Uh, "pretty involved"? So?

Other people seem to be interested -- why take this off-list?

Isn't the point of having this list to share across the entire community?

And could this be the only mail I've ever sent with nothing but questions? :-)

Examples of complex checkbox treeviews

We have a thick desktop app that uses a checkbox treeview to show data
layers that are available to display in a separate window. However,
although Checkboxes look nice and consistent in this display they are
the wrong control to use in some cases. A checkbox implies that more
than one data layer can be chosen, however some data layers are mutually
exclusive, others are not. On first pass it struck me that either the
checkboxes should only appear next to those data layers that are
inclusive and disappear when a mutually exclusive one is chosen.

Looking for great concept videos


I'm exploring the use of concept videos in communicating product and
user experience concepts to executives and product stakeholders.

There was this series of concept video that I saw somewhere on the
Internet about a year or two before. Unfortunately, I can't quite
remember the details of it.

There were about five short video clips. Each clip narrated a usage
scenario. They featured real actors but with their face masked by a
white oval. The product concept was related to smart homes and green

If you know what I'm talking about, please let me know.

The tab button question brings up something I had been meaning to
ask Is there a standard for button placement in web applications?

In a wizard or guide, I usually go with the forward to the right and
the cancel or back to the left.

Blackberry Storm

I stopped by the Verizon booth in the mall the other day to try out a
Blackberry Storm, the new one with the touchscreen. I'm a current Verizon
customer, and my antique Moto Razor is about to do the El Croako. I'd heard
the Storm had a good browser and a great screen for viewing media. Since
Verizon has treated me pretty well and I've no complaints about their
service, I was curious about their new phone.

The guy at the booth let me play with theirs. I tried typing on it, and was
not very successful.

Articles etc on interface structures

Hi guys

I'm writing some workshop material on high-level structures for
interfaces - explaining different high-level patterns that an interface
may use (e.g. linear, two/three panels, canvas plus tools, dashboards etc)

I always like to provide additional reading, but can't find any good
references for this material, except for the Tidwell book. Most pattern
libraries focus on much more granular combinations of components, not
the high-level structure.

Any ideas for articles or references?
