageX, top: e.pageY, zIndex: '101' }).show();

	return false;
	 });

	 $('.vmenu .first_li').live('click',function() {
	if( $(this).children().size() == 1 ) {
	alert($(this).children().text());
	$('.vmenu').hide();
	$('.overlay').hide();
	}
	 });

	 $('.vmenu .inner_li span').live('click',function() {
	alert($(this).text());
	$('.vmenu').hide();
	$('.overlay').hide();
	 });

	
	$(".first_li , .sec_li, .inner_li span").hover(function () {
	$(this).css({backgroundColor : '#E0EDFE' , cursor : 'pointer'});
	if ( $(this).children().size() >0 )
	$(this).find('.inner_li').show();	
	$(this).css({cursor : 'default'});
	}, 
	function () {
	$(this).css('background-color' , '#fff' );
	$(this).find('.inner_li').hide();
	});
	

});
</script>

4. Style the menu

#rightclickarea {
padding: 50px 0;
width: 620px;
text-align: center;
border: 1px solid #ccc;
margin-top: 10px;
}
.vmenu {
border: 1px solid #aaa;
position: absolute;
background: #fff;
display: none;
font-size: 0.75em;
}
.first_li {
}
.first_li span {
width: 100px;
display: block;
padding: 5px 10px;
cursor: pointer
}
.inner_li {
display: none;
margin-left: 120px;
position: absolute;
border: 1px solid #aaa;
border-left: 1px solid #ccc;
margin-top: -28px;
background: #fff;
}
.sep_li {
border-top: 1px ridge #aaa;
margin: 5px 0
}
.fill_title {
font-size: 11px;
font-weight: bold;
/height:15px;
/overflow:hidden;
word-wrap: break-word;
}
