How can I show popup menu from my docked plugin panel.

Right now I have bunch of operations realised after clicking button but one of them need more options and I would like to ask user with popup window.

I’am trying to use simple code where dock is (like in official tutorial) my instanced scene with plugin interface:

func GeneratePaths():

here is my tree:

I used a RMB (right mouse button) option signal and then set the rect_position to my global mouse position. That way the popup menu extended down from where the user clicked. (Context Menu)

$menu/Tree/Menu.rect_position = get_global_mouse_position()
$menu/Tree/Menu.visible = true

I don’t see where you are setting the popup to visible in your code and you are using show() instead of popup(). Try this:

func GeneratePaths():
   dock.get_node("Popup").visible = true
