Just wanted to make folks aware, I recently began work on a book for
Rosenfeld Media about Web Form Design. I hoping there's genuine
interest on this list in the topic as Interaction Designers deal with
forms A LOT.
As such, if you have experiences, ideas, or best practices to share
from your work -I'd be very interested in hearing from you. Either
float me a note directly, leave a comment on the book in progress
site, or subscribe to the RSS feed there to simply stay in the loop
I am working on a client project, where the client is gradually
transitioning forms on their site to use auto completion (w/ AJAX). I
would like to visually signal to users which form fields are auto
completing and which ones are "static". I am wondering if there is a
"pattern" for alerting to users this type of functionality. We can
create something for this client's purpose, but I would like leverage
any convention, if there is already one out there.
