ANNOUNCEMENT: BayCHI event on Rich Internet Applications (8/10)

Hi people,

I know we have a pretty large Bay Area population on here (sorry if you are
not one of them), but I thought this might be of interest to people (BTW,
people can feel free to send me events and I can post them to the list as
well.)

The event is about Rich Internet Applications (RIAs).
It is in Palo Alto, CA on Aug 10th
For more information go to http://www.baychi.org/calendar/20040810/

I wish I could go but I can support this panel by posting here and other
places.

Maybe someone who attends can give a report back.

Thanx

Good Examples of Physicality in Web Visual Design

All,

I am currently engaged in a Web application project for which the
client would like to incorporate a certain degree of machine-like
physicality in the visual and interaction design (e.g. "like iTunes").
I run up against this request all of the time, and typically argue
that focusing on information display and avoiding the propagation of
extraneous "chrome" is critical in a Web environment, especially,
given the fact that the Web page is already nested within the browser
chrome.

Colours and Interfaces

I´m interested in studying the effect of different colours in
interfaces. I mean, how can I choose the best colour to communicate
something, to stress something, etc. What colour for a buttom, what
colour for a line...

I would like to find book on that. Can I ask for suggestions?

Maybe there´s not book aboutcolours in Interfaces but there're books about
colour wich can be applied to interfaces.

Re: Design Methodology for GUI development

> Design Methodology for GUI development (Stephen Mallett)

I'll second what others have written: UML certainly isn't a method, but
can be a useful notation system. I currently work with developers and
system architects (and even marketers and salespeople) who "get it"
when I adhere to something like UML diagrams. I don't, unlike others
here, prefer to jump directly into prototyping. UML Use Case, Activity,
and Object diagrams let me pretty quickly translate product
requirements into another form.

RE: RE: Question: Numerical ranges in form inputs

Hey there folks,

Just a general reminder that attachments are not allowed according to the
Guidelines for use of this list
(http://interactiondesigners.com/discussGuidelines.html).

And I quote:

Email Attachments and Format

Emails sent to the list can be in plain text or HTML format. Emails should
not contain any attachments. Should a user want to reference an image,
sound, or document, that file should be placed online and referenced in the
mail for optional downloading.

Question: Numerical ranges in form inputs

All,

I'm working on a web form which allows the user to enter a 1) single number or 2) range of numbers in a text input field.

Problem: I need to communicate to the user that a range is allowed within this text input field (e.g. 1-4; 5,6,7). There may be more than one field on the page where the user can enter a range.

Does anyone have any supported research with labeling such fields in a way that is immediately clear for the user?
