public Object context ;


Context is the object that is the target of a menu command.

Usually the context is the current selection or the item under the mouse when invoking a context menu. The new menu item is added to the list supplied by the selected component. The component in the Inspector has a clickable circular item at the top right. The image below shows how the Rigidbody has a MenuItem that is accessible with a click. The Context name is "Do Something". See the script below.

Context menu location.

// Add a context menu item named "Do Something" to the Rigidbody top right context menu

using UnityEngine; using UnityEditor;

public class Something : EditorWindow { // Add menu item [MenuItem("CONTEXT/Rigidbody/Do Something")] static void DoSomething(MenuCommand command) { Rigidbody body = (Rigidbody)command.context; body.mass = 5; Debug.Log("Changed Rigidbody's Mass to " + body.mass + " from Context Menu..."); } }
