Abstract

When stepping through and debugging a multi-language application, we propose a context-menu design that enhances existing context menus by displaying currently relevant actions at the main-level of the context menu and displaying currently irrelevant (potential) menu items in a compact, less obtrusive way but still remain discoverable by users.
