Manually adding context menu to subfile

Post by Dino » 01 Jun 2019, 11:14


Sometimes an screen with a subfile have more options that I want to include in the context menu of a subfile options column, than the ones displayed on top.

How can I add a "context menu" like the default one used by aXes, instead of adding a "dropdown" or a "quick pick menu" to the option column? Is that an extension? Cant find which extension works like that.

Thank you

Hi Dino

Using the subfile enhancer does a really good job of creating a context menu of the items on the screen.

It doesn't however let you add extra items.

An involved hack would require you to write some javascript to grab the context menu which is a static element: div id="boxmenu"; add an li element into the ul list and associate a click event to that new element.
