Remarks

The Context Popup is composed of two components: the ContextMenu and MiniToolbar elements.

Note  The Context Popup acts solely as a logical container for the ContextMenu and MiniToolbar. It does not support scrolling, moving, or resizing.
 

The Context Popup is typically displayed by right-clicking the mouse (or through the keyboard shortcut SHIFT+F10) on an object of interest. The steps required to display the Context Popup are defined by the application.

The ContextMenu is a list of menu items that is contextual and based on the control clicked or the control with focus (when using the keyboard).

The MiniToolbar is a floating toolbar that incorporates various Commands, galleries, and complex controls such as the Font Control and the Combo Box.
