Contextmenu

1. What does the component do?

  • It provides context-specific actions, either dynamically via right mouse click on an element or statically via an icon.

2. When should the component be used?

  • • When actions for efficient execution are to be provided on an object depending on the status or role of the user.

3. Rules

  • A context menu can be provided via the right mouse click or via an icon.
  • The context menu may contain icons but does not have to.
  • On a level of the context menu, there is either an icon for all menu items or none at all.
  • Menu items can be grouped. Groups are separated by a dash.
  • A context menu can be used for sorting elements. In this case, an arrow is used to show which attribute is used for sorting and in which direction.
  • Providing deeper level structures is also permitted. However, it is worth noting that the more complex, the less efficient it is to use.
