I am looking at improving an existing design, which has the following properties:
- The information is hierarchical;
- Every node in that hierarchy can do multiple things, such as expand to view children, view information related to that node on a different page, and to add to a list of favourites.
Right now, a tree is being used for expanding, and on clicking the text for a node, a bubble is shown listing options.
Right now, the only other idea I have is miller columns. Although the behaviour supported here is a little different, as its uses tend to have one particular function for an item, i.e. expand or open.
Finally, it is for the web, so can't really use right click.
Any ideas of something that has similar functionality?
