The invention relates to a software system and method for dynamically varying context sensitive menus of a software system. In this method, a menu item is added to a context sensitive menu of a graphical user interface (GUI) at the request of a subsystem module. Then, an activation event for the context sensitive menu is received from the GUI. The added menu item is displayed as either active or inactive based on a response to a query from the software system to a second subsystem module. The action associated with the menu item specified by the first subsystem module is executed when the menu item is selected only if it is active.
