In my work I was asked to define the scaling behavior of the system interface (or website), and I was wondering whether there are any guidelines or best practices about how to characterize and design the scaling behaviors of different elements on the screen?
for example i`m planning a system with left navigation panel, menu header and main dashboard panel with tabels,forms and graphs. for this system i would like to define the best behavior of each panel. by that i mean, if the user resize the system window, how will the different element will change according to the screen size. should the width porportion of the navigation panel need to remain the same (fixed)? and so on for the other panels
