I believe the term you are looking for is "Confirmation Dialog" A simple google search on this term shows numerous examples of the paradigm you described. Confirmation Box Google Images "Chicken Box" by contrast shows delicious golden brown fried chicken Chicken Box Google Images

It's just a simple Dialog Box. Dialog boxes consist of a title bar (to identify the command, feature, or program where a dialog box came from), an optional main instruction (to explain the user's objective with the dialog box), various controls in the content area (to present options), and commit buttons (to indicate how the user wants to commit to the ...

When a user select a seat, she is having a device in front of her imagining the ride she is about to take. For the user the forward direction is in the line of sight and away in the distance. Thinking of going forward makes a vertical seat map more natural. The front of the vehicle need to point upward to make this analogy work. The horizontal ...

A few suggestions I'd have for distraction-free, or user-friendly, text writing UIs: • Tall text field Longform text fields, like the one I'm using to reply to you, provide an inherent white space - so making this field sufficiently tall to feel spacious would be the first step. One helpful additional feature is an expandable text field, as this one on ...

I'd suggest you go with the empty item. For two reasons: To be consistent with your criteria options. Why should a user have to leave the date fields empty to get the complete range but have to select an option when it comes to types You usually refine your search by applying filters. Selecting "All" does not refine your search result whereas selecting a ...

(consider this more user feedback than UX professional feedback) The and and or filters are too complicated. Use and only. The user is smart enough to know that city and mountain and sea view will have few to no results. This simplifies the design (Look at View and Internet, my paint skills are limited): It works out very well with Internet since you can ...

The first issue is, which x does what? You have two "x" icons which may do the same thing, but perhaps not. If they do the same thing - why do you have two? If they don't do the same thing - you're using the same icon to do two different things! My concern is that a user may hit the "X" when they intended to hit the arrow, accidentally clearing their ...

There are various pros and cons for each. For instance, XML files can be emailed and shared over the internet, whereas a GUI application need someone to click about. But I think that from a pure UX perspective the main argument in favour of GUI is that text (or XML) files are far more prone to user errors, as any programmer who's application didn't work ...

Target's Cartwheel app does mobile coupon generation and redemption (via QR code) after you browse their offers and select the ones you're interested in: (Each coupon you choose to redeem has its own unique expiration date, so I don't think they can explicitly have a time limit on the coupon—I'm guessing the barcode generated only works within the ...

I found this particularly insightful : http://www.colormatters.com/color-symbolism/global-color-survey. After taking the survey, the results were as follows. Over 130,000 people from all points on the globe took the survey. Here are the results: Happy - Yellow Pure - White Good Luck - Green Good-tasting - Red (tomato) Dignity - Dark Blue High Technology ...

When clients say they want to transmit something, I normally ask them for examples of what products, logos or slogans they have in mind at that time. My idea of luxurous may not be exactly the same of my client, so through examples and exploring more of their public I can have more of those informations. Maybe people from one country think golden colors ...

It sounds like when a parent already exists, your "add a new parent" isn't so much an "add a new parent" as an "add a node between the parent and child". Acknowledging that there are really three distinct actions, you could put an "add parent" on every root of the tree(s), an "add child" on every leaf, and an "add between" on any connector. ...

Why not use both of those solutions? Facebook does this by how relevant the time is to you such as: A post that was put up today will show: But once the post becomes older, it will do this: So in your case, you could use both depending on how relevant it is. If the due date is a month from now you can go into details: "Do the dishes - Monday, ...

It's a well established recommendation for publications containing masses of continuous text to use hyphenation. Nope. It's a well established recommendation for publications on paper containing masses of continuous text to use hyphenation. Even on paper you will find a bunch of style guides that recommend against it. Remember that the one of the ...

The first problem is that you have only one link "add" for different kind of content. If you can it should be better to contextualize each link : "add a product" on your product list "add a link" on your link list "add an image" wherever you need to insert the picture Then when you ask him to choose a kind of product, he is already answering a question, ...

You can simplify it by transforming the tabs into a decision tree. Something like this accordion control : Then you can just pop up the right(single) window, instead of popping up a window with tabs.

Try both and see which one users respond to better. A/B testing is a good way to do that. As for my personal thought, I'd think vertical is better. Much like maps have North at the top, I would think of the vehicle front as the top. This is the way I've seen airlines do it, so perhaps it's just my past experience has trained me that way.

It sounds to me that, if possible, multi-threading may be a fourth and best-of-both-worlds option. You could monitor the progress of the export and update the UI using a separate thread, which should result in a significant boost in export performance. If this is not an option, is too difficult, or does not help for whatever reason, talking the users into ...

A solution would be to talk to your front-end designer/developer, or to give him some kind of documentation about the ids/classes that you used to bind the events to. I would make sure to replace elements selectors (#mydiv > p) with selectors that point directly to ids or classes (#paragraphInsideMyDiv) so that the templates could even be done from scratch ...

Just because the medium changes doesn't mean visual balance no longer applies. Because web apps are in a browser and browser sizes vary depending on the user, it is a bit different when comparing it to print media, where the designer knows explicitly the dimensions of the final product. Design is not an exact science, but setting appropriate css rules with ...
