Speaking as a former teacher filling in marks is something typically done after all of the papers/assignments have been graded. Thus one has ~30 scores to input, and the stack of assignments is in the order the pile is in (order ~= submission order) As such, the closer to a grid like (think Excel) format the better. In fact for speed I'd often re-order ...

One problem I thought exists with this approach has to do with the order in which the teacher needs to enter the scores. If she has a stack of graded tests, she'd need to sort them before using this procedure. It might be nice to be able to type part of the student's name and have matches immediately displayed.

i think you should make the user to confirm leaving ( only if he have entered data ) if he pressed out side , hit ESC or hit cancel . it will be simple ( You have unsaved data , are you sure you want to leave ? ) if he hit yes and open the dialog again , he shouldnt see his unsaved data . also consider how critical is the data entered and its size for ...

Imagine that you have dbl click on single click I mean your mouse need a repair i.e you click once but mouse behave like you made a double click so then what? Maybe if some object is valuable, to delete user must type the name to confirm? Inspiration from deleting repo on GitHub

RuneScape has a pretty good idea here, honestly. Items can be dropped by right-clicking and selecting the "drop" action. This would drop the item to the floor, which can then be picked up by yourself for the first minute, and after that by anyone for another minute. If the item was not tradable, it would just disappear after a minute instead. If the item ...

How about a right-click? Do you store the users control options? Maybe you could give them an option to use double-click (or maybe even right-double-click) without the warning from now on, after their confirmation.

Double-clicking buttons is odd. Usually, in the OS, double-clicking is a shortcut for clicking once (selecting the file) and selecting "Open." Rather than an "Are you sure?" confirmation I prefer an undo action. Confirming every action you take gets tedious real fast, and after a while users click the "Yes" button without thinking about it. Undo, on the ...

As you have pointed out, the double click is not a standard behaviour that your users are familiar with in the situation you are describing. It's not good practice to use non-standard interactions where you could use a standard one. Irreversible actions (such as deletion) are usually followed up with a 'sanity check' like "Are you sure? [Yes] [No]".

The answer is, yes, go with absolute-positioned modal popup. You’re darkening the background content, so that should serve as a cue that a modal is present even if it’s scrolled out of view. However, I’d do a usability test to confirm this. Come up with a task or situation where the test users will scroll the modal out of view and see how easily they ...

Redundancy and duplication is not always a bad thing. The X close icon in the modal is something you see everywhere in software so its meaning is very well known for a very long time (think Microsoft Windows operating system panels and Microsoft apps like MS Office). A command button with a label is often more explicit than an icon, but the choice of label ...

The "OK" button has the wrong word. It should be a "Continue" button, as this is what's required of the user. The user is being asked to acknowledge they're aware of the nature of the warning, and that they'll be continuing without a current reload/refresh of the data. It is not OK that the data didn't load, so there's a needless cognitive dissonance ...

As a general principle what you want to achieve is clear, easy, self-explaining, etc... ways for your users to interact with your application. In this type of modal an "OK" or "Close" modal would be pretty equivalent since they don't have to make a decision about something, it's just an short and simple informative message about something that has already ...
