Edit Control Block (ECB)

Now I may well be setting my self up for a big slap with this one but I thought I would go for it anyway. When you are looking at a list item and you activate the drop down box from the item (you know the one with view item, edit item, alert me, delete etc.)  there is a name for it.

I have heard it described as :

  • Item drop down
  • Item Context menu
  • Right click menu (good luck with that).
  • And more

It is however called the "Edit Control Block (ECB)"

Good times. Now line up and give me my punishment for not knowing this. I am picturing a scene like out of Airplane where that woman is getting hysterical and an orderly queue is formed.
