Template and Multilevel nesting

Template

The ContextMenu items can be customized by using the Render event. The item render event triggers while rendering each menu item. The event argument will be used to identify the menu item and customize it based on the requirement. In the following sample, the menu item is rendered with keycode for specified action in ContextMenu using the template. Here, the keycode is specified for Save as, View page source, and Inspect in the right side corner of the menu items by adding span element in the beforeItemRender event.
