Are you looking for an interface for setting these boundaries or displaying the alerts? If you're looking for the input I would use something like this: Then if the user adjusts the warning bar past the range of the critical bar you can just have the critical bar extend simultaneously keeping it always greater or equal to the warning. This will save you ...

I would use the title to allow the user to hover over the input and view all of the text. Example: <input type="text" title="something that exceeds the width of the box" value="something that exceeds the width of the box">

In this situation you either need to switch to a new tool that will provide a better user experience or let the user know what to expect up front. Communication is key People are actually pretty forgiving if you are honest with them. Post a note at the top explaining the limitations of the tool so they know what to expect and are aware of it. The ...

There are several ways to solve this problem and it has a lot of "it depends." OPTION 1: Assuming there are not to many options you can list them and have the user select his option with radio buttons. OPTION 2: Use a revealed div and a scroll bar, if necessary. OPTION 3: Put ellipses when the line gets longer and show a tool-tip (don't like this option) ...

I think 3 is the best option here. 1 & 2 show the form fields and have them disabled, this could indicate to a user that they could become editable - and they may wonder if they need to perform an action to make them editable. Because they will never be editable, no form controls are needed. The data should be printed. Another thing they may help this ...

The model that springs to mind for me are the widgets used in graphics tools for defining gradients, particularly those that allow for multi-stop gradients. Take, for example, Pixelmator. You start by defining the start and end stops of the gradients - the first and last colour. You can then click the mouse anywhere over the body of the gradient to add a ...

This is a common question in design schools, and the answer is really easy: you should align the left extreme of a paragraph or block of content with the left extreme of the input field. Basically, exception made of content blocks with paddings (like blockquotes), all text should be aligned according to the desired alignment option (left, right, center). ...

Generally, align the left of the field, not the text content: There are several reasons for this: Better alignment. For boxed input elements (i.e. with outlines, borders or shadows), the vertical | edges of the box tend to attract the eye as it scans down the left column so the form will be perceived as more organized if that vertical line is ...

Thinks this is rather opinion based. I believe its more common that the information to be aligned with the text boxes, i.e. option 1. however besides to your question, think you should also consider labels above the textboxes which seems to be easier to use http://uxmovement.com/forms/faster-with-top-aligned-labels/ this is also quite a detailed guide ...

I believe it is wrong to give a warning that the caps lock is on because after all if a user already typed in his email/username before entering his password he probably knew its on. Additionally some people have passwords with many capital letters in them so they use the caps lock instead of the shift key. Its not your responsibility to tell a user to ...

This is quite interesting question to be answered. It is the very first heuristic by Nielsen Norman which states "visibility of system status- the system should always keep users informed about what is going on, through appropriate feedback within reasonable time". I want to focus on responsibilities of UX practitioners, we should always see things from ...

Showing on the screen that Caps Lock is ON is a good practice. This is because you never know which actions user will perform while handling your system/website. Consider a novice user by mistakenly pressed caps lock and as it is not shown on the screen he is trying to enter the data/password. At the time of submitting he will surely be frustrated and ...

Indicating the caps lock is on is a design pattern used for passwords. When the passwords are hidden and every character is only represented by a dot, users might not know they're typing capitals where they shouldn't. It's easy to overlook the fact your caps lock is on. For example, I'm used to typing with ten fingers. While typing my elbows are set quite ...

I think the feature is very useful for password fields where you cannot see what you are typing and it gives you comfort to know you are typing the intended characters. Of course, most keyboards have a led that is on when you have the caps lock active, but it's nice to be reminded in the context of the form. This is a good practice because most password ...

If I have the correct understanding the only thing that cannot be overridden is the customer blackout date. If that's correct I would simply employ a standard calendar control to select delivery date. Dates that are customer blackouts would be disabled and could not be selected. Instead of nominal date I would have a max shipping days setup in the customer ...
