Feature Request - Customize ECB's

Dec 3, 2010 at 4:23 PM

I have been utilizing SPServices for a variety of projects for the past year and I wanted to start off by letting you know that I genuinely appreciate the work that has been put into this project.  I can't count the number of times I've had a question with either SharePoint or jQuery and ended up with my friend Google directing me to some of Marc's content.

My most recent project (SP2007) requires me to either create a custom context menu for multiple data views contained on a single page or modify the existing Edit Control Block (ECB)'s on multiple list views to allow for quick ajaxy edits. When possible I try to avoid full page postbacks so when I stumbled across Jan's article to easily do just this I was excited.

My point.... Jan's script is pretty powerful I wanted to know if the ability to easily customize the ECB's of a page would be a good fit for SPServices.  In my opinion, this would be another great tool to have in my Middle Tier toolbox.  Just my 2 cents.

Keep up the good work.

I actually have combined this library in creating my own ECB as you mentioned. There are a lot of things that you can do with this. I had to take my custom ECB to the .Net side of the house for some complex permission tests, but for the most part you can use all javascript.
