To respond to clicks on context buttons in a centralized way, handle the RepositoryItemPictureEdit.ContextButtonClick event. The Item property of the ContextItemClickEventArgs object passed to the event handler as a parameter, allows you to determine the button being clicked.

The RepositoryItemPictureEdit.ContextButtonOptions property provides access to the settings applied to the context buttons and the panels that contain them. For instance, you can specify the indent between the buttons, the background color of each panel, animation used to show and hide the panels, and the padding around the buttons.
