Design-oriented updates in SKY UX versions 1.5.0 - 1.5.9
We have begun to create layout directives to streamline the design and development of features using core SKY UX layout patterns. The first of these is the Page Summary.
We wrapped the Bootstrap Alert component to simplify making alerts dismissible and follow SKY UX styling.
This allows for uploading and displaying an image to identify a record.
We created a standard layout and styling for error messaging. Now that this core piece is in place we can create a set of standard content for common error types.
We extended this control to allow a “Specific date range” option in cases where the predefined date ranges are insufficient.
There were some elements that were not visually differentiated when in their focused state. These were given a visual differentiation to help with usability overall, but particularly with keyboard interaction.
- Checkbox and radio button
- Context menu button
- Tile header icon buttons
In the works
We are adding some new functionality to the Checklist control:
- Single-select mode
- Standard launcher control
- Standard selected-item view
There is some cleanup work going on around file sizes and error handling.
