16 Mar 20234 minutes to read

The context menu can be customized using the contextMenuSettings, menuOpen, and menuClick events.

The following example shows adding a custom item in the context menu.

The contextMenuSettings is used to add new menu item. The menuOpen event is used to add the icon to the new menu item. The menuClick event is used to add an event handler to the new menu item.

    <div id="app">
        <ejs-filemanager id="file-manager" ref="file_instance" :contextMenuSettings="contextMenuSettings" :ajaxSettings="ajaxSettings" :menuOpen="menuOpen" :menuClick="menuClick">
import Vue from "vue";
import { FileManagerPlugin, DetailsView, NavigationPane, Toolbar } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-filemanager";

export default {
    data () {
        return {
                url: "",
                getImageUrl: "",
                uploadUrl: "",
                downloadUrl: ""
            // Custom menu item added to context menu
            contextMenuSettings: {
                file: ["Custom", "Open", "|", "Delete", "Rename", "|", "Details"],
                folder: ["Custom", "Open", "|", "Delete", "Rename", "|", "Details","Custom"],
                layout: ["Custom", "SortBy", "View", "Refresh", "|", "NewFolder", "Upload", "|", "Details", "|", "SelectAll"],
                visible: true
    provide: {
            filemanager: [DetailsView, NavigationPane, Toolbar]
    methods: {
        // Icon added to custom menu item in menuOpen event
        menuOpen: function(args){
            for(let i: number = 0; i<args.items.length; i++) {
                if(args.items[i].id === this.$refs.file_instance.$ +"_cm_custom") {
                    args.items[i].iconCss= "e-icons e-fe-tick";
        // Displaying alert for custom menu in menuClick event
        menuClick: function(args) {
            if (args.item.text === "Custom") {
                alert("You have clicked custom menu item")
