    Default custom context menu links

    Is it possible to add custom html to a right click context menu?

    I have a context menu with several menu items and when a menu item is clicked a different url should open in a new browser window. So far I have it working with xml but there are a couple of problems.

    1. The window does not open in a new tab even though I have the firefox setting "new pages should be opened in tabs" selected.

    2. When the user clicks on a second menu item, instead of opening a new window it overrides the first window that was opened.

    To fix this I could just use some custom html to add my own links to the context menu but I am not sure how to do this.

    I have also tried javascript to open the pages which works a little better but I still can't get the external pages to open in new tabs without overriding a previously opened tab.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Ok I figured this out. If you need links in your context menu just htmlencode them and put it in the label attribute. For example
    <menuItem label="&lt;a href=&quot;/path/to/page.php&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Link Name&lt;/a&gt;" id="some_id" />

    There are a few panel item menu examples here:

    Also, check this out as a reference for the XML tags in the Zimlet Definition File:
