Overlapping menu issue

Great tools you have made.

I have encountered an issue using menu. It seldoms happen but there is an overlapping between the 2 menu levels - see the screenshot attached.


I am using a external library to create js context menu This library is based on jquery-ui. I have reported the bug to the team but they have redirected me to you as they say it seems to be related to jQuery UI Menu itself.

Here the code I used :

                    delegate: ".hasContextMenu",
                    menu: "#options",
                    show: { effect: "blind", duration: 100 },
                    position: function (event, ui) {
                        return { my: "left top", at: "left", of: event, collision: "flipfit", within: $("#html-viewport") }
                    preventSelect: true,
                    blur: function (event, ui) {
                        if (event.toElement && == 'canvas')
                    beforeOpen: function (event, ui) {
                        if (!enableContextMenu) {
                            enableContextMenu = options.EnableContextMenu;
                            return false;
                        } else {
                            if (!DirectionalLightCastShadow && !SpotLightCastShadow)
                                $("#html-container").contextmenu("showEntry", "shadow-control-element", false);
                                $("#html-container").contextmenu("showEntry", "shadow-control-element", true);



Could it be a position setting issue? (my: "left top", at: "left", of: event, collision: "flipfit", within: $("#html-viewport"))

Thanks for your help.

Hi Sebastien_TraceParts,

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery UI project. Can you please provide a live example of this problem on either jsFiddle or jsBin?

You can use this as a starting point: Note that this example uses the latest code from the master branch of the git repo, and we have removed the need for

tags in menus. If you can create the issue using 1.10.3 that's fine too.
