How does one implement context menus within the Matlab App Developer?

3 views (last 30 days)
This seems as thought it should be simple but I've been having a devil of a time with it.
There's no context menu control within App Developer and the objects that I've created don't seem to have UIContextMenu as properties. So, while I can create context menus using the uicontextmenu command upon the display of the app figure, I am not able to assign those menus to any of the controls.
Have I missed something very obvious? Or is there a known workaround? Or is this merely a limitation of App Developer and, in this case, when will this limitation be addressed?
Thanks in advance.

I am also struggling with this issue. Has anyone figured out how to implement context menus in the app designer?

As of 16B atleast, appdesigner doesn't have a context menu option.
I think same applies to Toolbars and ActiveX control.

App designer supports Context Menu and Toolbar components as of 2020a.
