Hi, I'm a medical student and I enjoy programming in my spare time. I'm particularly interested in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Expression Blend and modern user interface (UI) design.

My current project is a medical records program which I hope one day will be a viable commercial package.

comment What's the best way to highlight a Required field on a web form before submission?
Using bold labels can also cause problems.

comment Combining all the address fields into one?
I agree, a watermark would be very helpful in this situation.

I hadn't thought to put the command buttons to the left of the string items. Most UIs I've come across put them to the right of the item to be edited. Thanks!

comment Moving items between tabs
No, this is an uncommon task. It would only be performed if the item was created under the wrong category/tab. Each item will clearly belong to a particular category. +1 I'll need to think of some way to make it clear that the tab headers are the drop targets.

Thanks for your response and encouragement. +1 Your absolutely right, I had thought about right clicking and will implement it. I was also leaning towards drag and drop. Do you have any suggestions about how to make the drag drop function obvious to the user?

comment Moving items between tabs
@DA01 The purpose of the 3 tabs (History, Exam, Plan) is to group items which are similar. The tabs are also sequential. A doctor will first take a history, then perform an exam and form a plan. Moving items would be rare, but I feel I should allow for it because a user may accidentally create a template item under the wrong category. In place of a tab control, what would you suggest?

If I were to implement both, do you think the toolbar button should open a new page (like Google) or a dialog (like Outlook)?
