Filtering mechanisms?

I was wondering if people had favorite RIA filtering examples long lists.

In particular, I want some ideas for filtering large lists based on
several attributes where the attributes have different characteristis.

For instance, a filter might include date parameters (which use a
calendar widget), states (in a drop down or some other selection
mechanism), and a status (which could have 5 states).

Standards development for industry applications (byyesterday :-)

Have you looked at the Y! Developer Network? Their YUI library may or may not be appropriate for your application(s); if it isn't, it may be a good place for insight/ideas on how to approach. If so, the library and API docs are downloadable from their site.

Standards development for industry applications (by yesterday :-)

Hello all,

I need some advice! We are currently developing a set of standards for for
interface design and user interaction at my company. I have found many
examples of style guides for e-commerce applications and public web-sites,
but very little guidance regarding more complex industry-based applications.
Has anyone had any experience in creating and applying standards to a
diverse set of industry strength applications?

My company deals with functionality such as timeslot booking, complex data
entry/viewing, and transaction-based communication.

Case study

There is not a lot of examples or case studies of what people are working on
in the mobile space. I am talking about normal day-to-day cases, it does not
have to be the spectacular stuff.

Gmail - confusing placement of functions?


In gmail's "Inbox" the following primary funtions are available:

"Archive", "Report Spam", "Delete"

Under "Spam":

"Delete forever", "Not Spam"

i used to check the Spams also because you never know when will you find
an email there from an old contact or something. But the so called
mental modells of the two are different.
So when i'm in Spam, and i checked the mails, i want to delete them and
i want to push the button on the right, but that would be wrong...

What do you think?
