There are a lot of different considerations involved when you are talking about the 'best way' for a user to enter a value, especially when you have many fields and many line items to enter. So rather than to provide an answer, here are some factors that you should take into consideration: Are you aiming for accuracy or speed because what you gain in ...

In order to allow data to be entered quickly, I would recommend allowing keyboard input, much like an Excel spreadsheet. Pressing enter or tab should advance to the next box to reduce the need for the user to switch between keyboard and mouse. I would however recommended including an up/down button, to make it easy to change values once they have been ...

In order to answer your own question, ask yourself how this UI works and dig deeper into what's being communicated to the user. What does each row do? The rows' function(s) should dictate their appearance. Are they clickable? Do they do something in the same page or link elsewhere?

The scrollbar and alphabet-index next to each other is likely to be too fiddly for mobile users. Mobile users (at least on iOS) are used to using the index in a fast-scroll way. The iOS contacts app only has an index (on the right), no scrollbar. Unless it is pure B2B or internal ECommerce for really old-school/ corporate audience, you should really take ...

It’s indeed an unnecessary extra step to manually calculate the age (a number, often floored) from a birth date (a 3-tuple), but you may be able to save the user another step, because all they need to know (from privacy and discriminatory POVs as well) is whether the candidate has turned 18 by a certain date. That‘s a Boolean value with just 2 states, true ...

Could the list be organised hierarchically instead of alphabetically? Then you could use an accordion or a collapsible tree. e.g. MATERIALS Metal Copper Gold Iron Lead Mercury Silver Tin Wood Ash Beech Cedar Maple Oak Pine If using the alphabetic approach, I think tabs would be better, as it is analogous to a card index.

Pros: Action bar can be used for other purposes Both map and list can be view at the same time Cons: May clutter small screens Both map and list can ...
