Which Input When?


The inputs we inter­act with in real life follow some pretty basic rules, and we can get really confu­sed if they don’t. If you’re trying to mani­pu­late the tempe­ra­ture of a tap, for instance, only the range slider input makes sense. But if you were trying to mani­pu­late the tempe­ra­ture of your kettle, it’d be best to use the step­pers on the right.

Unfor­tu­na­tely, what can seem obvious in real life can get confu­sing when we move to soft­ware. Soft­ware is more abstract, and can deal with really complex sets of data that simply don’t appear in your kitchen. Here are some simple rules which can help guide which type of input you should use when, to make your design as intui­tive to use as possible.
