Simple context-menu component built for Vue


Simple context-menu component built for Vue. Works well with both left and right clicks. Nothing too fancy, just works and is simple to use.


# npm
npm i vue-simple-context-menu

yarn add vue-simple-context-menu

Or you can include it through the browser at the bottom of your page:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue-simple-context-menu"></script>


Just a simple little menu to be shown where a click happens - closes after use automatically by clicking an option or outside of the menu.

Usage Example

import VueSimpleContextMenu from 'vue-simple-context-menu'
Vue.component('vue-simple-context-menu', VueSimpleContextMenu)
<!-- This is a basic use case where you have an array of items that you want
to allow to be clicked. In this case, `items` is an array of objects.
Each item has a click event that ties to a function. See the demo for a full example. -->

<div class="item-wrapper">
    <div v-for="item in items" @click.prevent.stop="handleClick($event, item)" class="item-wrapper__item">

<!-- Make sure you add the `ref` attribute, as that is what gives you the ability
to open the menu. -->


<!-- The click-handler function -->
handleClick (event, item) {
    this.$refs.vueSimpleContextMenu.showMenu(event, item)

<!-- And for capturing the event -->
optionClicked (event) {

Note - you must pass the click event-info variable to the showMenu() function because that's how we know where to show the menu.

Note - make sure to use @click.prevent.stop or @contextmenu.prevent.stop for right click) when setting up the click handler.
