There are some really good answers here, but I wanted to contribute something from a slightly different perspective... time. If you're purely using filters to limit results, then the most common expectation is that the list being filtered is 'live' and values may change at a regular interval, just as they would if the list weren't being filtered. On the ...

In answer to your literal question, is 'real-time' understood - in the context of a drawing app - outside the tech community, the answer seems to be a resounding yes .. flockdraw.com ... You can have unlimited people in a room and the drawing updates in real time twiddla.com ... ...in a shared, real-time whiteboard... Colorillo.. ...

Terms that could be applicable: noise (the specific tool often used in photoshop) textured background (more generic term, but most graphic designers would know what you are referring to. Alternatively: subtle texture grainy (a term that comes from 'film grain')

I use the "light noise background". But I think this term might be too technical for clients and non-designer/non-frontend colleagues. I'm not sure there is a common, standardized term for it right now. Not in the way we had it with the "brushed metal texture" or "skeumorphic trend".

It's generally known as "[type] mask" where type could be noise, blur, vibrancy, etc. See vibrancy and blur techniques for iOS8 that applies to your scenario, background techniques for iOS7 and Masks in UIVisualEffectView documentation by Apple Please note that I'm taking your SO question as guidance and hwo to make this programatically. If you mean in ...

read If it is absolutely necessary to separate the actions of uploading and parsing, then I recommend you say something like we will attempt to read your file with the following settings above the form to set the parsing options. It's a simple metaphor, that any user who can read the instruction is guaranteed to understand.

I think the easiest definition is to analyze a string of information into its parts and describe their syntactic roles.

For your purposes, parse can be defined as: converting data that is in one format into another format that the computer prefers. You might add that some data may be lost in the conversion.

"Process" may be the most accurate word for "parse" but you can also see whether "Analyze," "Inspect," or "Examine" can work for your users. It's a little more common to see those on buttons on some of the tools that I've seen. Best way is try it out with a user and see whether it makes sense to them. I'd probably keep the button to a one word verb and ...

How about "when you upload the file, our program will interpret and process the information, creating the most appropriate layout"? Or a different phrase touching on the input, processing, and output? "Our program" may not be the correct description depending on what you are working on.


2

Be as contextual as you can be. Button labels should indicate clearly where the user will go if he/she clicks it. As for the options you suggested, "Go back" sounds too absolute, it feels more like a "cancel", "never mind". "Previous/next" is OK, just not the most clear it can be. So if your system is a step by step flow, use labels like "last step" and ...

A related thread on Stack Exchange offers some additional terminology for this type of pattern. There doesn't appear to be a consensus on what it's called, but I had the exact same question so I've been poking around looking for answers. The other thread has references to: Parts Selector Slushbucket Swap List Disjoint Listbox I think "Dual Listbox" and ...

"Previous" is obvious choice here as "Go Back" gives a sense of feel that app is asking/highlighting user to go back where going back to previous screen should be option not mandatory!!

I'd suggest number 3. The typical order would be: Manufacturer - Product Line - Product - Descriptor - Differentiator. Each item appears as an increasingly specific detail to categorise it within the previous element, much like you might use a directory based file path to identify a file on a drive. The identifiers depend on the product and its categories ...

I have always seen it done like #4, I think the idea behind it is to put the differentiating text at the end because it helps keep layout and easier to scan for differences. The first part thats the same keeps in line although the measurements differ, this makes it easier to see that everything else is the same: Epic 13 Shower Stall with Center Drain (33" ...

It's a splitter and paneā€¦ The draggable control itself is a splitter, of one kind or another. The separate space that is created by dragging the splitter usually called a pane or sometimes a panel. To confirm that this is the kind of interaction you meant to describe, have a look at these samples: Telerik example or DevExpress example. There are other ...

This is obviously a very good question as so many people are getting this wrong. :) The Server that the UI talks to is still the front-end. The question is if the server has been designed properly and split into 2 servers - a proper FE and BE. Some answers above are close. FE = the stuff you see or the server that creates/manages the stuff you see. ...

"Finish Registration" or "Confirm Registration" will do the job because they both show explicitly the action that matters to te user. The user wants to register his team, submitting the form is just a medium to do that, not the final goal. For saving I would use "Save progress" with the same logic: trying to be as explicit as possible minifying the chances ...

"Updated Changes"? That doesn't even make sense in English. "Update Changes" does not either. Save changes is perfectly fine here and if you're still worried about humanising the page, you can always seek to crowd test "Save Draft". Submit does sound a bit formal, but it's not exactly going to turn people away. Perhaps you can try "apply" or "Enrol [this ...
