Topic: Display of system messages - MsgBox, Popup, Log, etc
Display of system messages - the important task to which often do not give proper attention. I know 4 methods of display of messages: 1. The Dialog box. Entered something not so - bang! there is a window where you are written that the fool and "". You will not agree Yet, the program does not allow anything to make. 2. The message built in the interface, for example red exclamation point near a text box. 3. A pop-up window (which either disappears itself, or waits while it will be closed by the user, but thus does not lock data input). 4. The panel/table with the list of messages. So. In fashionable dialog boxes for messages try to avoid. Type a bad form example. There are 3 variants. Thus the variant 2 (built in the interface) is actual only for data entry forms. And this variant is preferable to data entry forms. Sometimes for data entry forms use also a pop-up window, but it is not so convenient (type entered incorrect email, and the window "email above floated is entered with an error", not so it is convenient as the message near TextBox). And a variant 3 and 4 as a matter of fact are very similar - these variants for the notification about "background problems" when demons could not make something (for example, it was not possible to install update). And a variant 4, , more advanced. And what variant for system messages is preferred by you? Whether pop-up windows for messages are pleasant to you or the panel/table is better?
