I'm experimenting with the HTML5 contextmenu item in the latest version of Firefox (only browser that currently supports it). When I click on a menu item from the context menu how can I access the original element that was clicked when the menu was spawned?
The use case would be displaying a list of items and you want the user to perform an action on a particular item. Once the action is clicked from the menu you need a way to determine what element in the list was originally clicked on to spawn the menu.
Here is a JSFiddle (use Firefox to test)
Just save it somewhere like
this.cte = arguments; then retrieve it later
