could you give a bit more details on what the list looks like ? Can you select multiple entries ? I know this has helped me in many situations but not sure whether this could address your problem : http://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/

Hi! So you have the slider which will increase/decrease only at fixed values. Now, suppose I want to set my duration for Break as 2 minutes. I set the slider at 2 and I click on the button "Duration for the Break is". As I know that the label for this action is always going to be in "minutes", it can act as a fixed label for me. I wouldn't need to ...

Is FILE a blindly accepted standard: Yes. UI experts have argued against it, but nobody's going to change something that's been in both Mac and Windows GUIs since, forever. The whole metaphor of a computer working with files and folders kind of requires a File menu. Are the commands in the File menu about the File you are working on? Yes and no. You are ...

The second and subsequent drop-downs should be updated to remove invalid choices, based on what has already been chosen. Once "Album name" has been selected, it cannot appear in any other choice. In the mockup below, if Track name is chosen here, then only Artist name would be available in the third dropdown. download bmml source – Wireframes ...

I'd confirm that it's better to have some options greyed out. Here's an example from outlook. Note the greyed out regions in the dropdown. It also has indicators for adding or removing the case on the fly which I know you mentioned you had. Notice, as choices get exhausted and another case is added, it filters through the secondary choices until ...

If possible, it is always better to design a UI so that a user cannot do the "wrong thing", rather than allowing wrong selections / data entry and then displaying a message. This saves the user time and unnecessary frustration. User shouldn't be able to select items that don't make sense, and for clarity I would say to remove them entirely.

In the case of language selection, we're talking about localization, so I would suggest that it is a 'localization dropdown', 'localization navigation' or something along those lines. Neither of those sound particularly snappy though. Hope this helps.

I like Alexey's idea, because the number and thing measured form a pair. So instead of showing controls for "50" and "repetitions" separately, the user instead edits "50 repetitions". My only concern is that links have a particular meaning and their use here is not standard. For example, I've been in situations where I had to wonder what the link would do, ...

I think that there are two directions that you may follow to make this setting less cluttered: It seems like it's a good idea to treat settings like a meaningful phrases, but using desktop controls makes it unreadable. You may try to replace them by links (every user nowadays is familiar with links so it will not confuse). Doing this you will make your ...

If you want sex just say it. Stop leaving dirty magazines on my pillow. No doubt, a title needs explaining: to label each one w/ their respective code Good idea - clear and not ambiguous. place an icon next to each code representing a code type (then the user somehow has to know what the icons mean) Icons are troubles as they are rarely clear ...
