I have a specific question about the context menu for uitree. It seems that there is no way to identify within the ContextMenuOpening or ContextMenuSelected callbacks which specific tree node fires this call. The two callbacks only accepts app and event as input. There isn't a source variable that is allowed. However, Source is also a field of event struct, but this event.Source points to the context menu, not the source that fires it.
any solution?

You can add a dedicated context menu to each tree node and give it a Tag and/or UserData.
The event source will contain the Tag as well as the UserData.
