iOS Open Source : Slide in Menu, DDActionHeaderView

DDActionHeaderView is a UI control written by Ching-Lan Huang that presents a customizable slide in menu of options. This is a nice control when you need to offer options to a user, yet, don’t need/want to display the controls on the screen at all times.

The screenshot below show how the control is used in two iPhone applications:
