I am more of a developer and get beat up by the UX guys but I do something a lot like this but on a larger screen. Our users can create notes. And these notes can be up to 800 characters. They like to re-use some / many. In the list I only show the first x characters. In the select/edit box they see the whole message. Tab in the last position ...

Taking in account that each text will have 30-60 characters, if after selection your app moves towards another page/slide (so you don't have any other controls in the same page, which is usual on mobile) you can just place the text divided with lines or as in the image with different color backgrounds and a scrollbar which main role is to serve as a position ...

From the iOS Human Interface Guidelines, you use what's called a:

Essentially this is like adding tags - where each state is a valid tag. As the user types, a set of valid completion tags appears. Selecting one adds it to the list with immediate access to remove it again. Very similar to how the tags work here on stack exchange. If users don't know the states ( eg are from outside the US) then really they do need to ...

Whatever design you choose, think about placing some container which displays the current selected items, so that way users won't have to remember what they've selected previously by themselves, avoiding the need for scrolling back to double-check every selection. This way also the most relevant data for the action is showed separately from everything so it ...

I would use a Button Based UI in this case. Why? From what you've described in the use case about metadata-aware spreadsheets, I'm assuming that the most user actions would start with the question: "I need to take some action on these cells". The question you need to be answering for them is - "Which cells do you want to act on?" and then, "What do you ...

Using your vocabulary, I would expect a Button-based UX when using any program that looked like a spreadsheet. It sounds like you have some interesting new functionality in mind, but at the core, your product is going to appear like, and function like, a spreadsheet. Spreadsheets have become fairly standardized and users expect their existing spreadsheet ...

Select then act Spreadsheets lend themselves to selecting the area to act upon then editing or choosing your action. In the case of tagging cells or ranges, as a user I would expect to select my range then apply the tag, not the other way around. There are likely some actions that blur the lines (eg cetain types of large area formatting), but those cases ...

Option 2 and 3 are more consistent. Option 1 lacks consistency. As user will be unaware of the checkbox event and then presenting him to choose one more option once he selects the category is a bad idea. User should be aware of the idea that once he selects a check box he has to select a dropdown list. In my view 2, 3 both are good but in providing user with ...

Option 1. Design principles There are two design principle behind this recommendation: Progressive disclosure A strategy for managing information complexity in which only necessary or requested information is displayed at any given time. Signal to noise ratio The ratio of relevant to irrelevant information in a display. The highest possible ...

I can't find any specific user research data on this topic but there is plenty of tests showing LESS is MORE. Option 3 shows roles and although disabled has a chance of raising questions "Will the Viewer role accidentally get assigned?" (friction) Option 2 removes the role but also raises questions, "I can assign roles to the first 2 but why not the last ...

First approach of showing options in another child layer is better, since context is preserved or easy to understand, compared to showing the those 4 options in a popup(title of the popup may give the context, but not inline context). For, first approach if the options are limited to only four it may be better to use ratio buttons instead of combo dropdown, ...

Case 1:- Grid with few rows (<10) Show radio buttons always instead of combo(repetition is not a big deal with few rows). Case 2:- Grid with several rows (>10) Show radio buttons on mouseover only(to avoid repetition), otherwise by default show selected action in that column. Combo is not a good choice for following reasons:- Need to click ...

If the number of selection options (Yes, No & Undecided) are the only ones or to the max if the options increase to 5 the following approach is feasible. Herein you want such a control in a grid and that too for every row wherein numerous other controls and values will be displayed. In such a scenario using a "Drop-down" for the same will be an ideal ...

I would prefer this UI: A 'remove' icon in the Input control appears when the user selects a date. He can simple click on the icon to remove any selected date.

That space between the "Now" and the "Done" button is screaming out to me for a "clear date" (or other appropriate legend) button.

Click it again. When I select something, then realise it was optional and decide that actually, I'd rather not provide it, the most natural thing to try is to press again on the selected item. This echoes the familiar check box, as well as a physical push button.

Sort of a variant on skwokz suggestion, I've dealt with customizing that widget and my solution is to go around it. My preferred UI here has, above or below the date input: the original (if updating a record) value, which if clicked will reset the widget an "x" button that if clicked will blank out the widget Listing the original date allows the user ...

The general practice to "undo" a new selection and revert back to the the previous selection is to add a cancel button although it might be somewhat awkward to fit it in here. I think the "x" would work fine however it just need to be placed visibly. Alternatively you can have a "Reset" button that when pressed, reselects the saved selection. The user ...
