I am not able to figure out how to build this pop-up type menu for actions link (picture attahced), for each row of the table. It is like a little context menu. I have the link and ul inside TD, but not able to figure out the Jquery and Styles. How do I accomplish this?
<tr>
                       
<td style="width: 140px; text-align: right;padding-right: 20px">

<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="showActions();">Actions</a>
<div class="size">

 <ul class="list">
 <li>Link1</li>
 <li>Link2</li>                                    
</ul>

</div>

</td>

</tr>

Thanks. It gives me something to start with.

Though I accepted the question, can you help my figure out how to hide links list after mouse is out for 2 seconds?
