I am trying to get the official name for the 3 dots horizontal and 3 dots vertical buttons in SharePoint. What I have come up with at the end is Ellipsis for the horizontal three dots and Kabob or ant for the vertical three dots and prefer Kabob. Are these right or are there any official name for these buttons?

1 Answer 1


Referring this SO post, We have many names for each of it. Nothing is official.

enter image description here

3 horizontal dots - (horizontal) ellipsis, meatballs menu

3 vertical dots - vertical ellipsis, kebab, dango menu

9 dots - bento, waffle menu

3 horizontal lines - hamburger menu
