Can anyone point me in the direction of a useable design pattern for
an on / off toggle switch to be used online ie using JS / html / css
rather than flash? I'm working on an application that currently uses
colour coding to indicate whether an option is active or not. This
works in the real world i.e. the red light comes on when recording,
but obviously bad for accessibility online due to the different ways
people see colours.
For example, one option in this case is record. There is currently a
button that goes red when the user clicks it to activate recording.
I've suggested simple droplists of on / off by each option, but this
feels a bit clunky, and the client felt it was a bit 1999...
