WPF menu resource usage

I have a ContextMenu resource that needs to be used in three UserControls. It looks like this:

	<ContextMenu x:Key="mnuOverride">
		<MenuItem Header="Show as bits" IsCheckable="True" Name="mnuShowAsBits" />
		<MenuItem Header="Hide Peripheral" Name="mnuHidePeripheral" />
		<Separator />
		<MenuItem Header="View Hidden Peripherals" Name="mnuViewHiddenPeripherals"  />
	</ContextMenu>

Open in new window


One of the menu items needs to be handled in two of the controls and the other two in the third control. How can I do this?

Thanks,
Sid.

One option is to define different context menus in each user control.

Yes that is an option, however I was hoping to not have multiple, duplicated, resources. From my research that may be the only option.
Thanks,
