I am looking for inspiration on this. We have a Dot.Net web application, where we are building pretty complicated criteria. It works, but I would like to change this, re-shape this, possibly from the ground up.
The idea: Basically there is a background process, we are receiving data. In order for us to parse it, they will set up criteria. We can call it "filter". It probably makes more sense
- If the parsed data, has a "created date" field, that is a weekday, then do something
- If the parsed data, has a "code" field, that contains these letters "ABC", then do something else
- If the parsed data, has a "amount" field, and that amount is greater than 1000, than do something
- If the parsed data, has a "color" field, and that is one of these: "red, blue, green", then do something We are going to let the user go even deeper.
Example: If 1 AND 2 AND 3 AND 4 (from above) are all true, then "do something really specific"
You can go even further: If ((1 AND 2) OR (3 AND 4)) , from above, then "do something different"
I hope you see what I mean
So we have basically 2 steps A. let the user introduce 1, 2, 3, 4 somehow B. let the user make it more complicated
This all works. But in a totally non-user-friendly way.
I was wondering if there is something out there, that is well known, easy to use, easy to understand, that is doing the same thing.
I would really like to get some inspiration to rebuild our User Interface, which is currently using too much dropdownlists, checkboxes and such.

Belgium, Netherlands OR Luxembourg... :-/
