{note} vue-context has been archived and is no longer maintained. Use caution when installing in your apps.



vue-context can be installed via npm:

npm i vue-context


Import the component and use it in your app.

import Vue from 'vue';
import VueContext from 'vue-context';

new Vue({
    components: {

    methods: {
        onClick(text) {
            alert(`You clicked ${text}!`);

For styling, you will need to import the component's styles into your own stylesheets, or into your JavaScript. It's recommended to import into a stylesheet, however. If you are using sass, you can do the following:

@import '~vue-context/src/sass/vue-context';

// Or
// @import '~vue-context/dist/css/vue-context.css';

Now add an element to the page that will trigger the context menu to appear, and also add the context menu to the page.

<div id="app">

        <p @contextmenu.prevent="$refs.menu.open">
            Right click on me

    <vue-context ref="menu">
            <a @click.prevent="onClick($event.target.innerText)">Option 1</a>
            <a @click.prevent="onClick($event.target.innerText)">Option 2</a>


@contextmenu.prevent is the event listener needed to open the context menu. It is using .prevent as a modifier to prevent the default behavior. In this example, the context menu has a ref of menu, which is what $refs.menu is referring to. When each item is clicked on, the text of the item is sent to the onClick method on the Vue instance, which is then shown via an alert.

{tip} The context menu defaults to a <ul> tag. For best results, make each menu item an <a> tag wrapped inside of an <li> tag.
