I'm trying avoid using extra plugins and only use JQuery UI Menu for table row popups triggered on right click. Also the table may have thousands of rows. Is there a way to do this with just the new Menu control that is built into JQuery UI? Any recommendations?
That works but it doesn't scale well It looks like JQuery Menu is not that flexible for large tables where you just want to define a list of generic actions to operate on the selected row data.
I ended up using the contextMenu plugin. It works good but I wish JQuery UI could standardize some of the common user interface components. One good implementation for a menu component could be used for menubars, context menus, etc...
Can you provide an example? The jsfiddle example is building a menu but it doesn't look that dynamic. If the actions for the context menu are things like "Details","Edit","Delete","Copy", etc..., then I really just need to create one menu and bind it to every row for rightclick. Then when the action is selected, the data is retrieved from the selected row. That seems to be how contextMenu plugin works but for JQuery Menu, it looks more static... how do you associate a specific menu action with the row that triggered the popup?
