I am working on an iOS application, and I was wondering how my alert should be. The alert asks the user if they have finished adding the info. As the info cannot be edited later, I wanted to make sure that the user did not accidentally press the button.
As you may have noticed with iOS alerts, developers have the option to bold an action, using the
cancel style. This option is generally used against destructive action, such as:
In this example, the action on the right is
destructive and the one on the left is
You can also have
In this case, the action on the right is
default, and the one on the left is still
cancel. Here is the scenario I have within my app:
I have the option Yes and No. I want to make sure that the user is aware that they cannot edit this, and I don't want them to accidentally submit it. This would lead me to put the
cancel option on the No action. I also do not want them to think they might do something incorrectly if I put the
cancel on the No. That would lead me to put the
cancel option on the Yes.
Which action should I put the cancel style on? Thanks!
