I was looking for your opinions on toggle buttons: should the icon on the toggle button describe the consequence of pressing the button, or should it describe the current state (in this specific case, open/closed for adding data to)?
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.
