Adding A Menu To A UXP Plugin

I want to add a menu to a plugin which shows in the Plugins Panel like this

but I cant seem to find any documentation or example files to look at. My understanding is that a menu can only be added when the manifest is configured to be a Panel and not a Command but I may be wrong on this.

Has anyone got any examples on adding menus like this please

Alchemist is actually open-source so here you can find one part of that: https://github.com/jardicc/alchemist/blob/master/uxp/manifest.json#L48

and here is the second part: https://github.com/jardicc/alchemist/blob/master/src/shared/classes/Main.ts#L21

So you need to define that in manifest and then listen “uxpcomand” event on the document element.

ThankYou, this really was helpful in letting me understand how this is achieved through the entrypoints of the manifest file.
