[Event] IxDA NYC - Thurs, August 13 - Prototyping for UX Practitioners

Ever had a moment when you’re presenting your detailed design work and you
get an unenthusiastic "Is that it?" from your audience?

This can sometimes happen when a project has been in design development
without conceptual feedback or consensus-building. We often move forward
rapidly with our detailed design work due to time pressure. Sure, we
incorporate our assumptions about the users, their needs, the technology,
and the business.

How to design the properties of a floating results panel?


We're desiging a floating results panel which show different sets of
records based on filters and/or search parameters.

The filtering and search is already a standard part of the UI grid
component (like JIDE or other data grids).

But we would also like to add the options to:
a) refresh the data periodically (like a monitoring panel)
b) show results in a map

Both options will be optional and the user must be able to
enable/disable them per results panel. (because we can have more

Any suggestions on how to design this properly ?

With regards,
