Question UI controls. 

I'm looking for the best way to spec a a UI when a  menu selection changes the available fields on the UI.

For example choose a state menu with 20 states.

Each state may load its own set of control and text fields.

I know I can show the change when creating multiple mockups in balsamiq in a presentation/PDF but I'm wondering if there is an cleaner way especially since this is going right a developer. I'm very new and don't have a lot of guidance on this. I'm just wondering if there is a standard way of showing changes to the UI.

Re: Question UI controls. 

Hi Pilfro

 

I'd do it in Balsamiq. You can make Balsamiq dynamic by using states or something i.e. you spec a UI for each state and then have a controller on a button or whatever to show the fields for each different state. So the developers can see each screen by clicking the state changing thing.

Re: Question UI controls. 

Thank you,

I did end up doing that with balsamiq. I Highlighted the changes when the state changed etc.

Thanks!

It may sound routine, but the importance of operational decisions cannot be underestimated. After all, not a day goes by without even the smallest business making dozens, if not hundreds of operational decisions that may affect the bottom line. Elevate these to large scale companies and we are talking thousands, if not millions of actions that impa...
