How to add new action under Context menu in Dynamics AX

Each node in the AOT contains a set of available actions. You can access these actions from the
context menu, which you can open by right-clicking any node.

You can create custom actions for any element in the AOT by enlist a class as a new add-in by following:
1. Create a new menu item and give it a meaningful name, a label, and Help text.
2. Set the menu item’s Object Type property to Class.
3. Set the menu item’s Object property to the name of the class to be invoked by the add-in.
4. Drag the menu item to the SysContextMenu menu.
5. If you want the action available only for certain nodes, you need to modify the verifyItem
method on the SysContextMenu class.
