Allow context menu to be used without a data source

Please allow the context menu to be used without a data source and run using templates only.

That way we can use this control to provide a popup of items that we can control, and don't have to set it up with sometime of blank list of items that are never used.

Hi Richard,

Since the component itself, as per its structure, requires a data source to be provided to its Data parameter, this behavior can be achieved by providing an empty list of object as a data source.

To better illustrate how to do that, I've created this knowledge base article for ContextMenu without data source.
