Proposed merge with Combo box[edit]

I vote for keeping the Combo box article separate. See Talk:Combo box for discussion of the difference between the controls. --VinceBowdren 08:11, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

Drop-down or Dropdown? In the title is written the first, in the content the second. Thanks. 81.213.88.218 (talk) 13:46, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

It was originally Drop-down, but 64.129.164.119 (talk) changed it to Dropdown a couple of weeks ago without explanation. As far as I can tell both variants are in common usage so we should just stick to one of them; and given that changing the article title is more hassle, IMO we should just revert to Drop-down. --VinceBowdren (talk) 13:53, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

GUI Best Practices[edit]

When should designers use one vs. another? Is there an article on GUI design best practices? It is one thing to know how they function, but the next issue is when to use one vs. another. I'm just a reader, looking for a resource. Thanks for the work you guys do. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.239.143.201 (talk) 15:24, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Hyphen or No?[edit]

Is it drop down or drop-down? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.42.26.190 (talk) 20:54, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

"Drop-down list" is spelled with a hyphen because "drop-down" is a compound modifier. – jaksmata 21:08, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Alternative names >>>[edit]

I've seen "pulldown list" frequently used to describe the same thing. Google returns 15,400,000 results for "drop-down list", but there are also 1,780,000 results for "pulldown list". Dropdown menu is sometimes used interchangeably as well although in web this can sometimes mean a flyout javascript style menu. --EvenGreenerFish (talk) 00:18, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
