Split menu buttons have two separate click areas: The primary click area to the left displays an icon and/or text label and performs an action immediately The click area to the right is an arrow that opens a drop down menu with appropriate variations of the default action. Guidelines All options in a split menu button should initiate an action. Do not use submenus. Example: Example of a split menu button. I've change this from what was written so far in the wiki from wiki -- Menu buttons are buttons that open a drop-down menu on click. They differ from normal buttons by a small arrow that is displayed next to the button's text label or icon (toolbar button). I think this is wrong - you need an additional button to then initiate the action, it doesn't make sense - it's a drop down...I think it's only a split button however, some drop downs look like text fields, and some like buttons (but it's not a button issue, it's a drop down issue, due to definition of button...)
