Collect statistics on the use of open source

TOAST UI ContextMenu applies Google Analytics (GA) to collect statistics on the use of open source, in order to identify how widely TOAST UI ContextMenu is used throughout the world. It also serves as important index to determine the future course of projects. location.hostname (e.g. > β€œui.toast.com") is to be collected and the sole purpose is nothing but to measure statistics on the usage.

To disable GA, use the following usageStatistics option when creating the instance.

const options = {
    usageStatistics: false
const instance = new ContextMenu(container, options);

Or, include tui-code-snippet(v2.2.0 or later) and then immediately write the options as follows:

tui.usageStatistics = false;

πŸ’Ύ Install

TOAST UI products can be used by using the package manager or downloading the source directly. However, we highly recommend using the package manager.

Via Package Manager

TOAST UI products are registered in two package managers, npm and bower. You can conveniently install it using the commands provided by each package manager. When using npm, be sure to use it in the environment Node.js is installed.


$ npm install --save tui-context-menu # Latest version
$ npm install --save tui-context-menu@<version> # Specific version


$ bower install tui-context-menu # Latest version
$ bower install tui-context-menu#<tag> # Specific version

Via Contents Delivery Network (CDN)

TOAST UI products are available over the CDN powered by TOAST Cloud.

You can use the CDN as below.

<script src="https://uicdn.toast.com/tui.context-menu/latest/tui-context-menu.js"></script>

If you want to use a specific version, use the tag name instead of latest in the url's path.

The CDN directory has the following structure.

πŸ”¨ Usage


You need to add two elements. One is the container element to display a context menu, and the other is a target element in which a context menu is attached.

<div id="tui-context-menu-container"></div>
<div id="tui-context-menu-target"></div>


This component can be used by creating an instance with the constructor function. To get the constructor function, you should import the module using one of the following ways depending on your environment.

Using namespace in browser environment

const ContextMenu = tui.ContextMenu;

Using module format in node environment

const ContextMenu = require('tui-context-menu'); /* CommonJS */
import ContextMenu from 'tui-context-menu'; /* ES6 */

You should call register method with options after creating an instance to attach a context menu.

const container = document.getElementById('tui-context-menu-container');
const target = document.getElementById('tui-context-menu-target');

const instance = new ContextMenu(container);

instance.register(target, { ... });
