The following is a wireframe of a listing which I am working on and I have couple of questions that needs to be clarified. As you can see, this is a tiled listing and it consists of an image, some text ( a title, desc, etc ) and action buttons. My questions are as following.
In each of these boxes the title could be longer and the longer the text become, I face a problem whether to clip the text or come up with a different approach.
as for the action buttons too, there could be more actions and clipping is not an option.
There is an option where, a user could select multiple boxes in order to perform group actions. What would be the best approach to show the user that the boxes have a select state and the best way to show the user to trigger the select state. I thought of using a button over the listing saying "select" and when triggered, a metro style check would appear over each box where the user could select them.
What could be the best UX approach for such scenarios where the container width is fixed.
