It was wise to group all of the standard OS GUI window resize buttons, although the Miniplayer button in iTunes is still on the right-hand side, but neither the traffic light color scheme (which was kept from previous versions) nor the complete replacement seem very intuitive. Full Screen mode makes sense for some applications, others should have Best Fit ...
As I recall, excel used that green flag to denote a cell that was calculated from a function. This might confuse the average person who's seen that before. Personally, I think the best way to denote that changes are pending on a per-field basis would be to make the text bold and/or surround the field with a more pronounced text-box look. When they submit ...
I would have the Create button, near the top of the page (perhaps in a fixed/sticky bar, so always visible) as you mention. Then if your design is a table of items which can each be read, updated or deleted. Have a column to the far right, with buttons for each action arranged horizontally. These could be simple text links, buttons or icons.
Based on the information given, your design seems like a very good one. Being able to perform actions without scrolling back to the top of the page is an obvious benefit. Functionality should not be dictated by what is easiest to develop. Within reason, development should be driven by design, not the other way around. And your proposed design is ...
So it's a control that represents something extremely intuitive to human beings... Yes/No, True/False. The problem that you state is the the current check boxes look too similar to some check boxes that represent something else. My suggesting is to use the tried and true images... A green checkmark for True and a Red X for false. (Maybe an option for ...
I think it really depends on the area, but maybe just the typography can help you: some ideas: 1)Strike-through PARTICIPANTS Jim Tim Bob It's quite clear who is participating and who's not. 2) disabled look I guess you can get what options are included :)
To show this as a two state controller, you could try any of the following. Depending of the audience's knowledge of the matter, 1 and 0 could replace true and false to save space. If they are to be read only, you have the choice of disabling them, or just print them as labels (e.g. similar to a button, but not able to press it) - all depending what you ...
how about you write true or false somewhere on the interface?
The short answer Simply use labels. The long answer If you are to design anything based on future possibilities, you will never finish a design, because possibilities are endless. There are basically 3 design approaches (UX or software): Throwaway (revolutionary) When you have little understanding of the problem (high level of uncertainty) You design ...
You could use icons. Price tables like on this site sometimes use it. If it can be more childish, you can use emoticons (smile/frown, thumb up/down, ...). Edit: Paul S already mentions this in a comment.
