To include a right-click action for the navigation menu in Angular, you can use the (contextmenu) event binding. You can use it on the <ul> or <li> element of the navigation menu.

  1. Add (contextmenu) event binding to the <ul> or <li> element.
<ul (contextmenu)="onRightClick($event)">
  <li><a routerLink="/">Home</a></li>
  <li><a routerLink="/about">About</a></li>
  <li><a routerLink="/contact">Contact</a></li>
  1. Define the onRightClick() method in the component to handle the right-click action.
onRightClick(event: MouseEvent) {
  // Your right-click action goes here
  1. In the onRightClick() method, you can call any custom function or open a context menu using the ContextMenuService or any other third-party library.
import { ContextMenuService } from 'ngx-contextmenu';

constructor(private contextMenuService: ContextMenuService) {}

onRightClick(event: MouseEvent) {
  event.preventDefault();{ event });
  // You can also call any custom function here

The above example uses the ContextMenuService from ngx-contextmenu library to open a context menu. You can use any other library or create your own context menu.
