I'm working on an application where i m searching on 3 categories(All,people, company) and showing results in separate tables for all the above categories.
here are the business cases:
if records available in every category show 2 grids with results
if records available in 1 category show 1 grid and don't show any message for other categories which i think is bad practice.
But there is another case that my user is well trained and they know the behavior of the screen. And in future there could be n number of categories so showing message for each category doesn't make any sense.
And I'm confused: should I show message or not, I need some advice.
