Menus vs. context menus
Menus and context menus are similar in how they look and what they can contain. In fact, you can use the same control, MenuFlyout, to create them. The difference is how you let the user access it.
When should you use a menu or a context menu?
- If the host element is a button or some other command element whose primary role is to present additional commands, use a menu.
- If the host element is some other type of element that has another primary purpose (such as presenting text or an image), use a context menu.
For example, use a menu on a button to provide filtering and sorting options for a list. In this scenario, the primary purpose of the button control is to provide access to a menu.
If you want to add commands (such as cut, copy, and paste) to a text element, use a context menu instead of a menu. In this scenario, the primary role of the text element is to present and edit text; additional commands (such as cut, copy, and paste) are secondary and belong in a context menu.
Here’s the use cases:
