I have a project where a lot of data look alike but however they represent different things. For example I have data that contain 0 or 1 but this could represent a text value or a boolean.
A good idea would be to associate to each type of data an icon, but the question is what type of icon would someone use to represent the fallowing:
Any idea would be great.
@timpone I agree with you but imagine the fact that the user might not be a programmer and wants to edit a set of booleans and he is expected to write down only 1 or 0 but if he is not aware what type of data he is allowed to enter he will not be able to use it properly.
However on a small display such a smartphone I find it hard to use a rich application like phpmyadmin on a daily basis, therefore this is why I thought that visual helpers like icons might be a good idea.
