comment Patterns and models for representing Many-to-many relationships in interface design
Hi @Tara ... I haven't had much luck finding general resources, so mostly I have to figure it out on a case-by-case basis. In my current project I am toying with side-by-side lists of each of the entities. When an item is selected, it transforms all of the eligible items for a relationship into checkboxes.

comment Building logical criteria (with AND , OR, etc)
No problem @Swoosh, it was an interesting exercise

comment Building logical criteria (with AND , OR, etc)
Note: I think I would re-label the "Add another Action" button to "Add another Rule". But then I would have to re-do the screen shots

revised Building logical criteria (with AND , OR, etc)
Added screen shots from prototype, and expanded text for clarity

comment Patterns and models for representing Many-to-many relationships in interface design
I think I may ask a new question to more clearly express what I'm after. Marked as correct because this gives a nice example of a many-to-many interface. Sorry again for not being specific enough in my question.

comment Patterns and models for representing Many-to-many relationships in interface design
Absolutely, that is the sort of thing I would be interested in seeing concrete examples of. Where do you click to add a new node? How do you set attributes (e.g. title and image)? Through a dialog box, or inline editing, or on a whole new page? How does the user create links? How do they delete a link without deleting a node? This may be too broad a topic for a single Stack Exchange question, but I'm thinking in terms of CRUD for many-to-many interfaces.

@kaiser, Thanks for the link to the library - there is some pretty snazzy stuff in there :-) However, I'm not sure if it is really what I'm after... That library seems to be more to do with data visualization, where I am more looking for interfaces for the user to actually enter data. This kind of visualization could come in handy once the data is actually entered. Sorry for not being specific enough.

Fantastic Thanks! A quick google has found me a few potential jquery implementations.

comment Why don't most elevator panels let you unselect?
Another elevator design question that always bugs me - why don't they account for the ten minutes after five o-clock? I'm on floor 4 of 14, and by the time it gets to me it is full and it still stops at every floor. You would think it would be easy enough to put in a rule where if it has stopped at a certain number of times (without someone selecting a floor other than ground) that it will be full.

comment Quickly and intuitively entering quantity and item
Setting sensible defaults for item numbers can go a long way with this design (if they are applicable to your data, of course). Kobolds may always come in bands of ten, but a dragon is a solitary beast :-)

comment Min. opt. and max. value of a small field
Would it suffice to have a simple pop-up when focusing on the field? Words to the effect of "enter a value between xxx and xxx"
