Provide Critical Context for Truncated Content

Juillet 25, 2024
Tooltips allow users to view the full content of a cell without disrupting the grid layout or requiring them to scroll or resize columns.

In datagrids, tooltips are on-demand informational popups that appear when hovering over a cell. They provide critical context for truncated content, enhancing usability by allowing users to view the full data point without sacrificing grid layout or requiring them to navigate elsewhere. This improves data comprehension and reduces the need for scrolling or resizing columns, leading to a more efficient user experience.

Several jQuery grid controls offer support for tooltips including:

  • DevExtreme HTML5 JavaScript Data Grid (part of DevExtreme Complete by DevExpress) empowers you with customizable tooltips for clear data visualization in your HTML5 grids.
  • Ignite UI jQuery Grid (part of Infragistics Ignite UI) equips your jQuery grids with informative hover popups, enhancing data comprehension.
  • Syncfusion Grid control for JavaScript (part of Syncfusion Essential Studio Enterprise) offers context-rich tooltips for truncated content, improving user experience.
  • jQWidgets Grid offers customizable tooltip functionality, allowing developers to display informative overlays on hover for enhanced data clarity.

Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) with visual editing allow developers to manipulate and arrange graphical elements and code components using a user-friendly, often drag-and-drop, interface. This capability enhances the development process by providing real-time visual feedback, reducing the need to manually write extensive code for UI layouts and other visual elements. The benefits include increased efficiency, as developers can quickly iterate and refine designs, improved accuracy through immediate visual validation of changes, and a more intuitive development experience that bridges the gap between design and implementation, ultimately leading to faster project completion and higher quality software products.

Several IDEs offer visual editing including:

  • IntelliJ IDEA by JetBrains, lets you visually edit layouts and UI elements, enhancing productivity with its intuitive design tools and real-time feedback.
  • Delphi Professional by Embarcadero, allows you to create and adjust graphical interfaces seamlessly, streamlining the development of visually rich applications efficiently.
  • EiffelStudio by Eiffel Software provides a robust environment for visual editing, allowing developers to design and adjust UIs with precision and immediate visual confirmation.
  • B4i (iOS) by Anywhere Software, facilitates the visual design of iOS applications, enabling swift and accurate manipulation of UI components for rapid development.
