How to edit ECB menu items in SharePoint 2007 using non-code method & code method?

share|improve this question
What is the problem and what are you trying to achieve? – Lars Fastrup Sep 12 '11 at 9:54
What I would achieve is that I do not want some end-user to be able to use some of the ECB menu item and therefore I would either hide those menu items or just delete those menu item. – Wilson Tan Sep 13 '11 at 2:54

There is no non-code method for this.

Jan Tielen’s three-part series is nice resource for adding items on ECB.

However hiding item can be only done by changing core.js and this is something you don't do. Take a look at my answer here: Disable Send To and Download a Copy options for files?

Got your point. Is there other solution beside the changing of the core.js? (Maybe using the permission or etc..) – Wilson Tan Sep 13 '11 at 2:58

Actually, I found another work around using the SPServices (

Rather than allow the user to have direct access to the SharePoint List (and thus having the "power" to use the ECB menu), I will use a aspx file that provide interface with the SharePoint List via SPServices.
