comment Why are spinning animations typically used for loading sequences?
Yes, you are right. Indefinite progress is a clear sign of poor application design.

comment What is the best way to lay out a list of date ranges in a table?
@leora it is highly unlikely you'll get any other answer, mainly because Alexey Kolchenko provided the best one. Anyway, I'm writing this comment to highlight the need to support different vacation types. See the example: img.chandoo.org/dashboards/…

comment Are hourglass cursors still relevant?
I was close to start writing the same. @Chris, try to do everything asynchronously and provide a simple way to see the progress. Nowadays with so many cores every CPU has it is almost a crime to show busy cursor or block a user in any other way.

Yes, true. Indeterminate progress bar. Thank you.

comment How to explain that a data is only in localStorage?
"Temporary storage" can be used instead of "Local storage". Anyway, it might be useful to have some additional help message, available by a link or as a balloon.

comment How should I visually represent multiple three-state flags?
Yes, you are right. It is time to cleanup it a bit.

Yes, you are right. Thank you. BTW, it looks like my answer repeats yours a bit. Do you want me to remove it?

comment Graphic representation of various data types
@AlexeyKolchenko, as a programmer from Ukraine I can reassure you yet another abstraction layer does not work :) T/F for Boolean is a clear mistake (my subjective opinion). What you are saying is, Renat, please try not to forget the following chain: T/F -> True/False -> Boolean. I can do that, no problem :) The question is, why do you want me to do that? Only because you decided to use small icons in order to help me? There is no need to add metaphors. We have a lot already :)

comment Not known - Yes - No Buttons
It might be a bit confusing to have check-boxes in that table. Is there any hint to let me know I can't check also No column for the first row? Same problem with buttons.

I do not prefer a switch in this case. Obviously checkbox is much better taking into account initial problem.

@Izhaki, thank you very much, I'll update the answer in a second. I misread/misunderstand initial requirements.

Does it scale? Is there any reason to have the same icon for Boolean and Bytes? It will confuse a user for sure.

Could you provide some additional details? Where do you want to use type icons?

comment Small tables on big screens
Jop, it is not a problem titles are big. The actual problem text is too small.

comment (Android) Alternative to ExpandableListView that provides the same quick access to child items
Hello SidhNor, you are welcome. What about option #6? It is simple, commonly used for file-system browsing, so users will easily recognize the idea.

comment What are the best options to show huge number of errors on multiple paginated list
@RajRadhakrishnan, what is confusing you? You have paging in order to deal with huge lists. Column ordering is a must anyway and it should work with paging as well.

comment What are the best options to show huge number of errors on multiple paginated list
Not necessarily a problem. Color coding for the entire row will break readability. BTW, how will you compensate absence of column ordering?

comment Small tables on big screens
Ok, I see. Answering your first question: I've described my general impression. Titles will require some attention (I will update the answer in several sec.)
