Show Context Menu over Shapes

The following example demonstrates how to show a Kendo UI ContextMenu when pressing the right button of the mouse over the Diagram shapes.

To achieve this behavior: 1. Initialize a Kendo UI ContextMenu setting its target as the ID of the Diagram and filter it by a g element. 2. Handle the open event of the ContextMenu. If the target is a connection, it is possible to cancel the event. If the target is a shape, it is possible to store the dataItem in a variable. 3. Handle the select event of the ContextMenu where you can perform a custom action based on the context of the shape.

Example

<ul id="menu">
<li>
    Reply
    <ul>
    <li> Reply to Sender</li>
    <li>Reply to All</li>
    </ul>
</li>
<li class="k-separator"></li>
<li>Forward</li>
</ul>
<div id="diagram"></div>
