Got a context menu to pop up successfully on a ListView in Xaml using this code:
        <ListView Name="lvwCustomersList" Grid.Row="1" BorderBrush="Gray"
                  BorderThickness=".5" ItemsSource="{Binding Path=.}"
                  Height="106" Grid.RowSpan="2" VerticalAlignment="Top" >
            <ListView.ContextMenu>
                <ContextMenu>
                    <!--<menu:lvwRightClick/>-->
                    <MenuItem Header="New" Name="cmnuNew" Click="cmnuNew_Click"/>
                    <MenuItem Header="Delete" Name="cmnuDelete" Click="cmnuDelete_Click"/>
                    <MenuItem Header="Update" Name="cmnuUpdate" Click="cmnuUpdate_Click"/>
                    <Separator />
                    <MenuItem Header="Cancel" Name="cmnuCancel" Click="cmnuCancel_Click"/>
                </ContextMenu>
            </ListView.ContextMenu>
In addition, ALL the click events work in this code.

However, I what I want to do is to make this context menu call more modular
    xmlns:menu="clr-namespace:XXXX.YYYY.Module.Views.Menus"
                <ContextMenu>
                     <menu:lvwRightClick/>
                </ContextMenu>

When I do this, I get a context menu displayed but it's totally blank - code for lvwRightClick:
<UserControl x:Class="Multifamily.Security.Module.Views.Menus.lvwRightClick"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    Height="Auto" Width="Auto">
    <ListView>
        <ListView.ContextMenu>
             <ContextMenu>
                    <MenuItem Header="New" Name="cmnuNew" Click="cmnuNew_Click"/>
                    <MenuItem Header="Delete" Name="cmnuDelete" Click="cmnuDelete_Click"/>
                    <MenuItem Header="Update" Name="cmnuUpdate" Click="cmnuUpdate_Click"/>
                    <Separator />
                    <MenuItem Header="Cancel" Name="cmnuCancel" Click="cmnuCancel_Click"/>
            </ContextMenu>
        </ListView.ContextMenu>
    </ListView>
</UserControl>
