We are migrating from an old system to a new HTML5 web based system. The earlier system had the error messages like
- "The message(s) was deleted successfully."
- "Are you sure you want to delete selected message(s)?"
The approach of adding (s) for multiple messages seems dated. Is it still an appropriate practice in the industry?
The approach I feel right would be to show either messages or message based on the action taken. Is there any alternative which makes it generic irrespective of number of messages acted upon?
What are the current trends in the industry?
